Equine Sports Medicine Complex

“It’s a facility that makes perfect sense,” says Dr. José García-López, associate professor of Equine Sports Medicine and Surgery and director of the Issam M. Fares Equine Sports Medicine Program. “We have always offered excellent care, but this new facility will allow us to do more to meet a growing caseload,” he says. “It’s a facility that will translate into improved care for our patients and strengthen our teaching and residency training. We’ve realized the need for an arena for a long time, and now we have the opportunity to take the next natural step in our evolution.”
