Research & Publications
Dr. Medvecky joined the faculty of Yale Orthopaedics 2001 after completing his subspecialty fellowship training in orthopaedic sports medicine, arthroscopy and reconstructive knee & shoulder surgery at Cincinnati Sportsmedicine & Orthopaedic Center. Under the direction of Frank Noyes, MD, an internationally recognized authority on complex knee injuries & conditions, he gained experience in diagnosing and treating the most complicated conditions that sports medicine surgeons will face. Prior to this training, he completed his internship and residency in Manhattan at NYU-Bellevue Hospital Medical Center and New York University-Hospital for Joint Diseases Orthopaedic Institute, respectively.
Since starting practice, he has also been an active participant in the Yale-New Haven Hospital Level-1 Orthopaedic Trauma Service, assisting in the care of poly-traumatized patients. His coupled interests in sports medicine and orthopaedic trauma have given him experience in the evaluation and treatment of complex knee and shoulder injuries and he utilizes both arthroscopic and open approaches to treat ligament, meniscus and articular cartilage injuries, based upon biomechanical and anatomical principles and proven clinical studies.
Dr. Medvecky serves as the Head Team Physician for both the WNBA Connecticut Sun and the New England Blackwolves men’s indoor lacrosse, both based at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT. He is also a consultant orthopaedist to the Yale University Athletic teams. He has also played an active role in regional athletic event coverage and continues to voluntarily serve the New Haven Road Race for over 15 years. He previously had served as Head Tournament physician for the WTA Connecticut Open tennis tournament, until its departure from New Haven in 2019.
Dr. Medvecky has been an active participant in graduate medical education and received the University Faculty Teaching Award for his contribution to the Yale-New Haven Hospital orthopaedic residency education. He has established an annual post-graduate medical education course to teach practicing primary care physicians how to best evaluate & treat musculoskeletal conditions seen in their practice. In his efforts to promote health and safety in youth and adult athletics, he also serves on the CT State Medical Society’s Committee on the Medical Aspects of Sports.
