After more than a quarter century practicing in Butte, Dr. Nick DiGiovine is retiring next month.

Dr. DiGiovine is a renewed orthopedic surgeon who has been a leader in the state — and beyond — when it comes to concussion treatment and awareness.

Shortly after arriving in Butte, Dr. DiGiovine launched Montana Sports Medicine, which uses a team of highly-trained athletic trainers to make sure all athletes in Southwest Montana receive quality medical care.

A former Notre Dame football player and a team physician for the Pittsburgh Steelers, Dr. DiGiovine and his wife also raised three children in the Mining City.

While Dr. DiGiovine is retiring, he is leaving our athletes in good shape, and he will leave a legacy that will last for decades.
