The Department of Orthopaedics of the University at Buffalo is comprised of physicians from western New York's largest orthopaedic practice, UBMD Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine. The Department proudly maintains a tradition of excellence dating from the first orthopaedic course offered at the University in 1886.
UBMD Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine offers complete care of all orthopaedic and musculoskeletal conditions; our board certified and fellowship trained physicians have the experience and expertise to handle the entire range of bone and joint problems, resulting in leading edge evaluation and treatment for our patients. We serve as team doctors for the Buffalo Bills, Buffalo Sabres, Buffalo Bandits, UB Bulls, ECC Kats, and the Buffalo State Bengals.
