Joint replacement & reconstruction surgeon will offer appointments in Amherst, Niagara Falls and Orchard Park
The Joint Replacement team at UBMD Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine is continuing to grow, as the largest orthopaedic and sports medicine group in Western New York welcomes K. Keely Boyle, M.D. back to Buffalo.
Returning to Western New York from her most recent position as chief fellow at New York City’s prestigious Hospital for Special Surgery, Boyle is a familiar face at UBMD Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine. A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and The George Washington School of Medicine and Health Sciences, Boyle completed her residency in orthopaedic surgery at the University at Buffalo. While at UB, she also served as the chief administrative fellow, published many articles and spoke to national audiences on joint replacement research.
“Each patient may have a different set of needs and personal circumstances when they come to my office for evaluation of their hip or knee pain,” says Boyle. “It is important to understand each patient’s expectations, especially return of function and activity level. I try to talk to each patient about what specific aspects of their life will help improve their mobility and decrease their pain. Many of these discussions focus on simple non-operative measures that can be done before surgery that will optimize a successful outcome after joint replacement.”
Originally from Washington, D.C., Boyle is well respected in the field of joint replacement and has received several awards in recognition of her work and research. Boyle is a four-time recipient of the Eugene R. Mindell, M.D. Orthopedic Residency Scientific Day Research Award, as well as the Gillespie Award for Pediatric Orthopedics, Kenneth A. Krackow Award for Outstanding Research and Clinician Scientist, Peter A. Casagrande Award for Outstanding Resident Performance in Orthopedic Surgery, and the Resident Research Award from the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons. In 2020, she was also awarded the Philip D. Wilson Award for Excellence in Orthopaedic Surgery Research and the Adult Reconstruction and Joint Replacement Award for Research Excellence by a Fellow, both from the Hospital for Special Surgery. She also holds Mako robotic-assisted surgery certifications in both partial knee replacement and total hip replacement, and is an active member of the American Academy of Hip and Knee Surgeons and the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.
In addition to standard joint replacements and nonsurgical care options, Boyle also brings expertise in joint revision procedures – a more complex type of operation that works to repair an existing joint replacement or install a second replacement into a previously replaced joint. As part of her work, she will also be educating young surgeons from the Jacobs School of Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, training them on the latest practices, techniques and procedures, helping drive improved patient outcomes, improving the future of orthopaedic surgery around the world.
Boyle is now accepting patient appointments and will see patients at the Amherst Health Center and BrookBridge in Orchard Park, as well as at the Summit Healthplex in Niagara Falls. She will also be scheduling visits via telemedicine. Call UBMD Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine at 716.204.3200 to learn more or make an appointment.
