I am an orthopaedic surgeon, board certified by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS). I received my medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 1984. From 1984 to 1989, I did a research fellowship, an internship, and then an orthopaedic residency at the Mt. Sinai Medical Center in New York City. From 1989 to 1990, I completed a one-year fellowship in lower extremity joint reconstruction at the Johns Hopkins University Medical Institutions in Baltimore, Maryland. Following this, I stayed on the full-time orthopaedic faculty at Johns Hopkins from 1990 to 2000 as an Assistant and then as an Associate Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery. In 2000, I co-founded the Rubin Institute for Advanced Orthopedics at Sinai Hospital of Baltimore and became the Director of the Center for Joint Preservation and Replacement. I held this position through June of 2016 and had become an Adjunct Associate Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at Johns Hopkins. As of July 2016, I assumed the position as Chairman of Orthopaedic Surgery at the Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio. In April of 2018, I began as a staff orthopaedic physician at Lenox Hill Hospital, New York, New York, and serve as Vice President of Strategic Initiatives, Orthopaedic Service Line and System Chief of Joint Reconstruction, as well as Director of Research for Orthopaedics Northwell Health, Inc. in New York.
