The Texas Society of Sports Medicine (TSSM) is a statewide organization of orthopaedic surgeons specializing in sports medicine, team physicians, athletic trainers, coaches and physician assistants.  TSSM members work closely with many other sports medicine specialists and clinicians to improve the identification, prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of sports injuries.

The TSSM works in concert with the Texas Orthopaedic Association (TOA), the Southwest Athletic Trainers' Association (SWATA) and other sports medicine societies nationwide.  The Society continues to sponsor college scholarships administered by the SWATA.

The Texas Society of Sports Medicine invites you to join your colleagues across the state by becoming a member.  Dues your colleagues have contributed to TSSM are used to educate our members through seminars and scholarships.  Please help us keep sports medicine in Texas strong. TSSM Membership Application Form pdf.
