Our Sports Medicine Specialists

  • W. Zachary Stone, MD Dr. Stone was born in Texas and grew up in Fort Myers, FL. He then attended the University of Florida in Gainesville where he completed medical school and a residency in orthopedic surgery. Following residency, Dr. Stone remained at the University of Florida to complete a fellowship in adult reconstructive surgery. During fellowship, he had additional training in direct anterior total hip replacement, outpatient hip and knee replacement, complex primary, and revision total joint arthroplasty.

In addition, they focus on the nonsurgical approaches and specialize in the surgical aspects of sports-related injuries including joint replacement, ligament repair and reconstruction, minimally invasive joint arthroscopy, torn tendons, fractures, and dislocations.
Our sports medicine specialists often serve as team physicians or surgical consultants at area high schools.

If an athlete has a medical issue, we can help them recover and return to activity with a customized treatment plan that includes state-of-the-art technology and minimally invasive techniques, as well as rehabilitation after injury or surgery.
Muscle weakness after surgery is common. Rehabilitation to rebuild muscle strength and size includes resistance training, retraining to increase an athlete’s physical awareness, improving posture and modifying form to change the athlete’s bio mechanics and improve symptoms.
We offer full exercise and conditioning programs to improve a patient’s physical condition and performance.

Not Just for Athletes

Sports medicine is usually associated with athletics: baseball, soccer, football, tennis. Exercise from sports helps keep us healthy and fit. But many are fit because they are active in ways not associated with sports: walking the dog, gardening, playing in the park with grandchildren.

No matter the activity, there is always a chance of injury – whether you tear a ligament in your knee sliding into home plate or hurt your shoulder playing catch with your children. Sports medicine benefits both athletes and those who get their exercise in other ways. This is because sports medicine focuses on prompt diagnosis and treatment of your injury, along with a comprehensive rehabilitation plan to safely return you to the activities you enjoy.

Orthopedic Specialists Sports Medicine Center of Excellence combines the specialties of orthopedics and sports medicine to provide the comprehensive care needed to successfully diagnose, treat and rehabilitate any sports or activity-related injury. The goal is to return you as closely and safely as possible to your full functional level before the injury.
