John T. Heinrich, MD

John T. Heinrich, MD is a board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon and sports medicine specialist with unique experience in arthroscopic surgery of the hip. A recognized expert in this advanced, minimally invasive procedure, Dr. Heinrich was on the forefront in bringing arthroscopic surgery to area patients with hip pain. Annually, he performs more hip arthroscopies than any other orthopaedic surgeon in the region, now more than 200 per year. Since 1998, Dr. Heinrich has trained other orthopedic surgeons in the technique of hip arthroscopy as an Instructor at the Orthopedic Learning Center for the Arthroscopy Association of North America. He is also actively involved in clinical research related to the arthroscopic treatment of non-arthritic hip pain.

Patients enjoy his friendly, open and personalized approach to care. He encourages questions and always takes the time to get to know his patients and thoroughly understand their concerns.

Since opening his practice in 1994, Milwaukee’s three major professional sports teams have relied upon Dr. Heinrich’s knowledge and experience in sports medicine. From 2002 through 2008, he served as the head team orthopaedic physician for the Milwaukee Bucks — and he continues as an associate team physician for the basketball team today. Previously, he also served as team physician for the Milwaukee Brewers Baseball Club as well as the Milwaukee Admirals Hockey Team.

Dr. Heinrich earned his medical degree from the University of Wisconsin Medical School in Madison, Wisconsin. He completed his residency in orthopaedic surgery at the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics. This was immediately followed by a fellowship in orthopaedic sports medicine at the Southern California Center for Sports Medicine located in Long Beach, California.
