Congratulations to Dr. Wendell Heard on earning the Subspecialty Certificate in Orthopaedic Sports Medicine!

We would like to congratulate Dr. Wendell Heard for earning the Subspecialty Certificate in Orthopaedic Sports Medicine from the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery. The Subspecialty Certificate in Orthopaedic Sports Medicine is for those Board certified orthopaedic surgeons who have demonstrated qualifications in sports medicine beyond those expected of other orthopaedic surgeons by virtue of additional training, a practice characterized by a majority of cases in sports medicine, and contributions to this field.

 Dr. Heard is currently in his 4th year of full-time practice at Tulane.  He completed a one year fellowship in Sports Medicine at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago back in 2012.  Prior to that, Dr. Heard did his residency at The Warren Alpert School of Medicine of Brown University from 2006-2010, after completing Medical School here at Tulane University School of Medicine.  He now specializes in Orthopaedic Surgery and Orthopaedic Sports Medicine, with a particular focus on knee injuries and knee arthroscopy.  Dr. Heard practices Uptown New Orleans at the Tulane Institute of Sports Medicine.  To read more about Dr. Heard, click here.
