LEXINGTON, Ky. (June 29, 2004) -- Those seeking treatment for sports-related injuries in Georgetown now will be able to receive care closer to home. The University of Kentucky Sports Medicine Center has opened a satellite clinic in Georgetown, Ky.

Tim Wilson, M.D., assistant professor, Division of Orthopaedic Surgery and Sports Medicine, Department of Surgery, UK College of Medicine, began seeing patients at the Georgetown Specialty Clinic on June 14, 2004.

“This provides an excellent opportunity for UK Sports Medicine to better serve the surrounding area,” said Sheri McNew, A.T.C., director of outreach, UK Sports Medicine.  “Not only can patients see our physician in Georgetown, but if surgery is needed, Dr. Wilson can perform the surgery at Georgetown Community Hospital.”
