Dr. Miniaci’s patented technology offers patients a less invasive shoulder surgery using industry-leading hardware uniquely designed for the complex shoulder joint.

This award is a peer-nominated honor given to distinguished alumni from his medical school alma mater, the University of Western Ontario, a large research university. Dr. Miniaci’s care philosophy centers on thorough communication with patients, their families and their provider team. He listens intently and discusses conditions in detail, helping patients feel heard and confident in their decision. Like many grandparents, Dr. Miniaci enjoys spending time with his grandchildren, especially on the beautiful Canadian coast. He also enjoys golf but admits his surgical skills are far better than his golf skills.
