Dr. Robert Quinn

Welcome to the Department of Orthopaedics

Introduction from the Chair, Robert H. Quinn, MD, Professor and Chairman


It is an honor and a privilege to lead this storied Department which holds such a high level of distinction in the modern era of orthopaedic surgery. Founded by Charles Rockwood, Jr. MD in 1966 as a Division of General Surgery, Department status was attained in 1983. Under Dr. Rockwood’s leadership, the Department has fostered the development of many leaders in orthopaedic surgery, and a few legends including Dr. Rockwood himself, Dr. Kaye Wilkins, Dr. David Green, Dr. Jesse DeLee, and Dr. James Heckman, to name only a few. The textbook and teaching contributions of Drs. Rockwood, Wilkins, and Green have defined injury treatment from accident scene to recovery for over a generation.

Matthew Murray is a doctor of orthopedics sports medicine at UT Health Science Center San Antonio. He trained under Dr. James Andrews, who treats professional athletes for ACL and shoulder injuries.

Beyond the playing field

Matthew Murray was a high school football player who recovered from an ACL injury to become a University of Texas Longhorn. That experience sparked his desire to become an orthopaedic surgeon who helps other injured athletes of all ages move again.
