Superior sports medicine care on and off the court

Sports medicine experts from The University of Kansas Health System will be courtside when the 2017 Phillips 66 Big 12 Men’s Basketball Championship gets underway March 8-11 at Sprint Center. This is the seventh consecutive year the health system has served as the preferred healthcare provider of college basketball at Sprint Center.

Sports Medicine and Performance Center staff will provide medical services throughout the tournament. This includes an on-site orthopedic surgeon, cardiologist, family medicine physician, dentist, athletic trainers, radiology technician, and an on-call ophthalmologist and pharmacist for the players, cheerleaders, coaches and officials. Nurses and medical technicians will staff the first aid stations for Sprint Center fans.

“We are dedicated to promoting safety and providing the best care possible for all athletes and fans throughout the region,” said Steve Kennett, Sports Medicine and Performance Center program director for professional sports and special events. “Our expert, highly trained staff is prepared to handle any medical needs.”
