I would like to introduce two new faculty joining UVA Ortho this August. Meet Drs. Ian Duensing and Mike Hadeed.


Dr. Duensing
Ian Duensing, MD

Dr. Ian Duensing started his education at Texas A&M University in College Station, TX. After graduating magna cum laude, he continued his medical education at Texas A&M University Health Science Center and Baylor Scott & White Hospital in Temple, TX.

During medical school, he was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society and graduated with honors. He then completed his Orthopaedic residency training at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, UT. He is currently in fellowship in Hip and Knee Arthroplasty at Duke University and will graduate in July 2021. Ian is extremely excited to join the faculty at UVA and is committed to furthering the department in any and all ways he can.

He is passionate about providing good clinical care, trainee education, and research. His specific research interests lie in peri-prosthetic joint infection, patient reported outcomes, and genetic and familial influences of total joint outcomes.  

He will be joined by his wife, Lindsay, who has been by his side since college. They have two young boys, Nate (4 years old) and Jack (2 years old). Recreationally, they enjoy all things outdoors including hiking, fly fishing, and cycling.


Dr. Hadeed
Michael Hadeed, MD

Dr. Michael Hadeed was born and raised in Northern Virginia. He completed medical school and residency at the University of Virginia. He is currently completing his trauma fellowship at Denver Health.

He is excited to return to UVA. His focus will be on treating each patient as an individual to help them accomplish their treatment goals. His primary research interest is to optimize early outcomes for patients after both operative and nonoperative treatment.

He'll be returning to Charlottesville with his wife and daughter. Outside of work, he enjoys family time, grilling and biking.
