Duke Women's Sports Medicine
The Duke Sports Medicine Center is proud to offer only the nation's second women's sports medicine program to our patients. Since 2001, Dr. Alison Toth
, orthopaedic surgeon, has been building a world-class program that concentrates on the needs of our female athletes, both high-level and recreational.
The last two decades have seen tremendous gains in women's participation in athletics and fitness activities and only recently has it been recognized that women have unique sports/exercise-related issues, injuries and illnesses that require understanding of their special needs.
The Duke Women's Sports Medicine Program, under the direction of Dr. Toth, envisions a national leadership role in managing the medical needs of active and athletic women throughout their lifespan. Through education and research, the DWSMP will have a great impact on injury prevention and will improve women's health outcomes.
