John Polousky

Dr. John Polousky is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon who is certified in the
subspecialty of sports medicine. He is fellowship-trained in pediatric orthopedics and has completed further post-residency training in orthopedic sports medicine.

Dr. Polousky earned his medical degree from the University of Southern California in 2000 and completed a residency in orthopedic surgery at The Cleveland Clinic Foundation 2005. He then completed a pediatric orthopedic surgery fellowship at The Children’s Hospital Colorado in 2006, a pediatric orthopedic surgery mini-fellowship in limb deformity surgery at the International Center for Limb Lengthening at Baltimore’s Sinai Hospital and additional training in orthopedic sports medicine at the University of Colorado in 2007.

He has been working at The Children’s Hospital at Plano for the last past year and came to Plano due to his interest in the sport medicine section of the hospital, as well as the potential for growth in that field as well. He greatly enjoys working at The Children’s Hospital and looks forward to its growth.

Dr. Polousky is a former Division I collegiate athlete. He was a four-year letter winner, two-time academic all-conference and honorable mention all-conference center at Colorado State University.

Dr. Polousky is actively involved in research. He has published numerous articles and book chapters on topics in pediatric orthopedics and sports medicine. He currently serves on the Executive Committee of the Osteochondritis Dissecans Study Group of North America and is the chairman of the Membership Committee of that organization.

Even as a successful person, he has been through many hardships. These hardships led him to move from Colorado to Los Angeles, California. He is a brilliant individual who was able to get into his residency at The Cleveland Clinic Foundation due to a recommendation he got for his research. I greatly enjoy being with  Dr. Polousky and I look forward to what he will accomplish next.
