Kevin Shea, MD

  • Kevin Gerald Shea

Health care is a team sport, and I work with families and patients to help them develop a team for their recovery and improvement. Patients and families are at the core of this team, and their 'teammates' include office staff, athletic trainers, physical therapists, coaches, teachers and more.

I am very fortunate to work in a healing profession and to be part of a process that improves the lives of our patients and families. It is a privilege to get to know patients and families and be part of the community.

Before going to medical school, I worked as a teacher. I was planning to be a high school teacher and football, soccer and wrestling coach. My high school biology teacher convinced me to become a physician and to work with athletes, much like a coaching. Specializing in orthopedics has allowed me to continue to teach, work with athletes, and watch kids and teens grow and develop. It is a great privilege to care for my patients, and I continue to learn from them every day.
