JOSEPH J. CZARNECKI, MD – ORTHOPAEDIC SURGEON

czarnecki-joseph

I am an orthopaedic surgeon with additional sub-specialty training in sports medicine, and experience caring for high school, collegiate and professional athletes alike. My practice includes all areas of sports medicine with particular interest in disorders of the shoulder, knee, hip and ankle.

My interest in shoulder conditions includes arthroscopic rotator cuff and instability repairs. For the knee, my focus is on cartilage repair, ACL and other knee ligament reconstructions as well as both partial and total knee replacements. For the hip, I specialize in arthroscopic treatment of labral tears and femoro-acetabular impingement.  For the ankle, my interests include the treatment of cartilage lesions, tendon injuries, instability and arthritis. My hobbies include striper and tuna fishing, and playing sports and coaching my three sons.
