Sports Medicine

The Sports Medicine Unit was established and exists as an orthopedic service to Lowell General Hospital's patient population, the hospital's physicians and surgeons, and the nursing and technical staff, by providing orthopedic technical assistance, resource information, and direct patient care. The Sports Medicine Department provides comprehensive orthopedic care to the adult and pediatric patients who live in the Greater Lowell area and surrounding communities. We work collaboratively with other departments in the hospital in need of orthopedic services as well as the community of orthopedic specialists and other physicians in the service area.

Sports Medicine appointments are scheduled through the Central Scheduling Department, as well as by the referring orthopedic surgeon or their office. In emergency cases, scheduling and registration may be performed by Emergency Room staff. Patients are to register with the main hospital or Surgery Center before being seen by our orthopedic technicians.
