The Duke Sports Science Institute (DSSI) opened on January 2015 in the newly renovated Wallace Building on the Center for Living Campus (3475 Erwin Road
Durham, NC 27705). Also, the clinic offers a fully integrated physical therapy staff, located in the adjacent PepsiCo Building on the mezzanine level, which can see patients on the same day as their clinic visit. The physical therapy pool is also located in the PepsiCo Building.
The Duke Sports Medicine Center Clinic is not just for competitive athletes, but is best defined as a medical specialty that serves all individuals with musculoskeletal injury or pain who seeks to be more active than their medical condition allows.
The DSMC Clinic treatment team includes an extraordinary collection of orthopaedic surgeons and physical therapists. DSMC also offers the highest quality services for women's sports medicine, pediatric sports medicine, sports psychology, primary care/non-orthopaedic related medical care and rheumatology care. Our staff serve as the team physicians for Duke University, including the 2001 and 2010 NCAA Champion men's basketball team, the 2010, 2013, and 2014 NCAA Champion men's lacrosse team, and North Carolina Central University athletic programs. "We work as a team here at DSMC and this is an extremely talented team," says Dr. Claude T. Moorman III, Director of the DSMC. "Our patients deserve the very best care in the world and our job is to deliver that," says Dr. Moorman.
Conditions treated at the Duke Sports Medicine Center Clinic may be due to injury, disease, or to the normal process of aging or disuse that adversely affects an individual's ability to participate in sports or exercise or simply maintain an active lifestyle. The focus is on those injuries affecting the musculoskeletal system, particularly those involving the knee, shoulder, ankle and elbow. Medical illnesses related to sports activity such as asthma, concussion and post-concussion syndrome, mononucleosis, athletic-induced anenorrhea and overtraining syndrome will also be treated.
Duke Sports Medicine is proud to offer another location for the Durham community to come for their sports medicine needs. The Duke Sports Medicine Clinic at Page Road has been open since July 2011. It is located at 4709 Creekstone Drive.
