Emily J.M. Monroe, M.D.
Specialties: 
Fellowship-Trained Sports Medicine Specialist, Shoulder & Elbow, Hip, Knee

“I am invested in helping my patients understand their problems and treatment options so that we can reach a decision that best fits their goals.”

As a fellowship-trained sports medicine specialist, I am dedicated to ensuring the best possible outcomes through comprehensive treatment and the latest evidence-based procedures, including fracture care, knee ligament reconstruction, shoulder arthroplasty, and minimally invasive joint arthroscopy. Practicing sports medicine allows me the distinct privilege of working with athletes of all ages and skill levels, which is why I’ve chosen to specialize in the field.

I understand the vast importance of having a healthy lifestyle, and when I’m not seeing patients, I enjoy being active with my husband and daughter through hiking, biking, and traveling.
