Our group has published over 90 research studies in scientific journals, making us among the most highly published sports medicine and musculoskeletal clinical teams in Arizona. We think research is an important part of improving medical practice, and by choosing us for your care, you are getting the latest in evidenced-based medical treatments that many other clinics don't offer.

Our patients who meet eligibility criteria may also be able to voluntarily join ongoing clinical trials for the treatment of various conditions.
