Our Philosophy of Care

Sports medicine at University of Colorado HospitalActive people of all ages get injured from time to time. At CU Sports Medicine, we treat both competitive and recreational athletes for sports and related injuries.

Our experienced doctors provide comprehensive care for wide range of injuries. With radiology and rehabilitation services conveniently located on-site at our Colorado Center location, orthopedic specialists work with radiologists, certified athletic trainers, and physical therapists to return patients quickly and safely to their normal activities.

Our patients receive diagnostic tests and a physician's evaluation on the same day in the same location. We want to get you back on the go as quickly and safely as possible.

Imaging at the Colorado Center

3.0T MRI at the Colorado Center

CU Sports Medicine uses 3.0T MRI technology to offer the highest level of imaging available for earlier diagnosis of a variety of medical conditions, with a special focus on orthopedic and spine imaging.

This allows our fellowship-trained radiologists to identify potential problems and provide you with more information for a more accurate diagnosis.

Designed for patient comfort

The 3.0T MRI is more patient friendly, as the patient opening is the most compact "short bore" of any 3.0T system available. This makes it particularly accommodating for imaging limbs in sports-related cases.
