Peninsula Bone & Joint Clinic’s Sports Medicine Specialists, specialize in providing comprehensive sports medicine services including the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of athletic injuries. Regardless of the level of the athlete—recreational, high school, college, even professionals—all our surgeons strive to provide the highest quality, state-of-the-art health care services.
Our Sports Medicine specialists provide a comprehensive approach to treating sports injuries, which includes superior diagnostics, physical therapy, pain management, and when necessary, the latest surgical techniques. Commonly thought of as “athlete’s medicine,” sports medicine is really a unique approach to the care of injuries and conditions that occur not only in athletes, but also normal, active people. As a matter of fact, anyone with an injury or condition that limits their activity level can benefit from a sports medicine approach. Whether you are a collegiate athlete, weekend warrior, or sedentary person wishing to get more active, sports medicine applies to you.
One of the main goals of sports medicine is to put off major orthopedic surgery (such as joint replacement) as long as possible or even remove the need altogether with physical therapy, minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery and timely care.
When everything is working well, you hardly give them a thought. But when a problem arises, it’s often impossible to ignore.
At some time in life, you may experience heel, ankle or foot pain.
““I believe that excellent outcomes can be achieved with clear communication and treatment plans that are tailored to the individual needs of the patient. I emphasize injury prevention and utilize a multidisciplinary team which includes highly trained physical therapists. Careful diagnostic evaluation, compassionate care, and application of current medical information and surgical technique are all important for returning patients to their pre-injury level of activity.”

Rotator Cuff Repair w/Regenesorb
Dr. Paul Abeyta utilizes the latest in bio-compatible and advanced healing suture systems available in his Rotator Cuff Repair procedures. Building on the success of the innovative HEALICOIL PK design, this new suture anchor is the first device to use Smith & Nephew’s proprietary REGENESORB material — an advanced biocomposite that has been shown in pre-clinical studies to be absorbed and replaced by bone within 24 months.
The SCP® Procedure is a minimally-invasive surgery that targets and fills subchondral bone defects, often referred to as Bone Marrow Lesions (BML). These often-painful defects are in the spongy cancellous bone that underlies the cortical bone. The procedure is usually performed along with arthroscopy (“scoping”) of the nearby joint, allowing your surgeon to visualize and treat findings inside the joint.
