Lakeland, FL — Watson Clinic is pleased to announce the opening of a new facility devoted to offering a wide array of sports medicine and physical therapy services.
Scheduled to open for patient appointments on Tuesday, September 6, Watson Clinic Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine will provide a rotation of board-certified specialists from Watson Clinic’s team of physical therapists, sports medicine experts, orthopaedic surgeons and physician assistants, and an inventory of the most highly advanced rehabilitation technologies in the industry including a state-of-the-art anti-gravity treadmill.
The appealing new facility will be housed at 2190 E. County Road 540A in south Lakeland, and will be operate from 7 am to 6 pm Monday through Friday.
“Watson Clinic has long been regarded as a leader in the sports medicine arena by the community of Lakeland and its vicinity,” says board-certified orthopaedic surgeon and sports medicine specialist Phuc Vo, MD. “It’s a reputation that accounts for our standing as the official medical provider of the Detroit Tigers Florida Operations and the Lakeland Flying Tigers, and many other sports teams – professional and otherwise – throughout our community.”
The new location will mirror many of the services offered at the Watson Clinic Center for Rehabilitative Medicine, which is located closer to the central and north Lakeland region at 1430 Lakeland Hills Boulevard. “It brings us in closer proximity to many of the school teams we serve from this area,” says sports medicine specialist Salvador O. Montenegro, MD. “It’s also more convenient for our existing patients who reside in south Lakeland, Bartow and surrounding areas and have had to travel longer distances for multiple therapy appointments every week.”
Additional patient benefits offered at this location include:
- Easy access to appointment availability
- Non-surgical treatments, injury prevention techniques, and consultations regarding surgical solutions, including arthroscopic surgeries, minimally invasive joint and reconstructive surgery as well as fracture care.
- Referrals to additional Watson Clinic providers when further specialized care is appropriate
- Comprehensive rehabilitation therapies in the aftermath of sports injuries or surgical procedures from our team of licensed staff
- Pre-season physicals for select high school and professional teams
The public will have an opportunity to tour the facility during a special open house event to be announced soon.
