Free Fall Sports Exams Offered at University Orthopedics

University Orthopedics offered Free Fall Sports Exams for the 22nd year in a row on Saturday, August 3rd, 2019 from 8am-12pm at the Kettle Point location in East Providence and at 345 Valley Road in Middletown. Athletes from Elementary School, Middle School, High School, and those preparing for college were invited to the pre-participation screening exams to ensure they were physically fit for their sport in the fall and to possibly catch rare medical conditions and hopefully prevent significant injury. 

More than 40 University Orthopedics staff members volunteered their time to provide 230 FREE exams, including Dr. Brett Owens and Dr. Peter Kriz!

See coverage from NBC 10 speaking with Sports Medicine Surgeon Dr. Brett Owens about the success of the day.
