LAU Medical Center - Rizk Hospital

Sports Medicine

Until most recently, sports related injuries have been treated by general orthopedic surgeons, regardless of the patient’s activity or athletic level.

At LAU Medical Center – Rizk Hospital, our patients have access to sophisticated and comprehensive care for sports provided by a team of physicians, and physical therapists specializing in all types of sport-related injuries. Predominantly, we treat ligamentous and tendinous injuries of the knee, shoulder and ankle. Skilled surgeons who have experience in ACL/PCL repair and shoulder instability perform arthroscopic procedures on a regular basis. Most sports-related surgeries are carried out using regional anesthesia and sedation only. This results in effective perioperative pain management, extending into post-operative period with improved early mobilization.

Since 2004 we have been in close contact with the Lebanese and regional sports federations, and many elite athletes have been treated at our institution.

Physicians at LAU Medical Center – Rizk Hospital have already performed arthroscopic and sports-related procedures in neighboring countries.

Our center also provides its services to many non-athletes with other types of musculoskeletal injuries.
