For 25 years, Camden Yards has been a place for sports in Baltimore. Now it’s a place for sports medicine, too.

The University of Maryland School of Medicine opened an outpatient orthopaedic and sports medicine practice at the old B&O Warehouse, which serves as the right field backdrop for Oriole Park.

The clinical practice, operated by University of Maryland Faculty Physicians, Inc., is located in newly renovated space on the fifth floor of the warehouse at 351 W. Camden Street.

The practice was established to treat injuries to the spine, hands, knees and joints and other musculoskeletal problems. It has 12 exam rooms, a physical therapy studio and two X-ray rooms. The office space has been renovated to show off the beauty of the 1905 building, with views of the ballpark as well as the harbor and downtown.

Hours of operation for the B&O Warehouse location are Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday hours may eventually be added. Physical and occupational therapy also will be available.

“We’re very pleased to open this new outpatient orthopaedic and sports medicine practice at Camden Yards,” said Andrew Pollak, a professor and chairman of the orthopaedics department at the School of Medicine, and Chief of Orthopaedics at the University of Maryland Medical System.

“We couldn’t have found a better location. Not only is Camden Yards only blocks away from the University of Maryland, Baltimore, and the University of Maryland Medical Center and its Shock Trauma Center but it is also centrally located for many people who work in downtown Baltimore.”

This is the fourth outpatient setting where University of Maryland orthopaedic surgeons see patients, along with sites in Timonium, College Park and Columbia. Doctors also see patients at the University of Maryland Medical Center’s University and Midtown campuses in Baltimore, at the University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Medical Center in Bel Air, and at the University of Maryland Rehabilitation and Orthopaedic Institute near Woodlawn.
