WWE Medical Team Bios — 5 Out of 8 Are from Pitt Med Center

The bios of the professionals on the World Wrestling Entertainment medical team are at the company website. See

Five of the eight men — they are all men — are from the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. I have previously mentioned three doctors: Joseph Maroon (neurology and neurosurgery — WWE’s medical director), Bryan Donohue (cardiology), and Vijay Bahl (endocrinology). The two other UPMC personnel with WWE affiliations are Mark Lovell (a Ph.D. in neuropsychology who is involved with the concussion testing) and Thomas Sisk (a sports medicine specialist).

I’m still waiting to hear from someone at UPMC about acquiring the full text of its ethics policy and interpreting its application to the relationship between these UPMC people and WWE.
