Sports Medicine Care When You Need it

The Sports Medicine Program at Mass General Brigham now offers access to sports medicine experts when you need them most. We'll schedule you for a same-day virtual visit (in most cases) with one of our providers from Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Newton-Wellesley Hospital or Salem Hospital. During your video appointment, you will speak with an experienced sports medicine practitioner who will:

  • Help you better understand your injury
  • Arrange important next steps on your path to recovery
  • Provide fast access to one of our world-class sports medicine physicians or surgeons, in many cases as soon as the next day (when necessary)
