“Sports medicine is our specialty at Beacon,” says Beacon Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine’s Peter Cha, M.D. “And because of our experience and expertise, we are privileged to be the official sports medicine providers to high schools across the region, as well as club, college, and professional teams.”
Beacon Physicians Serve as Team Doctors for the Following Area High Schools
Peter Cha, M.D. (Medical Director at Ursuline Academy, Seven Hills, Cincinnati Country Day, Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy and Lakota East high schools). Tim Kremchek, M.D. (Medical Director at Moeller, Indian Hill, Kings, Wyoming, Mt. Notre Dame, Madeira, Clinton-Massie, Wilmington, and Lakota West high schools). David Argo, M.D. (Medical Director at Oak Hills East Central, South Dearborn, and Lawrenceburg high schools). Robert Burger, M.D. (Medical Director at LaSalle High School).
Beacon’s origins are rooted in building a practice that focuses on providing the best care to athletes, says Dr. Kremchek, who cofounded Beacon 26 years ago.
“Our team at Beacon understands athletes, including the sports and positions they play,” says Dr. Kremchek, who played baseball at Indian Hill and Wittenberg University. “We understand what drives them and appreciate what they are going through. We help them both physically and mentally and know what it takes to get them back on the field.”
Dr. Argo grew up playing multiple sports and was a member of the soccer team at Vanderbilt University. “When I was playing sports, the only doctors I ever saw were orthopaedic surgeons,” Dr. Argo says. “So when I went to medical school, I knew I wanted to take care of athletes. I wanted to get people who were as intense and athletic as I was back on the field after an injury. The warm and fuzzy for me is that if someone is injured, I get to do something physically to make them better.”
Sports is also in the background of Dr. Burger, who co-founded Beacon with Dr. Kremchek. A football standout at his alma mater LaSalle, Dr. Burger walked on to the football team at Notre Dame, where he played on the 1977 national championship team with the legendary Fighting Irish quarterback Joe Montana.
“One of the reasons we are able to provide such outstanding care to high school athletes is the integrated services we provide our patients at Beacon,” Dr. Burger says. “The concept of consolidating physical therapy, MRIs, and even an ambulatory surgery center in the same location provides a real synergy that our patients want and appreciate.”
