Tulsa Bone & Joint Associates and St. John Owasso have joined together to provide Owasso Public Schools with a comprehensive sports medicine program. The program includes athletic trainer services and on-site physician coverage at sporting events.
Additionally, Owasso Public Schools (OPS), St. John Owasso and Tulsa Bone & Joint have partnered to develop a student-trainer program for Owasso Public Schools. The Athletic Training Program consists of students assigned to specific sports teams who provide first aid to OPS athletes.
Students accepted into the program are provided an opportunity to learn sports medicine, observe professional athletic trainers at work and help injured athletes with medicine and rehab. Student trainers are under the direction of Tulsa Bone & Joint and head athletic trainers Beth Ramsey and Bryce Sorrier, who supervise the athletic training program for OPS and are under the guidance of team physician Navin Kilambi, MD.

To complement the comprehensive sports medicine program, athletes, students, faculty and family members have convenient access to St. John Owasso. The emergency department, staffed with board-certified physicians trained in emergency medicine, is well-situated two miles from the high school, and available 24/7 to stabilize, examine, and/or render treatment for athletic injuries. Athletes also have preferred access to Tulsa Bone & Joint’s Orthopaedic Urgent Care center.
