Dr William Meyers
William C. Meyers has dedicated 25 years to pioneering the diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation and prevention of core muscle injuries (also known as athletic pubalgia or sports hernia). Treating patients with abdominal or groin injuries stemmed from a unique experience in the 1980s with the U.S. National Soccer Team, Miami Dolphins, and various Olympic athletes. Since then, he has developed a number of variants of the surgical repair for core muscle injuries (athletic pubalgia/sports hernia) and their relationship to the ball and socket hip joint. He has evaluated over 15,000 patients, including professional players from the National Football League, National Hockey League, National Basketball Association, Major League Baseball, Major League Soccer, Professional Tennis, Professional Golf, Professional Bull Riding, Swimming, Olympic Track and Field, collegiate and recreational athletes.
Dr. Meyers received his B.A. from Harvard University and his M.D. from Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons. He completed his residency and fellowship at Duke University, subsequently serving 14 years as Chief for various divisions of surgery. Prior to moving to Philadelphia, Dr. Meyers was Chairman of Surgery and Surgeon-in-Chief at University of Massachusetts-Worcester. He served as Professor, Chairman of Surgery and Senior Associate Dean at Drexel University College of Medicine from January 2001 until November of 2010. Dr. Meyers has been funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and has received various industry grants for research. He has authored and co-authored over 300 peer reviewed medical publications, and has authored chapters and edited texts. He also has authored two books.
