Welcome Sydney Harman, M.D.
August 12, 2019
Methodist Sports Medicine, one of the leading orthopedic and sports medicine centers located throughout Indiana, announces the hiring of Sydney Harman, M.D. Harman will join the staff as an anesthesiologist with a specialization in interventional pain management.
Harman received her bachelor’s with high distinction from the University of Iowa in 2009 and soon followed in her father’s footsteps by earning her medical degree from the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine. Harman later moved to Indianapolis and completed her residency in anesthesiology at Indiana University.
During her residency, Harman was introduced to pain medicine where she began working with patients at the VA hospital in Indianapolis. It was there that she was able to see patient results by providing relief and personalized treatments for those suffering with chronic pain.
“Dr. Harman’s experience and knowledge is a great addition to our team,” said Dr. Mark Ritter, president of Methodist Sports Medicine. “We are thrilled to have her and look forward to watching her use her skills to provide patients a solution for finding relief with their injuries.”
After her residency, Harman returned to the University of Iowa to complete her fellowship in pain medicine that was completed in the summer of 2019. During her fellowship, Harman learned the importance of taking the time to know a patient’s life story and their goals for pain management – a philosophy that she looks forward to bringing to the Methodist Sports Medicine team.
“My goal as a physician is to understand my patients in a way that allows me to help them get back to what they’re passionate about,” said Dr. Sydney Harman. “I’m beyond excited to join a group of highly skilled physicians that carry a similar philosophy and have great reputations throughout the state of Indiana and beyond.
Harman will begin taking patients on August 12 and practice out of Methodist Sports Medicine’s Indianapolis and Greenwood locations. For more information about Methodist Sports Medicine, visit www.methodistsports.com.
