El Camino Center for Sports Medicine
While both fun and good for your health, whether by mistake or simple bad luck, injuries can often occur while you play basketball, tennis, or football or participate in any other strenuous activities. If you’ve sustained such an injury, a specialist like Dr. Stephen F. Osborn becomes vital.
Dr. Stephen Osborn in Mountain View, CA, specializes in sports medicine, which is the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of sport- and exercise-related injuries. His other specialty is in arthroscopy, which is the use of an arthroscope to perform orthopedic surgery with minimal incisions.
With both these skills and his many years of experience, Dr. Stephen Osborn is qualified to diagnose and treat just about any orthopedic injury you might experience.
A few examples of injuries Dr. Stephen Osborn treats are:
Dr. Stephen Osborn can also design scaffolds for tissue repair, and he can provide platelet-rich plasma injections. For any injury, you can also receive quality rehabilitation services to restore your body’s function and get you back on the field.

The term orthopedics comes in part from the Greek word orthos, which translates to “correct” or “straight.” Today, the field of orthopedic surgery includes everything from foot to spine; in other words, the whole musculoskeletal system.
Joints, tendons, ligaments, muscles, and bones are all part of this system, and therefore fall within the specialties of orthopedics. Whether you’ve suffered from an ankle fracture or have torn the soft tissue in your shoulder, orthopedic surgery may be the best way for you to regain comfort and functionality.
