Our department is widely recognized for our interdisciplinary research in areas including musculoskeletal conditions and care, concussion, biomechanics, biomaterials and computer-assisted surgery. 

We are earnest surgeons and sports medicine specialists, physical therapists and athletic trainers. Our physicians serve as team doctors for the Buffalo Bills, Buffalo Sabres and Buffalo Bandits as well as UB’s athletic programs and several other college teams.

We’re proud to be an integral part of the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences and the Western New York community. Buffalo is a dynamic place, and we feel fortunate to call it home. We’re always eager to introduce new trainees, program applicants and potential faculty and staff members to our city.

Moreover, our department boasts state-of-the-art research facilities such as our concussion management clinic and our Kenneth A. Krackow, MD, Orthopaedic Research Laboratory.
