Comprehensive Care for the Elbow

Juneau Bone and Joint Center has one of the only Sports Medicine Certified Physicians in all of Southeast Alaska, John Bursell, MD.  Our doctors and sports medicine specialists diagnose, treat, and rehabilitate sports-related conditions and injuries, as well as help athletes improve their performance.  

Sports medicine injuries come in a variety of forms and can affect your bones, tendons, ligaments and joints.  A sports medicine injury can be caused by overuse or by acute injury such as a contusion or fall. Overuse sports injuries come gradually over time from repetitive strain. These injuries commonly involve the elbow, shoulders, feet, and knees.
