South Bend Orthopaedics and the University of Notre Dame: A Partnership Built on a Tradition of Excellence

The University of Notre Dame, nestled in the heart of South Bend, Indiana, is renowned for its storied history, rich traditions, and unparalleled commitment to excellence in academics and athletics. One element that has contributed to the success of Notre Dame’s athletic program over the years (at least we like to think so!) is its long-standing partnership with South Bend Orthopaedics. Our practice has been helping to keep the Fighting Irish fighting since 1949.

For over 70 years, South Bend Orthopaedics has been a trusted partner of the university, helping Notre Dame’s student-athletes stay in peak physical condition and recover from injuries on the field, court, and track. From sprained ankles and torn ligaments to fractures and concussions, our sports medicine doctors have seen it all—and many are former Fighting Irish athletes themselves! SBO’s dedication to the health and well-being of Notre Dame’s student-athletes has earned us the trust and respect of the entire South Bend community. This enduring partnership exemplifies the values of teamwork, perseverance, and excellence that both institutions hold dear, and it continues to strengthen with each passing year.
