    Team Doctors

    Orthopaedic & Neurosurgery Specialists (ONS) has become an invaluable resource for Sacred Heart Athletics in the last few years. While supporting Sacred Heart’s athletic trainer with orthopaedic and neurological consults, speaking to our athletes and parents about important health topics, and helping to implement ImPACT testing in 2010, the doctors at ONS always manage to accommodate our athletes in a timely manner. Our team doctors at ONS include Dr. Gloria Cohen and Dr. Katie Vadasdi, with neurological support from Dr. Mark Camel. 

    The Sacred Heart Greenwich-ONS alliance provides professional medical support to the Sacred Heart Athletic Department. Sacred Heart families are under no obligation to be seen by an ONS physician. However, if the family chooses to see the doctors at ONS, the Sacred Heart athletic trainer and ONS physicians will stay connected throughout the evaluation, treatment and rehabilitation process of that student-athlete.

    Student-Athlete Return-to-Play Policy

    Should a student-athlete participating in Sacred Heart Athletics be seen by a physician for an injury or ailment that may affect her ability to participate in games or practice, a note from the physician stating the student-athlete is Cleared-to-Play must be presented to the SH athletic trainer before the athlete can return to play in practice or competition. This policy applies to athletes referred by the SH athletic trainer or self-referred. 

    A release note from the original doctor who treated the initial injury and suspended participation is required before the athlete can return to play in the current or future seasons. 

    For the protection of the athlete and the School, verbal clearance or a written waiver from the parent/guardian is not acceptable.
