Bone and Joint Institute – About
By bringing together experts from multiple specialties into our 52,000 square foot facility, we can collaboratively treat patients with effective results.
Penn State Sports Medicine, located in State College, is also part of the Penn State Health Bone and Joint Institute. We care for all Penn State athletes, as well as patients throughout central Pennsylvania.
Physicians work together to provide sports medicine care to the Hershey Bears Hockey Team, Harrisburg Senators Baseball Team, Penn State varsity athletes, and local colleges and high schools.
Highly trained physicians
Each physician has pursued formal fellowship training and developed subspecialty interests in addition to general orthopaedics.
Strong focus on research
Our researchers study a wide variety of musculoskeletal disorders including arthritis, osteoporosis, biomechanics of implants, mechanisms of fracture healing, and cancer of the musculoskeletal system.
Research on bone and joint conditions is conducted through the work of the Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation department at Penn State Hershey. Learn more about our research.
