Rothman Professor and Chairman of the Department of Orthopaedics, and Professor of Neurosurgery at Thomas Jefferson University and Hospitals. “The BIG EAST tournament is synonymous with New York City so we felt it is was a good opportunity to further introduce ourselves to the fans who live and work in the area. We look forward to working with the conference and its member institutions to provide the student-athletes with the best orthopaedic care possible.”
“This is a perfect partnership for both organizations,” said Anthony A. Romeo, MD, Chief of Orthopaedics, Rothman Orthopaedic Institute – New York. “Rothman Orthopaedics has a long history of providing care to top athletes everywhere.
