Remembering a Legend: Dr. Frank McCue

By Jeff White

Dr. Frank C. McCue III, internationally recognized orthopedic surgeon and sports-medicine pioneer, was a doctor and medical assistant for the University of Virginia athletic program from 1961 to 2003. McCue received his undergraduate degree, medical degree, and completed his residency at the University. During his tenure he treated a variety of Cavalier athletes and other athletes and patients from the Charlottesville area.

McCue retired in 2003 and was named Professor Emeritus of Orthopedics at the University of Virginia's hospital. He later became the first inductee to the Order of the Crossed Sabres, which is noted as the Virginia Football Alumni Club's highest honor. His presence in sports medicine continues as the Virginia High School Coaches Association annually gives a sports medicine award in his honor.

In 1998, the McCue Society was created and provides a variety of scholarships in the field of Sports Medicine to both graduates and undergraduates. The McCue Society, made up of McCue's former colleagues, fellows, athletic trainers and students and friends, also provides a forum for sports medicine education and research among other contributions to the field of study.

The McCue Center, Virginia's primary athletics support building, was dedicated in 1991 and named in his honor.
