The University of Kentucky Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Sports Medicine has announced the launch of a new outreach clinic in Owenton.
 The clinic, run by Dr. Mary Lloyd Ireland, will occur on the first Tuesday of each month.
Ireland is a fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in sports medicine.
According to Allison Perry, senior information specialist with the University of Kentucky Public Relations Department, the idea for the clinic was sparked by a conversation Dr. Larry Johnson had with Rob Ullery, a UK certified athletic trainer who provides coverage for high school athletic programs in Owen and Gallatin counties.
“(Ullery) built a relationship with Dr. Johnson at the Owenton Clinic, and over a course of conversations, Dr. Johnson mentioned it would be helpful to have an orthopaedic physician in that area,” Perry said. “So the ortho department decided it would be a good outreach clinic site since we have relationships there already.”
The clinic is located at New Horizons at 120 Progress Way in Owenton. Appointments are made by physician referral only.
Physicians can call (859) 218-3131 to refer a patient.
