Meet Dr. Michael McCabe

“I’m really passionate about my work, creating a positive patient experience, and helping you on your road to recovery.”


Meet Dr. Michael McCabe, the Sports Medicine & Arthroscopy specialist at APEX Orthopedics & Sports Medicine. Dr. McCabe focuses on arthroscopic procedures of the hip, knee, shoulder and elbow.


While most of his patients fall under the sports medicine category, a large portion of his patients are people who simply live an active lifestyle.

Learn about Hip Arthroscopy with Dr.McCabe


You or a loved one may be suffering with growing hip pain to the point where you feel a hip arthroscopy is the only option. Whether you’re an athlete or simply live an active lifestyle, hip pain can become a major hindrance to daily life.


Hip arthroscopy is a newer orthopedic specialty that can treat a variety of hip injuries and pain like hip impingements or labral tears.

Learn about Dr.McCabe returning to driving after lower extremity surgery


Whether you’re having a hip or knee arthroscopy, understanding when you can return to driving is crucial for your safety and those on the road. Some people may believe they are safe to get behind the wheel, when in reality, their body still isn’t capable of reacting properly to adverse driving conditions.


Keep in mind that when you can resume driving again depends on your body. Some patients will be able to drive sooner than others.

He is board certified and holds a sub-specialty certificate in orthopedic sports medicine.

Following Fellowship…

He has a special focus in hip arthroscopy including a procedure known as labral reconstruction for irreparable labral tears.
