M. Truitt Cooper, MD


After completing a fellowship in orthopaedic foot and ankle surgery, I began practicing in Richmond, VA. In 2014 I moved to Charlottesville to join the faculty at the University of Virginia, where I have been able to pursue teaching and research endeavors, while still remaining active in patient care.

Beyond Orthopaedics

“Spending time with my wife and three children, a well as any outdoor activity, particularly cycling and trail running.”
