Fractures, injuries to joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments.
Any injury or pain in the muscles, tendons, ligaments or bones is part of general orthopedics. Most of these problems are treated without the need for surgery. We are proud that we can manage these injuries most times without surgery.
Knee, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip and ankle problems.
Sports Medicine is the special part of orthopedics that identifies, treats and helps prevent sports-related injuries. To practice Sports Medicine at its highest level, an orthopedic surgeon should be Sports Medicine fellowship trained and Subspecialty Board Certified in Sports Medicine. In addition, the surgeon should have dedicated a substantial part of his training to caring for high level athletes. Dr Gerbino meets and exceeds those criteria. He has taught the Team Physician Course for more than 12 years.
Back, hip, knee, ankle and foot problems in dancers.
Dance Medicine is a very special part of Sports Medicine. Caring for football players is totally different from caring for dancers. Dr Gerbino helped care for the Boston Ballet dancers while he was in Boston and continues to understand and care for dancers of all ages and levels.
All bone, growth and sports problems in children and teens.
Children are not just small adults. They get different injuries and need to be treated differently. Understanding and treating children with orthopedic injuries is a passion of Dr Gerbino's. He spent many years as faculty of Boston Childrens’ Hospital, a Harvard Medical School hospital. He enjoys solving difficult pediatric and adolescent orthopedic problems.
