Sports Medicine, Knee, Shoulder & Hip Arthroscopy

Geoffrey A. Bernas, MD, FAAOS

As a physician specializing in orthopaedic surgery, I focus on a combination of advanced nonoperative and operative techniques to treat injuries in patients of all ages and activity levels. My emphasis is on eliminating pain, preserving joints and restoring function so that my patients can return to their normal activity levels safely and as soon as possible. When surgery is necessary, I use advanced arthroscopic techniques for shoulder, hip and knee reconstruction. I continually try to refine and develop new techniques so that my patients always receive the best possible care.

My practice extends outside of the operating room and clinic. I care for injuries as they occur at community, high school, college, professional and international sports events. By direct interaction with athletes, “weekend warriors,” parents, coaches and administrators, I help provide injury prevention, injury treatment and recovery for safe return to activity.
