From pro athletes to weekend warriors, competitors of every age and fitness level choose Bayfront's Sports Medicine Center for its excellent care in treating sports-related injuries. Bayfront's comprehensive capabilities are supported by the area's most innovative facilities and teams of elite physicians, surgeons and caregivers specialized in athlete recovery.
Our Sports Medicine surgeons handle the toughest cases—both in trauma and beyond. When pro tennis star Dave Marshall was sidelined with a potentially career-ending hip injury, he turned to Dr. Brian Burke. To ensure a truly superior outcome, Marshall's injury required a pioneering procedure. That’s why Dr. Burke chose to perform the first ASR hip replacement in the United States at Bayfront. After the successful procedure and swift recovery, Marshall wasn't just back to playing tennis on his new hip—he was winning championships.
Bayfront's facilities have the features athletes can count on for great results. Our two state-of-the-art orthopaedic surgical suites feature Stryker video integration, horizontal laminar air-flow systems and more of the latest technology in healthcare. The private suites at our Joint Innovation Center provide athletes a secluded setting to help them relax during the initial phases of their recovery. But above all, it's the sought-after, specialized staff at Bayfront that sets us apart. From the first diagnosis to the last day of therapy, our comprehensive physicians, surgeons and caregivers ensure a smooth road to recovery from every sports injury.
When healthy triathlete and busy mom Michele Forté faced a debilitating knee injury, she met with one of Bayfront’s finest orthopaedic experts, Dr. George Canizares. His skilled arthroscopic analysis revealed an unfortunate reality—it would take a complete knee replacement to get her back on track. But after less than three days in the hospital, and less than a year of rehabilitation under the care of Sports Medicine physician Dr. Arnold Ramirez, Bayfront got her back to what she loves—competing in triathlons and chasing her five-year-old son.
Bayfront is proud to offer the premier Sports Medicine program in the Tampa Bay area, with the most experienced athletic surgeons and the most complete facilities for every kind of competitor.
