The Tulane Institute of Sports Medicine (TISM), located on the Tulane University uptown campus, adjacent to the Reily Student Recreational Center, initially developed by Dr. Michael Brunet, is one of the premier sports medicine facilities in the Southeast. TISM has a full array of services with clinic visits, rehabilitation and surgical intervention. It has two x-ray machines and a magnetic resolution imaging scanner of high quality. TISM also has a complete physical therapy area (including an aquatic rehabilitation facility) as well as a human performance lab for testing preoperatively and postoperatively in assessing return to play. The Tulane Institute of Sports Medicine is open and available for athletes of all ages including children, high school, college, and older recreational athletes.

The Sports Medicine Section of the Department of Orthopaedics at Tulane University Hospital and Clinics offers a complete exposure to sports medicine patients of all ages. The Division of Sports Medicine takes care of Tulane University, a division one school, with all of its associated teams. The resident is exposed to college athletes at a high level of performance including football, basketball, baseball, volleyball, soccer, tennis, swimming and track and field. The Sports Medicine Division also takes care of all of the Orleans Parish and Plaquemines Parish high schools; we provide coverage to these high schools on a weekly basis during football season and during the remainder of the year. From a physical examination standpoint, exposure to athletics, and game coverage, the resident becomes well acquainted with all facets of the sports medicine patient. The Tulane Sports Medicine service performs approximately 15 to 16 cases per week in all areas of sports medicine including shoulder, elbow, wrist, knee, hip and ankle. The resident becomes well acquainted with every aspect of surgical intervention in the sports medicine field. We have a full service arthroscopy lab available to residents for teaching and training and conduct routine laboratory training sessions on a monthly basis.
