    Rajiv H. Tailor, MD, is Board Certified in Sports Medicine and Family Medicine. Dr. Tailor graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania with a Bachelor of Science degree in Neuroscience and Chemistry. He subsequently received a medical degree from Ross University School of Medicine in North Brunswick, New Jersey and completed a residency program in Family Medicine at Sacred Heart Hospital/Temple University in Allentown, Pennsylvania where he was elected as Chief Resident. He then completed a fellowship in Sports Medicine at Eisenhower Medical Center with didactic and ultrasound certification from the University of California, San Diego. Dr. Tailor is the Medical Director of the Eisenhower Sports Medicine Clinic.

    Dr. Tailor has always had a passion for medicine.  “I have been long drawn to medicine given my thirst for complexity coupled with the ability to improve the lives of others.”  Family medicine training initially allowed him to understand the field of medicine from a broad-based perspective.  “I enjoy the personal satisfaction that establishing relationships with patients brings.”

    Sports medicine became a growing interest as Dr. Tailor participated in sports throughout his life and sustained a football injury requiring shoulder surgery while in college. “After my recovery I spent time shadowing my orthopedic surgeon.  I came to the realization that I wanted to focus on musculoskeletal and orthopedic conditions without having to perform surgery” comments Dr. Tailor. 

    The Eisenhower Sports Medicine Clinic is a non-operative orthopedics clinic seeing patients with any musculoskeletal condition or injury—not just sports-related. “Sports Medicine is a fascinating subspecialty as it allows me to address injury and disease of the entire musculoskeletal system from acute injury to chronic processes such as osteoarthritis,” states Dr. Tailor.  “Most of the advancements in medicine serve to reduce the need for surgical intervention; hence I saw the non-surgical aspects of Sports Medicine very appealing.”  

    The Eisenhower Sports Medicine Clinic utilizes the most up to date diagnostic tools and evidence based treatment modalities to not only relieve discomfort, but to assist in the healing process for long term relief.
