A Message from Randall Marcus, MD

September 15, 2013

The Department of Orthopaedics at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center and Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine is one of the oldest and most respected in the nation, and it continues to be at the forefront of clinical orthopaedic research, innovation and treatment. Its establishment in 1907 occurred decades before the creation of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery. To say it has a long-standing tradition of excellence would be an understatement. 

The department has trained some of the top orthopaedic surgeons in the world, and leaders of many of the major spine programs in the U.S. and throughout the world have trained at UH Cleveland Medical Center. The department’s excellence in clinical activities is consistently recognized by U.S. News & World Report, which ranks it as one of the top orthopaedic departments in the country.

Our board-certified and fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeons have expertise in specific subspecialties, including total joint reconstruction, spine, musculoskeletal oncology, foot and ankle, hand and upper extremity, pediatric orthopaedics, shoulder and elbow, sports medicine and trauma.

I invite you to explore the physician resources on UHDoctor.org to learn more.
