As a former varsity football player at Fairfield High School and a lifelong athlete, Dr. Adam Metzler has been around sports competition since childhood. It's no surprise that the talented physician chose sports medicine and orthopaedics as his specialty.
Dr. Metzler received his M.D. from the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, where he was valedictorian of his class. He subsequently completed his residency at UC, where he earned several awards and honors.
Before joining Commonwealth Orthopaedic Centers two years ago, Dr. Metzler completed a sports medicine fellowship and was a team physician for the University of Kentucky, working primarily with the UK men's football team. "It was an incredible experience that certainly helped me develop my practice and taught me how to manage the many facets involved in sports medicine, including the urgency that comes along with athletic injuries at the major collegiate level," he notes.
At Commonwealth, Dr. Metzler sees a wide range of patients, from high school athletes to older adults, and specializes in anterior cruciate and complex knee ligament reconstruction, meniscus repair, cartilage restoration surgery, patellofemoral instability, arthroscopic rotator cuff repair, shoulder instability, total knee replacement and fracture care.
At home, Dr. Metzler and his wife are parents to a son and two daughters. During his free time, the Ft. Wright resident enjoys wakeboarding, waterskiing, snow skiing, golfing and landscaping.
