In memory of Dr. David L. MacIntosh

The sport medicine clinic at the University of Toronto is named after Dr. David L. MacIntosh, a pioneer in the orthopaedic surgery. Dr. MacIntosh had a career of over 50 years. He developed several landmark procedures that helped thousands of people with arthritis and injuries to bones and tendons. Dr. MacIntosh began to work with young athletes in the 1950's at Hart House. He was team physician for the varsity football and hockey teams for 25 years. As a teaching professor he deeply influenced three generations of medical students and surgical trainees. The clinic was renamed in honour of Dr. MacIntosh in 1990.

Donations to the clinic can be made online and through the Faculty's office of Alumni Affairs and Advancement.
