The Vascular Sports Medicine Clinic at Mayo's campuses in Arizona and Minnesota are made up of a multidisciplinary team of medical professionals and researchers with expertise in caring for athletes with vascular disease. Your care may involve specialists in cardiovascular medicine, sports medicine, physical medicine and rehabilitation, orthopedics, vascular surgery, hand surgery, thoracic surgery, vascular medicine and radiology. These experts work together to develop a treatment plan tailored to your needs, which for many people means focusing on maintaining their performance or returning to their previous level of activity as soon as possible.
Many times, sports injuries can be mistaken for overuse injuries. At the Vascular Sports Medicine Clinic, doctors will evaluate you for an accurate diagnosis and offer solutions for prevention or treatment of injury.
Athletes who could benefit from the Vascular Sports Medicine Clinic are those with persistent bone or muscle injuries that don't respond to commonly used therapies. Signs and symptoms may include pain, early fatigue, limb swelling, skin changes, and numbness, tingling or burning.
