Northside Hospital announced it has added a host of new physicians, including one to its Orthopedic Institute Sports Medicine that will serve the Cumming area.
Dr. Kellie K. Middleton, a Norcross native who was an all-conference softball player at Notre Dame and all-American player at the University of Georgia, will provide “advanced, comprehensive orthopedic and sports medicine care, specializing in complex shoulder, elbow and knee” issues, according to a press released.
Middleton graduated early from Notre Dame as a double major in biology and psychology, then transferred to Georgia where she received her Masters of Public Heath degree.
Middleton then worked in public policy in Berkley, California, while also playing professional fastpitch softball before going to medical school.
Middleton trained at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, New York, during which time she helped take care of the city’s NBA and WNBA teams, the New York Knicks and the New York Liberty. Middleton also served as an assistant physician for the Woodland Hills High School football team in Pittsburgh.
Middleton will see patients at Northside locations in Cumming, Lawrenceville and Peachtree Corners.
