Matthew T. Provencher BS, MD
Dr. Matthew Provencher, Chief of Sports Medicine Service at Massachusetts General Hospital and Medical Director and Head Team Physician of last year's National Football League's Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots, is joining the staff at The Steadman Clinic and Steadman Philippon Research Institute. Dr. Provencher will focus on treatment and rehabilitation of injuries to the knee and shoulder. The announcement was made today by Dr. Marc Philippon, Managing Partner of The Steadman Clinic and Co-Chairman of the Steadman Philippon Research Institute.
Dr. Provencher completed his work with the Patriots on Jan. 24 when New England's hope of a Super Bowl repeat ended with a loss in the AFC Championship game to the Broncos in Denver. Perhaps it was only fitting that his final game with the Patriots was within driving distance of his new home in Vail at The Steadman Clinic.
Dr. Provencher graduated in 1993 with highest honors from the United States Naval Academy and was the Secretary of the Navy Distinguished Graduate, where he was an all-American rower. He earned his medical degree with Honors from Dartmouth Medical School in 1998. He has served as Chief of Sports Medicine at The Massachusetts General since April 2013 and has been with the Patriots for the last two seasons. He also serves as a Professor of Surgery and Orthopaedics at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS) and is a Visiting Professor at The Harvard Medical School.
