Sports Medicine

Sports Medicine is a branch of medicine that deals with physical fitness and the treatment and prevention of injuries related to exercise and sports like concussions.

Specializing in the treatment of athletes and other physically active individuals, sports medicine physicians have extensive education in musculoskeletal medicine. Sports Medicine doctors treat injuries such as muscle, ligament, tendon and bone problems, but may also treat chronic illnesses that can affect physical performance, such as asthma and diabetes. The specialized doctors also provide advice on managing and preventing injuries.

Sports Medicine specialists also diagnose and treat medical conditions in which regular exercisers or athletes encounter. These include sports cardiology issues, unexplained underperformance syndrome, exercise-induced asthma, screening for cardiac abnormalities, and diabetes in sports.


Baldwin Bone & Joint’s sports medicine team includes four fellowship-trained sports medicine specialists committed to providing comprehensive streamlined treatment to get patients back in the game of the active lifestyle they enjoy.  

Certified Excellence in Sports Medicine

The collective team of specialty-trained physicians includes Dr. Andy Harcourt, Dr. Drew Corbett, and Dr. J. Keith Spain, who are all fellowship-trained in sports medicine, and general orthopaedic specialist, Dr. Matthew Goldman. In addition, Dr. John Todd and Dr. Drew Corbett are subspecialty certified in the field of sports medicine. The certification means they have achieved a level of proficiency in each of the areas comprising orthopaedic sports medicine as prescribed by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery.

To qualify to sit for the Sports Medicine Certification Examination, a physician must be Board Certified in Orthopaedic Surgery and must submit for review a summary of all sports medicine cases treated over a year, both surgical and non-surgical. After Board approval, the physician must then pass a written Board Certification examination to receive Sports Medicine Subspecialty Certification.

Our sports medicine specialists serve as team physicians for the following football teams:
