Ascendant Orthopedic Alliance’s very own, Dr. Brian Ratigan, talks about his transition from the football field to the operating room.  A former player for Notre Dame University and the Indianapolis Colts, Dr. Ratigan found his true calling as an orthopedic surgeon with Ascendant Orthopedic Alliance.  Here he is able to give back to the surrounding community and his collegiate alma mater, Notre Dame.  Ratigan, not only an orthopedic surgeon, also volunteers his time as the team doctor for Notre Dame Football.  Dr. Brian Ratigan, as described by ABC 57 News, is certainly an Irish Legend.  For more information on Dr. Ratigans background, please click the following video.

Ascendant Orthopedic Alliance was formed by joining the two leading providers serving North Central Indiana and Southwestern Michigan. South Bend Orthopaedics (SBO) and Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Center (OSMC) bring together the current seven office locations in South Bend, Elkhart, Mishawaka, Goshen, LaPorte, Middlebury and Nappanee to form Ascendant Orthopedic Alliance.
