What to expect
Your first visit to the Female Athlete Clinic will last a full morning (3-4 hours). We recommend you bring snacks and items to keep you occupied during down times.
It is helpful to the Female Athlete Clinic team if you can bring any previous records from other doctors or specialists that relate to your current concerns, such as growth curves, labs or radiology tests.
Our clinic is held at the Sports Medicine Center at Village West, our comprehensive rehabilitation and training facility in Kansas City, Kan. View a 360o interactive map of the Sports Medicine Center at Village West.
During your first visit, you’ll meet with all four of our team’s specialists individually. They will ask you questions about your current problem or concern, training and activity schedules, injury history, nutrition and eating habits, menstrual cycles, mental health history and well-being. They will also screen for any other possible disorders.
The team may order lab tests or imaging to better understand your symptoms and current health.
Before you leave, your care team will discuss their findings with you and talk about a plan of care going forward.
