Methodist Sports Medicine Moving to Greenwood
Early next year, Methodist Sports Medicine will open a facility that brings new services to southside residents. The facility will be located on West County Line Road and will integrate physicians, physical therapists, pain management and chiropractic services. Peter Sallay, MD, president of Methodist Sports Medicine, says the organization will provide services that “complement orthopedic services currently available in the area and will bring in sub-specialties that are under-represented on the south side.”
One such specialty is a Mayo Clinic–trained physician who performs “hip preservation surgery.” This innovative therapy is designed to minimize the need for more invasive hip replacement surgery. Also on staff is a doctor with nearly 40 years’ experience in athletic orthopedic surgery, including working with the Colts and a variety of university sport teams.
Dr. Sallay says there will be access to procedures that otherwise would require a visit to the north side of Indianapolis—for example, arthroscopic hip procedures. Now patients can see their doctor, have the procedure performed and participate in any necessary follow-up physical therapy in a single southside location.
Beyond the expertise that will come with the new location, the facility itself is designed with the patient in mind. The flow of patients through the office allows them to obtain the needed services in a timely manner. In addition, the integration of physical therapy and chiropractic services into the same office space enhances communication between the doctors and others. Better, faster communication results in improved patient care.

In addition to the advanced medical capabilities and the integration of multiple disciplines, the office will also feature the latest in technology. One example is in the area of magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI. The facility will house the first-ever digital broadband magnetic resonance system: the Ingenia 3.0T from Philips Healthcare. “It gives our radiologists and orthopedic surgeons access to the high-quality images they need to make informed diagnoses and to provide patients with optimal comfort,” says Dr. Sallay. “With this technology, our patients will experience fast, comfortable exams and fewer re-scans. It’s a win-win for our patients and clinicians.”
Methodist Sports Medicine brings significant expertise to the south side. Their group comprises the official team physicians of the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts, as well as many high school, college and other professional teams. All of the group’s orthopedic surgeons are board certified and leaders in new technologies, procedures and research. For more information, you can visit methodistsports.com.
