I think there's this common misconception that all we do is take care of 18-year-old football players.

This comment from a physiatrist who practices sports medicine opened a recent conversation between Patient Care® and Kevin Carneiro, DO, also a physiatrist who practices sports medicine and is associate professor of neurosurgery and physical medicine rehabilitation at the University of North Carolina (UNC) School of Medicine in Chapel Hill, NC.

In the short interview that follows, Carneiro dispelled this mistaken notion of the role played by sports medicine clinicians in physical medicine and rehabilitation and expanded on the range of patients he sees and the reasons for seeing them.


Kevin Carneiro, DO, is associate professor of neurosurgery and physical medicine rehabilitation at the University of North Carolina (UNC) School of Medicine in Chapel Hill, NC. Carneiro also is the medical director of the Center for the Study of Retired Athletes as well as the Executive Director of the Brain and Body Health Program at UNC. He is the physician for all patients in the Matthew Gfeller Concussion Clinic at UNC.
