Emily Monroe

  • Sports medicine surgeon Emily J.M. Monroe, M.D. of Heartland Orthopedic Specialists was part of six nationally and internationally published articles in peer-reviewed surgical and medical journals since December 2018. Her three most recent co-authored studies showcase rare and common orthopedic conditions that require research, data and outcome tracking to further the science and techniques of orthopedic surgery and sports medicine. She recently was part of several teams that investigated techniques in ACL repair for children, hip surgery and treating bone tumors. In April, two of Monroe’s co-authored articles were published nationally in The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery and The American Journal of Sports Medicine. Also in 2019, she co-authored an article published in Arthroscopy: The Journal of Arthroscopic and Related Surgery. As a fellowship-trained sports medicine surgeon, Monroe has received the highest level of sub-specialized academic and clinical education in orthopedics. She is a graduate of the University of Louisville School of Medicine and completed her residency in orthopedic surgery at the McGaw Medical Center of Northwestern University. She later underwent additional specialty training through a yearlong sports medicine fellowship at the University of California San Francisco.
