area of expertise
The csm group
The CSM group also provides a concussion management programme for clients who participate in any contact or collision sport. This programme includes baseline testing as well as the diagnosis and appropriate management of these injuries in children, adolescents, and adults. Where appropriate, we liaise with the schools and provide a framework for these learners to return to full academic life before they commence their sport.
Cape Sports Medicine is a partnership between Drs Jason Suter, Jeroen Swart, and Leigh Gordon.
In addition to the founding partners, this practice is staffed by Drs Adrian Rotunno, Sid Allie, Michael Kiessig, Caroline D’Alton, Janesh Ganda, and Gabriell Prinsloo. The multi-disciplinary SSISA team includes sports radiologists, physiotherapists, biokineticists, podiatrists, dietitians, and psychologists. SSISA also provides chronic disease rehabilitation programmes (especially cardiac rehab), for which CSM provides medical support.
We work together with professionals in other allied disciplines to facilitate a multi-disciplinary approach for the optimal non-operative management of injuries. However, where injuries may require surgical intervention, we refer rapidly to our surgical colleagues to optimise recovery and rehabilitation time.
