Whether you’re a competitive athlete or a weekend warrior, it’s no fun to be sidelined by a painful sports-related injury.

To get back to the activities you love, visit the board-certified orthopaedic doctors at the Centers for Advanced Orthopaedics - Parkway Division. We have helped thousands of people recover from sports injuries and reclaim their lifestyles.

Our physicians provide sports medicine care to physically active and athletic people of all ages in Hagerstown, Maryland and the surrounding quad-state region. They have many years of experience diagnosing and treating a wide range of sports-related injuries affecting the shoulder, elbow, wrist, knee, and ankle.

In most cases, our doctors will recommend conservative treatment, such as physical or occupational therapy, before surgery. If surgery is necessary, however, our doctors are experts in minimally invasive, arthroscopic treatment and joint replacement surgery of the shoulder, knee, and hip.


Dr. Rothen, a board-certified orthopaedic sports medicine physician, specializes in treating sports-related injuries in grade school, high school, and collegiate athletes. She is personally active in various sporting endeavors herself, thus allowing her to understand the mind and body of an athlete.

Dr. Amalfitano, who is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon is very experienced in treating sports-related injuries in athletes.
