T. Sean Lynch specializes in the nonoperative and operative treatment of hip and knee disorders in athletes of all levels at ColumbiaDoctors Orthopedics. He is an expert in hip surgery and knee ligament reconstruction with minimally invasive and arthroscopic techniques.

A native of Omaha, Nebraska, he received a B.S. in Biology from Georgetown University as well as his Doctor of Medicine degree from the Georgetown University School of Medicine.

He recently completed a sports medicine fellowship at the Cleveland Clinic. He has been the recipient of the prestigious Herodicus Society North American Traveling Fellowship, working with knee articular cartilage specialist and hip arthroscopists across the United States. He has been actively involved in research throughout his medical career and has published numerous scientific and clinical articles in the area of hip and knee reconstruction.

He is particularly interested in clinical outcomes after these procedures and has recently been selected to participate in the AAOS/Orthopaedic Research Education Fund (OREF)/Orthopaedic Research Society (ORS) Clinician Scholar Career Development Program. He is committed to providing the highest quality of medical care and seeks the best outcome for his patients.
