Dr. David Diduch has practiced orthopaedic surgery at UVA since 1995. His practice focuses on sports medicine, including knee and shoulder reconstruction. This includes arthroscopy, ACL reconstructions, meniscus and cartilage surgery, rotator cuff tears and shoulder instability, patellar instability, as well as the various lumps and bumps from sports. He cares for athletes of all ages, from adolescents through older persons who exercise for fitness. A large part of his time is spent caring for the athletes at UVA where he serves as the head orthopaedic team physician. As part of Dr. Diduch's practice in an academic institution, he is always teaching. Orthopaedic surgery residents, sports medicine fellows and medical students shadow him in the office and assist in surgery.

Dr. Diduch also serves as the vice chair of the department. An academic career also involves research, and numerous clinical trials are always available for interested persons through his office.

Dr. Diduch is married to Lynn and has three sons, all of whom are students at UVA. He loves playing golf with his boys and they also enjoy skiing and fly fishing in Montana.
