Dr. David Clare, MD, son of Dr. Patrick & Linda Clare, joins his father and colleagues at Nebraska Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine, P.C. to form Nebraska's premier Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Team. The recent upstart of Dr. D. Clare's orthopaedic and sports medicine practice reaches a wide gamut of orthopaedic patient care needs. Dr. D. Clare's experience as a collegiate athlete compliments his sports medicine fellowship training, and with his extensive fellowship training in adult reconstruction of the hip and total joint replacement enables him to care for a large spectrum of patients, from young athletic patients, to patients affected by conditions from advanced years.
