Dr. Jorge Chahla—orthopaedic surgeon, award-winning scientist, researcher, author, musician, skier, and former rugby star who speaks three languages—has been on the fast track to a career in medicine since childhood. At 28, he has accomplished more than most people accomplish in a lifetime. Already an M.D., he will soon complete a Ph.D. He has made presentations on three continents and co-authored more than 50 articles in peer-reviewed journals, as well as seven book chapters and a recently published iBook titled Complex Knee Surgery Made Easy. Now he is in the first year of a two-year fellowship at SPRI’s Center for Regenerative Sports Medicine. In Argentina, Dr. Chahla’s father, also named Jorge, is an orthopaedic surgeon, and his mother, Graciela, is an obstetrician/gynecologist. “I always loved orthopaedics. Growing up, I would go with my dad on weekends to the clinic or to the hospital to see patients,” says Dr. Chahla. “When it came time to decide on a career, I really didn’t have anything else in my mind.” When he began playing organized sports, the connection to orthopaedic medicine became even stronger. He played rugby at first with his friends at school and later as a member of Argentina’s National Junior Rugby Team. He didn’t have typical orthopaedic injuries, but did suffer one broken cheekbone and three broken noses.
