The staff at the WNYCRC is composed of both arthroscopic (cartilage restoration) and arthroplasty (cartilage replacement) board certified orthopaedic surgeons.
Each of our staff members has spent an additional year of training in a fellowship program specifically designed for the treatment of articular cartilage injuries of the knee. These fellowships include some of the top ranked hospitals in the country; including Johns Hopkins, Harvard (Massachusetts General) and the Cleveland Clinic. Our staff all carry University at Buffalo faculty appointments within the School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.
Our affiliation with the University at Buffalo, its research facilities, and resources allows us to provide state of the art care in diagnosing and treating cartilage injuries.
