Team doctors for the University of Maryland Terrapins are treating patients at community practice just three blocks south of UM campus
You might have seen them on the sidelines during University of Maryland football games or rushing to the aid of a player injured on the basketball court or soccer field. Now the doctors who care for all of the Terrapins athletic teams, including the NCAA champion women’s basketball team, are bringing their sports medicine expertise to residents of the Washington, D.C., area.
University of Maryland Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine has opened a full-service office at 4321 Hartwick Road in College Park. Patients who come to the 4,000-square-foot office, three blocks south of the University of Maryland campus, have access to a wide range of orthopaedic services as well as on-site imaging and physical therapy. The clinic, which has three large exam rooms, is on the first floor, and there is ample parking.
“Our new office provides a convenient location for area residents to be evaluated and treated for all types of orthopaedic and sports-related injuries,” says Craig H. Bennett, M.D., chief of sports medicine at the University of Maryland Medical Center and team orthopaedic surgeon for the University of Maryland Terrapins athletic teams. “This office will give us a strong presence in the Washington area.”
Dr. Bennett, who is also an assistant professor of orthopaedics at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, adds, “We offer a multidisciplinary approach to care with specialists from orthopaedics, radiology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, and physical therapy working together to offer patients the best treatment options.”
University of Maryland Orthopaedics has three other full-service locations in the Baltimore metropolitan area: One Texas Station Court in Timonium, Kernan Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation Hospital in Woodlawn and the University of Maryland Medical Center in downtown Baltimore. Fellowship-trained physicians, who are all on the faculty of the University of Maryland School of Medicine, care for patients with the full range of conditions, including injuries of the spine, foot, ankle, knee, shoulder and hand.
Dr. Bennett and James C. Dreese, M.D., an orthopaedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine who is an assistant team physician for the Terrapins, will have office hours at the new College Park office on Mondays and Wednesdays.
