About Me

I specialize in Sports Medicine

Orthopedic Sports Medicine Residency, Program Director

I have a special medical interest in sports medicine.

I earned my medical degree form the University of Michigan Medical School in Ann Arbor, MI, and I received my post-graduate training at the University of Michigan Hospitals in General Surgery and Orthopedic Surgery and the Orthopaedic Specialty Clinic, Salt Lake, UT, in Knee and Sports Medicine.

I am board certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery.

My goal is to return patients to the level of physical activity that they desire after an injury. To achieve this goal, a thorough history and evaluation followed by appropriate testing and treatment is imperative.

Dr kolowich and [...] PA excellent providers always listen and courteous


Good experience overall very detailed in describing what was wrong with my knee


Dr. Kolowich is my knight in shining armor. I have seen numerous doctors over the last 20 years for a congenital birth defect affecting both of my knees. Every doctor does the imaging, tells me my knees are beyond repair, and then shows me the door. None of them even helped with the pain I'm in 24/7. Dr. Kolowich is the first doctor I've seen since I was 12 (now 31) who is willing to help me. I told her about my previous experiences and now everytime I see her she makes it a point to tell me that she's not giving up on me and that she's still going to help me. If it wasn't for her, I'd probably have to wait another 15 years before I was deemed "old enough" for knee replacements and anyone would help me. I will never be able to fully express my gratitude and appreciation for Dr. Kolowich.


Comfortable, trusting
