New Orthpaedic and Sports Medicine Clinic Opens at SouthPoint

Duke Orthopaedics and Duke Sports Medicine are excited to announce a brand new location for the Durham community to come for their orthopaedic and sports medicine needs. The Duke Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Clinic at SouthPoint will open the week of September 22nd, 2003 and will be located in The Duke Health Center at SouthPoint at 6301 Herndon Road. The clinic, which is conveniently located directly across the street from SouthPoint Mall (just off of I-40), will be open from 8 am 5 pm, Monday through Friday. The Duke Sports Medicine Saturday Injury Clinic is currently being held at the new location from 8 am 11 am, and will run through November 22nd of 2003 (see information on Saturday Injury Clinic in this publication).
 
 
Drs. Claude T. Moorman, III, Laurence Higgins, Alison Toth, Bill Garrett, Carl Basamania, Jeffrey Bytomski, David Stanley and physician assistants Chris Cole, John Lohnes and Michael Burkill make up the sports medicine/orthopaedic team that will be seeing patients in the clinic. Conditions treated at the new 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 and shoulder. Medical illnesses and factors such as age, sex and nutritional status are evaluated with respect to their effect on a patient's ability to be active. Non-musculoskeletal related medical illnesses of patients such as asthma, diabetes, dermatology/rashes, high blood pressure and fatigue will also be treated.
 
 
The new clinic has over 10,000 square feet and 10 exam rooms, plus convienient free parking. Duke Sports Medicine is excited to offer a true triangle location for patients in our area, says Dr. Claude T. Moorman, III, director of Duke Sports Medicine. The center offers an on-site radiology suite that will showcase the latest technology in digital imaging. The clinic will also feature a physical therapy gym, specializing in the latest rehabilitation techniques offered by our world-class therapists. This will be a world-class facility bringing Duke expertise and technology out into the community, says Moorman.
 
 
Duke Orthopaedics and Duke Sports Medicine are proud to
offer this new clinic site as a part of our focus on community-based specialty care.
