Sports medicine focuses on the non-surgical treatment, rehabilitation, and prevention of sport and musculoskeletal injuries. At BASS Medical Group, our sports medicine physicians see a variety of patients including athletes, dancers, musicians, and performing artists of all ages and ability levels. They are board certified in sports medicine, and some hold board certifications in other specialties such as internal medicine or orthopedic surgery. Our physicians with multi-specialty experience are able to apply their interdisciplinary knowledge and insight to all areas of their practice, and are qualified to treat a broad range of conditions.
Professional Athlete Sport Medicine Experience
Many of our sports medicine physicians have experience working with notable organizations and athletes. These include national teams such as USA Synchronized Swimming and USA Figure Skating, USA Weightlifting, as well as professional MLB and NFL players.

At BASS Medical Group, our doctors are prepared to treat individuals of all activity levels, from the weekend warrior to the leisure walker. BASS Medical Group’s Sports Medicine specialists provide care to patients in San Francisco, Bay Area and Northern California.
