State Semi-Finals Saturday at 3pm. We hope to see lots of Bulldog fans at the game.


What can we see with an X-Ray vs MRI? There are certainly limitations to both imaging studies, but when used together we can see a much clearer picture of the injury.


From our family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving. Our offices will be closed Thursday November 24th and Friday November 25th. We will reopen with regular hours on Monday November 28th.

Post Turkey Day playoff football this week. What could be better?! We will be providing medical coverage at both games. We hope to see you from the field.


X-Rays are a quick and efficient way for your provider to see your bones and joints. Some of the things we look for are growth plate abnormalities, limb alignment, joint space narrowing, and loose bodies. These images, along with a physical examination, allow your provider to determine the best course of treatment.

Signs and symptoms of childhood bone cancer are often disguised as very common injuries. The most common misdiagnosis is simple growing pains or muscle strains.

We're looking to raise awareness of this September!

Bone cancer accounts for 4% of all childhood cancers.

The most common types of bone cancer are osteosarcoma (52%) and Ewing sarcoma (39%).

We're looking to raise awareness of this September!

Some symptoms of bone cancer in children include:
- Pain, stiffness or tenderness
- Pain that gets progressively worse over time
- Pain that awakes the child from sound sleep
- Swelling or mass around the affected bone
- Decreased motor skills; including difficulty walking or limping
- Weak bones, which may lead to a fracture
- Fatigue
- Weight loss
- Anemia

The National Sports Medicine Institute specializes in the evaluation and treatment of Orthopaedic and Sports-related conditions.

We screen all of our patients for bone cancers but when it comes to treatment of bone cancer we refer our patients to highly qualified pediatric oncologist and orthopaedic oncologist.

Childhood cancer research is consistently underfunded and treatments can be financially devastating to families.

Donations to local and national organizations like Team Mathias and the American Cancer Society can help patients and families find support and access to care.
