Sports Medicine Division

Message from the Chief

Jason Womack, MD The Division of Sports Medicine specializes in the evaluation of musculoskeletal pain and disorders in patients of all ages and athletic backgrounds. From the young athlete to the elder patient with osteoarthritis, we customize a detailed nonoperative treatment plan to improve our patients’ function and pain. Our faculty serve as Team Physicians for all the Rutgers Athletics sports programs providing office and sideline coverage to care for the needs of these elite athletes. In addition to our collegiate responsibilities, we provide sports medicine care to multiple local high schools in Middlesex county. Through medications, detailed physical therapy prescription, musculoskeletal ultrasound, and injection therapy including cortisone, hyaluronic acid and platelet-rich plasma (PRP), we strive to provide the most cutting edge and evidence-based treatments to our patients.

Beyond clinical care, the Division of Sports Medicine is committed to improving and expanding knowledge in musculoskeletal medicine at all levels of medical education. The Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship sponsors two fellows each year to be trained to not only become proficient physicians but leaders in the field of sports medicine. Faculty are highly involved in the musculoskeletal training of residents across many disciplines and are charged with musculoskeletal education of medical students.

Please take time to explore the Division of Sports Medicine through our web pages and if you would like to take advantage of our clinical services or educational opportunities, don’t hesitate to contact us.
