“If you are injured playing a sport or just being active, you can call Mercy Health Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine’s sports injury hotline at 844-9GO-PLAY (946-7529) to set up an appointment with a sports medicine specialist that day or the next business day,” said Denver Stanfield, MD, Medical Director of Mercy Health Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine. “The sooner you can get treated, the sooner you can get back to your healthy, active life.”
