Dr. Minas is an Attending Orthopedic Surgeon at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, MA, an Associate Professor of Orthopedic Surgery at Harvard Medical School, and Director of the Cartilage Repair Center. He received his medical degree from the University of Toronto and his Masters in Epidemiology from the Harvard School of Public Health. He completed his fellowship in Trauma and Joint Reconstruction at the Sunnybrook Medical Centre in Toronto, Canada and a Total Joint Arthroplasty fellowship at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

Dr. Minas is a member of the Knee Society, and in 2013 his team was honored with the Insall Award for his work on Long Term Outcomes assessment of ACI in the knee. He is involved in the development of tissue preserving implants and instrumentation for knees targeted at joint resurfacing. His work in patient-specific knee replacement has led to the introduction of a family of tissue preserving, customized implants based on patient-specific imaging data to restore native articulating geometry.

Dr. Minas has a strong focus on joint preservation in the young adult, by primarily developing and assessing cartilage repair and osteotomy techniques. He has performed two of the only ACI’s in the hip joint in the United States and he has also performed over 400 ACI’s. He has also designed an interpositional device (Conformis) and patellofemoral joint prosthesis to help osteoarthritic patients avoid a total knee replacement.

One Patient.
One Implant.

Conformis does something that we believe no other knee implant manufacturer has done. We combine advanced 3D imaging technology with the latest in manufacturing capabilities to put the patient at the center of implant design.
