Brendon Ross, DO, MS, specializes in non-operative orthopaedics, providing comprehensive primary care sports medicine for adult and adolescent patients. Dr. Ross is an expert in treating a wide range of orthopaedic conditions, including acute and chronic sports injuries, tendinitis and osteoarthritis, using exercise medicine and ultrasound-guided injections and procedures. He also uses orthobiologics, such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP), to increase joint mobility, reduce pain and promote faster healing.

As part of his commitment to quality care, Dr. Ross is an avid researcher, evaluating novel treatments and techniques for sports medicine injuries, and he has been a co-investigator in several clinical studies.
