OrthoAtlanta an Official Partner of the 2023 Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl
ATLANTA, Dec. 28, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Piedmont Orthopedics | OrthoAtlanta is proud to serve as the official orthopedic and sports medicine provider to the 2023 Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl on Saturday, Dec. 30, at noon E.T., in Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Pairing No. 11 Ole Miss against No. 10 Penn State, this year’s matchup represents only the sixth Big Ten vs. SEC matchup in the Bowl’s history, but will be the second-consecutive showdown between the conferences following last year’s CFP Semifinal that featured No. 4 Ohio State vs. No. 1 Georgia. It also marks the first-ever meeting between the two programs.
OrthoAtlanta provides on-site orthopedic medical services on game day and throughout Bowl Week to the players of both teams, their coaches, staff and officials. OrthoAtlanta has served as the official sports medicine provider to the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl for more than 20 years, and is recognized by Peach Bowl, Inc., as one of its longest-running sponsor partners.
“OrthoAtlanta physicians serve as the key medical point of contact for the visiting teams while they are in town,” said Dr. Todd A. Schmidt, OrthoAtlanta orthopedic surgeon and Medical Director for the 2023 Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl. “OrthoAtlanta provides 24/7 availability from the time the teams arrive in Atlanta, staying with the teams, traveling to all practices, and working in the training rooms with the team medical staff.” In conjunction with the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, OrthoAtlanta also hosts a medical team dinner for both teams during Bowl Week, allowing them to socialize in a casual setting, a service no other bowl game provides.
