Florida Sports Injury and Orthopedic Institute is located at 1925 Don Wickham Drive, Clermont Florida (352 404 8956). From everyday life to recreational and competitive sports, our goal is to keep you active. Our expert team will work with you to determine the best treatment available for your specific needs. Our expert group of physicians, Dr. Varma, Dr. Athans and Dr. Patterson, offer each patient a complete, cutting-edge approach to evaluation, treatment and rehabilitation needs.

Dr. Amit Varma is a double fellowship trained and double board certified orthopedic surgeon with a sports subspecialty certificate from the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery. He completed one of his subspecialty fellowships under world renowned surgeon Dr. James Andrews. The newest member of our team is Dr. William Athans, orthopedic surgeon.

He completed his orthopedic residency at Orlando Regional Medical Center followed by his fellowship in Sports Medicine and Joint Replacement in Miami, Florida where he had the opportunity to work with and cover professional teams such as the Miami Heat. Dr. Brian Patterson is our non-operative sports medicine physician. He is board certified in family medicine and board certified in physical medicine and rehabilitation, and specializes in non-operative treatment techniques.

We offer patients both non-surgical and surgical options. Some non-surgical approaches to healing include musculoskeletal ultrasound guided injections, visco-supplementation therapy for arthritis, physical therapy, and PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) therapy. PRP is an emerging treatment that combines cutting-edge technology with therapies that work by stimulating the body’s natural healing processes. Some of the surgeries we offer are arthroscopic minimally invasive surgery, ligament reconstruction, and computer assisted joint replacement, and fracture management. 

At Florida Sports Injury and Orthopedic Institute we want our patients to feel welcome and our staff and physicians will do whatever we can to provide you and your family with an excellent experience. We see patients of all ages ranging from the young to the young at heart, from the weekend warrior to the professional athlete. We are team physicians for a number of the local high schools and you will see us out on the sidelines during Friday night high school football games.

At our office we offer Saturday morning sports clinics for all athletes throughout football season. We take pride in being active in our community; we donate our time for local triathlons, the iron man triathlon and events at ESPN Wide World of Sports. You can find us at our new location across from the Live Well Fitness Center, adjacent to South Lake Hospital.
