TEAM DOCTORS

UConn Health Orthopedics and Sports Medicine has a long tradition of providing medical care for the UConn Huskies, professional sports teams, and other organizations. We are proud to help keep some of the world’s top athletes on the field, on the court, and in the game.

And the best news? You don't have to be a Husky to be seen by a Husky. We believe that everyone deserves world-class orthopedic care whether you're an elite athlete, weekend warrior, or you hurt your shoulder while mowing the lawn. Request an appointment with one of our team doctors today.
