MSU Athletics Partnering With Big Name In Orthopaedics

Eagle Empire getting new help on weekly basis in training room.
Morehead State University Athletics has announced a sports medicine partnership  with Dr. Timothy Kremchek and his staff at Beacon Orthopaedics in Cincinnati. Dr. Kremchek will serve as MSU's senior orthopedic consultant.

Dr. Kremchek and his staff of fellows will provide weekly training room visits to MSU for evaluations and to care for student-athletes in post-operation status. In addition, the University will have full access to the services provided at Beacon's Summit Woods facility in Ohio, which includes surgical capabilities.

The Beacon staff will work closely with Dr. Thomas Fossett of St. Claire Regional Medical Center in Morehead, who will remain in his role as  MSU's team physician.

"Having worked with Dr. Kremchek for the last 15 years dating back to my time with the Cincinnati Reds, I know the level of commitment and care he will provide us is second to none,"  said Chris Lapole, assistant athletic director and director of sports medicine.

"Having Dr. Fossett and Dr. Kremchek working together gives us what I believe is one of the best orthopedic teams in Division I athletics. Dr. Kremchek and his medical team provide care to the highest level of professional athletes in all of the four major sports, plus Olympians, and we are honored now that he will provide that same level of care to the student-athletes in all of our sports."

Dr.  Kremchek is in his 18th season as the Cincinnati Reds medical director and chief orthopaedic surgeon. A 1986 graduate of the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, he completed his orthopaedic residency at Tufts University in Boston.  In 1993, he completed a one-year Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Fellowship at the Alabama Sports Medicine Institute in Birmingham under the direction of Dr. James Andrews and Dr. Lawrence Lemak. He began private practice in Cincinnati in 1993.

"This  is a wonderful partnership with Morehead State Athletics that makes  sense at this time," Dr. Kremchek said. "Working with Dr. Fossett, I know our staff at Beacon can provide Morehead State student-athletes with the best care possible. We have a wide range of specialists and fellows who work alongside me, so whatever care is necessary, there is someone on our staff with the knowledge and expertise to provide the best medical services and advice for these athletes."

Beacon provides medical services to the Cincinnati Reds and several other colleges and high schools in the southwestern Ohio, southeastern Indiana and northern Kentucky area.

Lapole is in his third season on the  sports medicine staff at MSU. He was promoted to assistant athletic director and director of sports medicine in August 2012 after serving as assistant athletic trainer in 2011-12.

The sports medicine staff also  includes Kelly Mason, David Anderson, and several graduate assistants and students.
