About W. Andrew Sprouse, MD

Dr. Sprouse is passionate about exercise-as-medicine and helping his patients live an active lifestyle. As a sports medicine doctor, he is specially trained in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of non-surgical musculoskeletal (bones, joints, muscles and tendons) injuries sustained during sports-related activities, as well as everyday aches and pains.

His expertise in Musculoskeletal (MSK) Ultrasound allows for a non-invasive assessment of muscles, tendons and joints in real time at the office, which leads to quicker diagnosis and more efficient care. Dr. Sprouse also specializes in the use of non-surgical treatments for musculoskeletal injuries

Head injuries and the potential for long-term effects are a major concern for athletes. Dr. Sprouse takes a holistic approach to concussion care to ensure his patients are treated properly and make a safe return to their activity.

When not caring for his patients, Dr. Sprouse enjoys traveling with his wife, spending time with his Pomskies, Penny and Bernadette, playing and watching soccer, playing golf and fly-fishing.
