Biography

Dr. Austin Fragomen attended medical school at the State University of New York Downstate College of Medicine. He excelled through a very hands-on surgical internship at Montefiore and Jacobi medical centers in the Bronx. He launched into his orthopaedic residency training program, under John R. Denton, MD, at the Saint Vincent Catholic Medical Center. As chief resident, he took a strong interest in fracture care, limb reconstruction, and joint preservation surgery. He then relocated to San Francisco, California to dedicate himself to learning advanced techniques in surgery of the shoulder and knee with pioneer and innovator Eugene M. Wolf, MD. He returned to New York's Hospital for Special Surgery to help start the fellowship in Limb Lengthening & Reconstruction Surgery. Dedicated to skeletal reconstruction, Dr. Fragomen and Dr. Rozbruch created the Limb Lengthening and Complex Reconstruction Service (LLRCS) at HSS. He serves as Fellowship Director, Director of Education, and Director of the LLRCS Clinic. He is dedicated to clinical and biomechanical research and enjoys his busy clinical practice. Dr. Fragomen has presented his clinical and biomechanical research at medical meetings and has authored articles for various Orthopaedic journals and textbooks. He has lectured extensively on related topics to residency training programs and in the community setting. He maintains a position as a reviewer on the editorial staff for Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research and the Journal of Orthopaedic Research. He also serves as Treasurer for the AAOS Limb Lengthening and Reconstruction Society. Skilled in the art of less invasive surgery, Dr. Fragomen performs a sophisticated and comprehensive analysis of each patient to determine an optimal treatment plan. Whether performing an all-arthroscopic rotator cuff repair or re-aligning a deformed limb through mini-incisions, the goal remains the same: to minimize the trauma of surgery and maximize a rapid and functional recovery.
