Terrence Tsui, DO, is a sports medicine doctor who is board certified in primary care sports medicine and pediatrics.
Dr. Tsui decided to pursue a career in sports medicine because of his experiences as a college athlete. He played volleyball at the City College of New York and suffered many injuries which introduced him to the field of sports medicine as a patient. Recovering from his injuries was not enjoyable, but he appreciates the care he was given by his sports medicine team—athletic trainers, physical therapists, and sports medicine doctors. This inspired him to help future patients in the same position. Throughout his medical training, his love for the musculoskeletal system grew, and he continues to be fascinated by the capabilities of the human body as seen through athletics.
During his primary care sports medicine fellowship, Dr. Tsui gained valuable experience treating musculoskeletal conditions in patients from young to old. He also served as team physician for several high schools and as assistant team physician for numerous college athletic programs and professional teams. Dr. Tsui is passionate about restoring function to his patients, whether they are a high-level athlete or a worker injured on the job. He strives to work with them to form treatment plans towards the ultimate goal of getting them back to their activities.
Dr. Tsui specializes in concussion management and the non-operative management of bone, muscle, and joint conditions which include acute injuries, chronic overuse injuries, and degenerative disorders such as tendinopathies and arthritis. He is also trained in performing musculoskeletal ultrasound which allows him to immediately and accurately assess tendons, nerves, joints, ligaments, and muscles in real time in order to better diagnose and treat orthopedic conditions. This also helps optimize treatment as ultrasound-guided injections have been shown to be more accurate and effective and can be performed on hard to reach areas such as the hip joint.
Dr. Tsui also serves as the head team physician for Delaware State University Athletics. In this role, he provides various treatments aimed to prevent injuries and diagnoses and treats the injuries that occur. He also serves as a primary care physician available to all athletes in order to keep them healthy and performing at their best.
Dr. Tsui moved from New York City to Delaware with his wife, who is a Bayhealth primary care doctor. When he’s not working, he likes to stay active through biking, swimming, and weight training. He also loves outdoor activities including hiking, camping and fishing.
