About the Musicians Treatment Foundation
The nonprofit Musician Treatment Foundation is devoted to the healthcare needs of professional musicians. This nonprofit is the first of its kind, in design, scope, and breadth – dedicated to the upper limb problems of musicians. The foundation aims to:
- facilitate and fund direct orthopedic specialty care for under- and uninsured musicians
- educate the public on how to minimize or prevent musician-specific injuries
- conduct and publish research on the unique diagnostic and treatment issues facing all musicians
- build a digital platform and surgeon network to care for musicians regardless of where they are touring in the world
Started by a longtime friend of Costello’s, orthopedic surgeon O. Alton Barron MD, it is overseen by 14-member board of volunteers from the business, music, and healthcare professions including Costello and his wife, musician Diana Krall.
