Thomas J. Thekkekandam, MD, is board certified in family medicine and sports medicine. He is a primary care sports medicine physician with wide-ranging professional interests, including non-surgical adult and pediatric orthopedics and sports-related injuries, including fractures, sprains and concussions. He also performs ultrasound-guided nerve, tendon, and joint injections and uses interventional biologics (such as Platelet Rich Plasma).

A problem solver, he focuses on making an accurate diagnosis, prefers rehabilitative techniques, and if necessary, highly specific, minimally invasive procedures. He understands that every human body is unique and reacts differently to interventions. His procedural skill, attention to detail and concern for the individual needs of his patients set him apart. He believes in empowering his patients to choose and maintain an active and healthy lifestyle.

In the past, he has served as a team physician for area high schools and North Carolina A&T University.

Dr. Thekkekandam grew up in Greensboro. Though fitness training is an important part of his life, his true hobby is motorsports.

“I don’t have the typical approach or personality people often expect from a physician. My mantra keeps the patient involved and interested, and when appropriate, I maintain a light and jovial atmosphere.” - Thomas J. Thekkekandam, MD

*Dr. T. is great in all areas.
September 28, 2020
was neither good or bad but was excellent as usual. Dr T always provides me with information as needed and is very informative about my needs as a patient concerning my medical history. Dr T is the best doctor I have ever had since changing to Cone Health in Kernersville, NC several years ago.

Dr. T was very knowledgeable and knew exactly how to test the things I was having issues with even if I couldn't explain it as well.

excellent care

Dr. T always provides the best care whenever I have seen him. This was a Tele-appointment since I was experiencing Covid symptoms and had been exposed to a co-worker who tested positive. Dr. T went above and beyond to calm my concerns and make sure I got tested as soon as possible. I always recommend him to anyone needing an excellent sports doctor or overall general practitioner because of his care, attention to detail, and re-assuring professionalism.
