Dr. Paulos and his team support more than 1,000 patient visits each year with the least invasive most successful treatment based on patient goals. He has invented and developed both surgical and non-surgical procedures that are considered the “gold standard” for treatments around the world. He approaches each patient by considering all non-surgical remedies first and accessing their suitability for both operative and non-operative treatment. It’s the patient’s choice when and if they are ready for orthopedic surgery. Beginning with the best outcome in mind, he will guide you through the entire process from pre-surgical preparation to post-operative therapy helping you understand and contribute to your own recovery and accelerating your “return to play”.

His arsenal of tools ranges from early assessment, injury avoidance, performance, non-surgical intervention, surgery, post-surgical rehabilitation, and ongoing maintenance. He also has over 100 publications in peer-reviewed journals, over 370 academic presentations around the world, been an instructor for over 75 orthopaedic instructional course lectures, and has published over 47 books and chapters in his specialties. He also has 30 patents and patents pending for medical devices and procedures.
