Sports Medicine

Local athletes rely on the board-certified, fellowship-trained physicians at Youngstown Orthopaedic Associates to stay in the game. We provide surgery, rehabilitation and therapy programs for student athletes, weekend golfers, runners and others who participate in the Mahoning Valley’s many sports and recreation activities.

Our Sports Medicine Division offers many advanced treatments, including:

  • ACL reconstruction
  • Arthroscopic knee and shoulder surgeries
  • Specialty bracing and splinting
  • Platelet replacement therapy (PRT)

Our sports medicine physicians are Dr. Joseph Stefko and Dr. Thomas Joseph. Both perform arthroscopic and open surgeries for a variety of injuries and ailments.

We also serve local schools through our athletic training service.

Our sports medicine doctors use a team approach, with input from YOA’s physical therapists, athletic trainers and imaging technologists.
