LONDON, Ky. (Sept. 14, 2020) – Kevin Magone, MD, has joined CHI Saint Joseph Medical Group in London as an orthopedic surgeon. Dr. Magone moved from New York, New York, to be closer to his extended family and to begin serving patients in the London area. He says the combination of the team he’ll be working with and family nearby helped solidify his family’s decision to move to Kentucky.

Dr. Magone focuses primarily on shoulder and elbow arthroplasty, arthroscopy, and sports medicine. In regard to injury treatment, he believes in having a joint decision-making process with his patients.

“My philosophy is to let my patients to be in charge while I provide information and recommendations for their particular injury or condition,” said Dr. Magone. “I will also help guide them to make their own decision that makes them feel comfortable with their course of treatment. Lastly, I will provide support during their recovery process.”

Dr. Magone earned his medical degree from Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine in Dayton, Ohio, and he attended Ohio State University where he received his Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry. After graduating from Wright State University, Dr. Magone moved further north where he completed an orthopedic surgery internship and residency at Michigan State University McLaren-Flint Regional Medical Center in Flint, Michigan. Upon finishing his residency, Dr. Magone participated in a shoulder and elbow orthopedic surgical fellowship at New York University Hospital for Joint Diseases.

Dr. Magone says orthopedic surgery runs in his blood; he was exposed to medicine and this field at a young age – his father was also an orthopedic surgeon. He says spending time with his father and hearing about orthopedic surgery helped to develop his interest in the field.

Dr. Magone and his wife, Ashley, are both from Cincinnati and have family still living in the area. In their free time, they enjoy exploring the great outdoors with their three young children, swimming, hiking and fishing.

“When I was first connected to Saint Joseph London, it just felt right,” said Dr. Magone. “The combination of the job responsibilities, the incredible team of caring professionals and the vicinity to our extended family are all reasons I knew London was the right decision for my family and me. I am thrilled to move forward with this next chapter.”

Dr. Magone is accepting new patients. His office is located at 160 London Mountain View Drive in London. To make an appointment with Dr. Magone, visit www.CHISaintJosephHealth.org or call 606.864.0770.
