Timothy S. Hamby, M.D.
While playing high school sports at Harrison High School, I sustained an injury to my shoulder that required surgery. My surgeon was Dr. Ahmet Percinel, a retired Tri-State Orthopaedics partner. My experience with Dr. Percinel and my passion for sports inspired me to pursue a career in the medical field, focusing on Orthopaedic Sports Medicine. After 15 years of medical school and training, I was happy to return to the Evansville area to practice at the place where my inspiration first began.
As an Orthopaedic surgeon with special training in Sports Medicine, I strive to provide the best care and treatment to local athletes and those that live an active lifestyle. I understand how important it is to my patients to recover successfully and return to the game as fast as possible. Being a team physician for North High School, Central High School, and the University of Evansville, I feel that I have been successful in achieving this passion. It is a true honor to serve these teams and help these athletes stay on their best game.
Having served as the Chairman of the Department of Orthopaedics at St. Mary’s Medical Center for the last decade, I also take particular pride in being able to serve all different types of people. Whether they are a weekend warrior or an active adult, my expertise in shoulder and knee care give me the ability and skills to treat a very wide range of patients. My availability to a broad array of individuals gives me the opportunity to achieve my goal of providing the upmost care to as many people in the community as I can, an aspect of my practice that is very gratifying.
In addition to my medical commitments, I enjoy coaching my kids' athletic teams, spending time with my family, collecting sports memorabilia, snow skiing, and watching IU sports.
