Care for Our Musicians

The Musician Treatment Foundation is a nonprofit that helps provide free orthopedic care for eligible professional musicians who are uninsured or underinsured and cannot afford the care they need. MTF orchestrates specialized care by experienced orthopedic surgeons in Austin, New York City, and dozens of other cities across the United States.

If you are a musician in need of orthopedic care, please contact us at care@mtfusa.org and we will explore your eligibility for MTF assistance. Basic eligibility includes professional musician status, income level, and proximity or ability to travel to one of our Physicians for Musicians cities.

Please explore information about MTF’s care mission here. We are privileged to share the stories and talents of the musicians who MTF has assisted and who are in turn paying it forward to other musicians.
