Pittsburgh's Leading Sports Injury Specialist

Sports Medicine 

Primary care sports medicine is the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of non-operative sports-related injuries. Sports medicine specialists emphasize prevention and rehabilitation in addition to acute treatment. “Primary Care Sports Medicine” is used to distinguish it from the type of sports medicine that is practiced by a sports orthopedic doctor.

A primary care sports medicine doctor is often a primary care physician with fellowship training and added qualification in sports medicine who then combines their skills as a sports medicine specialist with their primary specialty. At Martin G. Gregorio MD & Associates, Dr. Domenic Mantella holds dual board certifications in both family medicine and primary care sports medicine, allowing him to provide comprehensive sports medicine care to patients of all ages. We're passionate about helping our patients get back to the activities they love, whether it's running, playing tennis, or just staying active.
