Lafayette's commitment to sports medicine and the overall health of its student-athletes is evidenced by the state of the art, cutting edge athletic training facility within the Allan P. Kirby Sports Center. The 2,500 square foot facility incorporates a physician exam room with office space for staff athletic trainers, a taping/preparatory area, and advanced primary therapy area, a hydrotherapy center with a seven-foot deep aquatic rehabilitation pool with a variable depth floor and an orthotic fabrication lab where corrective orthotics can be custom-designed and fabricated in-house.
Recently implemented was the utilization of an electronic injury database, which streamlined injury status updates not only among the athletic trainers and physicians, but to the coaches as well.
Director of Sports Medicine Matt Bayly and the athletic training staff provide care for all varsity and junior varsity student-athletes.
The sports medicine area is jointly led by Dr. Jeff Goldstein, the college's director of health services/team physician, and Dr. Carl B. Weiss, Jr., Lafayette's team orthopaedic surgeon. Dr. Weiss is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon, fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine and has his private practice at Coordinated Health Systems in Bethlehem, Pa. Injured student-athletes are evaluated at a bi-weekly injury clinic in the Sports Medicine area, where the physicians and athletic trainers are joined by Dr. Ray McCarroll, specializing in podiatric care and Dr. Steven Mazza, the team physiatrist.
