Dr. John Daigneault specializes in sports medicine, with a subspecialty in shoulders. He graduated from Holy Cross College with a B.S. in chemistry and received a Master’s in biochemistry from Boston College. He earned his medical degree from Albany Medical College and did his surgical residency at Yale University School of Medicine. He grew up in a family of athletes, which sparked his interest in sports medicine. He completed a fellowship in sports medicine at the renowned Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic in California, where he became fascinated with shoulder injuries and surgery.
“The shoulder joint is incredibly intricate,” he says. “[It has] tremendous mobility but is very dependent on the soft tissues.” Shoulder problems “can affect almost every aspect of daily life,” he adds. They can be challenging to rehabilitate, but Dr. Daigneault approaches problems in a scientific manner. “It’s the scientist in me,” he explains. “I also love to meet people and hear their stories. That’s the most interesting and best part of being a physician.”
