Our Mission is to prevent, treat, rehabilitate, and research musculoskeletal and sport injuries among people of all ages and abilities.
Why We Exist
The Banff Sport Medicine Foundation (BSMF) was founded in 2017 by a group of like-minded individuals who believe there is a better way to deliver care in the area of orthopaedic sport medicine. Based on the extensive research and real-life experiences of a unique group of medical practitioners, the BSMF believes that early intervention and a full continuum approach to orthopedic care will deliver life changing benefits to patients and the community as a whole.
The primary objective of the Foundation is to promote core health care in Sport Medicine and Orthopaedics. We do this by:
- Promoting health in the area of Sport Medicine and Orthopaedics by:
- Conducting research into the prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal and sport injuries
- Providing training to medical students, orthopaedic surgery residents and surgical Fellows
- Advancing education by providing educational programming to the general public on the prevention and early treatment of musculoskeletal injuries.
What People Are Saying
"The success of my surgery furthered my interest in medicine. .... I felt compelled to learn more about orthopedics. Dr. Hiemstra was incredibly supportive and willing to bring me in to shadow when I mentioned it."
