In brief: Yes

Yes, there is a board certification for sports medicine, available to many specialties (family practice, physiatry/rehabilitation medicine, etc).
There is a separate subspecialty certification for orthopedic sports medicine available to orthopedic surgeons who complete a sports fellowship program.

An orthopedic surgeon may have substantial experience and/or fellowship training in order to obtain a certificate of additional qualification.
Some excellent orthopedic sports medicine physicians.

In brief: Yes

Yes, there are sports medicine orthopaedists.
It is an official subspecialty of orthopaedics. There are also sports medicine physiatrists (non-surgical) who specialize in athletic/musculoskeletal injuries. There are many drs that are board certified in sports medicine. Look for this.
