About the Doctor
Dr. Snyder spent many years in the U.S. Army, finishing his military career as the Chief of Orthopaedic Surgery at the United States Military Academy at West Point. Dr. Snyder retired from the Army as a Lieutenant Colonel in 1994, which is the year he joined OSC. Dr. Snyder was the first orthopaedic surgeon in the area to utilize the ConforMis partial and total knee replacement system. ConforMIS is a computer mapped, patient-specific knee replacement system designed to conform to the patient’s unique anatomy. This results in a less traumatic procedure, significant bone preservation, natural feel and superior fit.
Dr. Snyder and his wife Candy have four children, one grandchild, three Golden Retrievers and five cats. Dr. Snyder has played competitive handball for 41 years, playing on average three times per week. He often travels great distances for handball tournaments. Dr. Snyder also enjoys running and golf, when he finds the time.
