Jack Healey, MD
Dr. Healey’s own love of playing sports fuels his desire to treat and help return injured weekend warriors and athletes to the activities they are passionate about. As he was about to complete his internal medicine training at the Naval Hospital in San Diego, a rotation in orthopedics gave him the opportunity to “snap” a few wrist fractures back into place. He was hooked and changed the course of his medical career.
It can be difficult to see the devastating consequences of injury and the recovery from any necessary surgery. However, there is no greater reward for a surgeon than to see his patients recover, strive for their goals, and achieve their dreams.
Dr. Healey looks forward to helping you with the same enthusiasm whether you are a competitive player or a person whose love is tending a garden or walking your dog.
Dr. Healey pursued his medical training at Georgetown University with a full medical school scholarship from the United States Navy. He has served as assistant physician for the MLB Houston Astros, the NBA Houston Rockets, the University of Houston football team, and has served as the orthopedic team physician for Grand Valley State University since 1998. He has had a lifelong passion for playing all sports. Despite having hip surgery himself and diminishing skills, he still plays men’s league hockey and slogs through a few 5Ks a year. With three children, Dr. Healey and his wife now spend more time taking their kids to hockey, baseball, football, track, cross-country, cheer, and horseback riding activities.
