Sports Medicine Needs Prevention. Evaluation. Rehabilitation.
OrthoVirginia is proudly partnered with Saint Gertrude High School to provide top-quality health care to all student-athletes. Athletic trainer Jay Gilmore, ATC, is on site every day for the sports medicine needs for all our Gators and provides support at all games and practices. The athletic trainer’s responsibilities include emergency medical care for athletes injured during play; evaluation and rehabilitation of athletic injuries; prevention of athletic injuries through intervention and education; assistance with insurance claim filing; and providing direct communication with our team physician and student-athlete families.
Dr. Steven Reece has been proudly serving as our Cadets’ team physician for the past 17 years and is excited to start serving our Gators. He covers all our home football games, provides pre-participation physicals for our students, and sees all of our student-athletes in the clinic within 24 hours of injury. With a range of sports medicine experience at the Olympic, professional, collegiate, and high school levels, Dr. Reece specializes in the treatment of both overuse and traumatic orthopedic injuries in people of all ages. Dr. Reece's appointments include medical director of the Sports Medicine Committee for the Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association, as well as an assistant clinical professor at VCU School of Medicine where he assists in the training of medical students and resident physicians.
Students must have a yearly physical on file to participate in a sport at Saint Gertrude. Each year, a new physical is required, which can be completed after May 1 and is valid through June 30 of the following school year.
