For the sixth year, Bothwell Orthopedics & Sports Medicine and Bothwell Peak Sport & Spine are offering a free Saturday morning injury clinic for student-athletes.

Dr. Evan Stout, orthopedic surgeon at Bothwell Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, is the clinic’s attending physician who examines athletes and provides care recommendations.

One of four Bothwell Peak athletic trainers from Smith-Cotton, Warsaw, Cole Camp, and State Fair Community College rotate Saturdays and assist him. While the team mostly sees football players, the clinic is for any high school or college athlete with a serious but non-emergency orthopedic injury.

The clinic is open from 8 to 9:30 a.m. on Saturdays now through Oct. 28 and is located at Bothwell Peak Sport & Spine, 3222 W. 16th St. in Sedalia. No appointment is needed and students are seen on a first-come, first-served basis.

Students under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. If further care is required, the clinic will work with families to get the student to an appropriate health care clinician.
