Aspetar provides a full service offering from injury prevention to injury management and performance improvement. The philosophy of Aspetar is to provide sportspeople with the clinical support, knowledge and facilities to maximise their training and competitive potential. This is achieved through tailored education programmes and support in areas of health including fitness assessment, nutrition, psychology, physiology and physical training.

The hospital strives to meet the highest international standards obtainable in its treatment of musculo-skeletal injuries and combines best-practices with the latest technology to guide athletes from diagnosis through rehabilitation and recovery. Our teams of dedicated researchers and physicians couple leading methodologies with state-of-the-art technology to provide athletes with total health, physical management and performance strategies. Aspetar is situated within Aspire Zone, a modern multi-purpose leisure and recreation complex that played host to the Doha 2006 Asian Games.

Sports physicians are uniquely qualified to understand the demands of sport on the athlete and the special requirements athletes have to be successful in their sport. Our sports physicians work closely with other departments at Aspetar and provide advice on how to prevent and manage injuries and medical conditions associated with sport and exercise to help athletes  return to exercise and optimise their level of performance.

Aspetar’s sports physicians are qualified to treat athletes from all types of sport. However, some physicians have experience and a special interest in specific sports, such as football, athletics, rugby and other football codes, disabled sports, tennis, handball, basketball, swimming, hockey, ballet / dance, gymnastics, boxing, cycling, netball, squash, badminton, volleyball, triathlon, Tae Kwon Do, as well as adventure sports (snow sports, sailing, kayaking, mountaineering, scuba diving and kite surfing).
