The Sports Medicine Team at Cardinal Newman:


Dr. Michael McDermott, MD

Dr. Michael McDermott is a board certified orthopaedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine and other orthopaedic problems, with emphasis on arthroscopic, complex reconstruction and minimally invasive procedures of the knee, hip and shoulder. Dr. McDermott has specialized training in reverse total shoulder as well as Mako Robotic assisted patient specific hip and knee replacement.

Dr. McDermott is co-director of The Sports Medicine Center at SRO. He is experienced in advanced arthroscopic and reconstructive surgery of the knee and shoulder, in addition to sports medicine, adult reconstructive, joint replacement, minimally invasive procedures, as well as general orthopaedic surgery. Dr. McDermott’s particular areas of interest include knee ligament reconstruction, shoulder stabilization and rotator cuff surgery, and he has developed a special interest in repair of the posterior cruciate ligament and multiple ligamentous injuries about the knee. He also applies his expertise in the treatment of young patients with damaged meniscus and articular cartilage, to include meniscal repair and transplantation, knee re-alignment surgery, and advanced repair and resurfacing techniques for articular cartilage injuries.

Dr. McDermott places high value on the role of the physical therapist in the treatment of his patients and has found that by maintaining a close, integrated relationship, personalized treatment protocols can be formulated that not only maximize surgical outcomes, but in many cases can eliminate the need for surgery altogether.

Dr. McDermott believes that all of his patients deserve the highest level of care and expertise, and is personally committed to patient satisfaction, extending the highest level of compassion and quality to every patient. This individualized personal attention allows him to work with each patient to determine which approach is best for them and ensure that all patients receive the highest level of orthopaedic care.
