Asheesh Bedi, M.D., is the Harold and Helen W. Gehring Early Career Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery and the Chief of Sports Medicine and Shoulder Surgery at the University of Michigan and the MedSport Program. He is also an adjunct assistant professor at the Hospital for Special Surgery/Weill Cornell Medical College. He is the Head Orthopaedic Physician for the University of Michigan, a team physician for the Detroit Lions, and the Head Orthopaedic Consultant for the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA).  He is also a consultant for the NFL and NHL Players Association and specializes in both arthroscopic and open surgery for athletic injuries of the shoulder, elbow, hip, and knee.

Dr. Bedi completed his undergraduate training at Northwestern University, where he graduated summa cum laude. He graduated from the University of Michigan Medical School with AOA recognition, and remained in Ann Arbor to pursue residency training in orthopaedic surgery at the University of Michigan. After completing his training, Dr. Bedi completed a two-year fellowship in sports medicine and shoulder surgery at the Hospital for Special Surgery/Weill Cornell Medical College in New York. He has also pursued additional dedicated training with Dr. Bryan Kelly in arthroscopic hip surgery for young athletes. While in New York, he was an assistant team physician for the New Jersey Nets professional basketball and New York Mets professional baseball organizations.

Dr. Bedi has also been recognized with the Leonard Marmor Outstanding Orthopaedic Resident Award, and the Hospital for Special Surgery Philip D. Wilson Award for Excellence in both 2008 and 2009 for his efforts in orthopaedic research and tendon-bone healing studies with Dr. Scott Rodeo. He is the winner of the 2010 Neer Award of the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (ASES) and a recipient of the 2010 Cabaud Award from the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM). He is a member of the prestigious Herodicus Society in Sports Medicine and has authored over 300 articles, chapters, and peer-reviewed publications on shoulder, elbow, knee, and hip injuries in athletes.
