Sports medicine and shoulder surgery

Dr. Nugent, provides comprehensive orthopedic care to patients of all ages, with a special interest in Sports medicine and shoulder surgery.

Philosophy of Care

“I encourage each patient to take an active role in their treatment and medical decisions. I believe in exhausting all non-surgical means first, before recommending any surgical course of treatment. When surgery is needed, I feel that the decision is ultimately in the patients hands. We use the most current, up to date techniques in surgery, optimizing outcome while minimizing time for recovery.”

Dr. Nugent has acted as a team physician for multiple high school, collegiate, and professional sports teams, including Arizona State University, the Colorado Rockies, Greenville Drive (Red Sox affiliate), and North Greenville University, among others. He is an admitted sports enthusiast who enjoys long-distance running, basketball, baseball, football, and playing any sport with his three young children. He was a collegiate rugby player at the University of Utah and remains involved in the game. Above all else, Dr. Nugent loves spending time with his wonderful wife and kids.
