    Collapse overview
    Dr. DeBerardino is a nationally renowned orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in sports medicine and arthroscopic surgery of the knee, hip and shoulder. Dr. DeBerardino has a special interest in the management of complex injuries of the knee and shoulder and arthroscopic management of hip impingement in young active adults. Dr. DeBerardino recently moved to UConn after spending the last eight years at the United States Military Academy where he was the Head Team Physician for the collegiate athletic teams and Director of the Sports Medicine Fellowship program. Dr. DeBerardino is now a team physician for UConn athletic teams including football and the men’s and women’s basketball programs, as well as for the UFL Hartford Colonials football team.

    Dr. DeBerardino is author of over 40 scientific articles on ligament, tendon and cartilage injuries of the knee and shoulder. He has won several prestigious awards including the AOSSM NCAA Research Award; the Aircast Award for Clinical Science Presentation; and the AOSSM-ESSKA European Traveling Fellowship. He is a member of many national and international professional societies including: the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, the International ACL Study Group and the prestigious Herodicus Society.

    Dr. DeBerardino also has a special interest in procedures to preserve the hip and knee joints. He is a faculty member in the Center for Joint Preservation and Replacement. He has a special interest in the use of hip arthroscopic procedures to avoid the development of arthritis and osteotomies and cartilage repair procedures to limit degeneration of the knee joint.
