Performing Arts Medicine Program


The Performing Arts Medicine Program here at Stanford is comprised of world-class providers, engaged in cutting-edge research, and focused on exceptional patient care.  Our goals are to diagnose, effectively treat, and educate our patients in the community, while minimally impacting their ability to perform and returning them to full capacity.  Our performer population includes musicians, dancers, circus artists, and actors.  Many of our providers are trained performers, and very well understand and identify with the biomechanics, requirements, and needs of our patients, and as such, we focus tailoring treatment plans around those elements.
