Welcome

Brisbane Sports and Exercise Medicine Specialists (BSEMS) is a multidisciplinary specialist medical clinic that aims to provide for all your needs regarding staying fit and healthy, overcoming injury, and maintaining an active lifestyle. The practitioners at BSEMS are all highly trained professionals, and specialists in their fields.

Our focus is to offer a thorough assessment and establish a prompt and accurate diagnosis, and to guide you through your management, whether this requires counselling and advice, rehabilitation, or an operation.

Patients do not necessarily have to be “athletes” to benefit from assessment at BSEMS, rather those who are hoping to commence an exercise programme and require guidance in this area, or are interested in maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle and who for some reason are troubled by a musculoskeletal or medical condition.

At BSEMS we offer rapid access to the Specialist best suited to manage your problem.
