When you're looking for quality medical care for yourself and your family, consider the experts who keep the Chicago Bulls on their feet.
The Chicago Bulls selected Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush to be their team physicians, and Rush University Medical Center is the preferred medical center for the team.
An orthopedics specialist and an internal medicine specialist attend each of the Bulls home games. The team physicians also provide care for visiting team players, coaches and referees.
"I wanted our players, staff and front office personnel to have the absolute best medical expertise available," said Fred Tedeschi, head athletic trainer for the Chicago Bulls. "Our team's health is paramount to success on the court and selecting a superior medical team was of the utmost importance. I am confident that the staff of Midwest Orthopaedics and Rush University Medical Center will provide our organization with the ultimate health care."
Brian Cole, MD, a sports medicine orthopedic surgeon, will serve as head team physician for the Bulls. His colleagues Kathleen M. Weber, MD, Bernard R. Bach, Jr., MD, Charles A. Bush-Joseph, MD, Mark Cohen, MD, John Fernandez, MD, George Holmes, Jr., MD, Simon Lee, MD, Shane Nho, MD, Gregory P. Nicholson, MD, Anthony A. Romeo, MD, and Nikhil Verma, MD, serve as co-team physicians. Cole, Bach, Bush-Joseph, Cohen, Fernandez, Holmes, Lee, Nho, Nicholson, Romeo and Verma are orthopedic surgeons. Weber is board-certified in internal medicine and sports medicine. Rounding out the medical team for the Bulls are Scott Palmer, MD, and William Kehoe, MD, internal medicine specialists at Rush. Team ophthalmologists are David Orth, MD, and Jack Cohen, MD.
"We're there to work with Fred Tedeschi to make sure the Bulls players are in optimal condition, and that if an injury does occur, we can provide an accurate, rapid diagnosis and initial care to minimize time off the court," Cole says.
Rush University Medical Center's orthopedics program has repeatedly been ranked higher than any other orthopedics program in Illinois according to U.S. News & World Report's "America's Best Hospitals" listing. Rush also has one of the top sports medicine residency and fellowship training programs in the country.
