Freddie Fu

Freddie Fu has been the chairman of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and the University of Pittsburgh Medical centre (UPMC) since 1998, where he is the David Silver Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery. He has been the head team physician for the University of Pittsburgh Department of Athletics since 1986.

Freddie is known worldwide for his pioneering surgical techniques to treat sports-related injuries to the knee and shoulder and his extensive scientific and clinical research in the biomechanics of such injuries. Because of his reputation, Freddie attracts both athletic and non-athletic patients from all over the globe.

He also was instrumental in the establishment of the Sports and Preventive Medicine Institute in 1985. Under Freddie's medical directorship, the facility - now called the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex - has grown into one of the world's largest, most comprehensive and highly regarded sports medicine clinical and research centres. In 2000, this world-class centre moved to its new home within the expansive, state-of-the-art UPMC Sports Performance Complex. The complex, partly designed by Freddie, also houses the indoor and outdoor training facilities of the University of Pittsburgh Panthers and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
