More than a few football injuries of his own landed Matthew T. Hummel, M.D., in the doctor's office while he was a student athlete. So, after receiving his undergraduate degree from Centre College and his medical degree from the University of Kentucky, he pursued what seemed natural to him: a career in orthopaedic surgery.
His surgical residency at Greenville Hospital System in Greenville, South Carolina, and subsequent fellowship in joint replacement at the University of Louisville, led Dr. Hummel to specialize in the minimally invasive surgical techniques he uses today. "It's very satisfying," he says of the ability to help heal patients' broken bones and damaged joints.
