About Michael Edward Pollack

“I enjoy caring for active, athletic patients of all ages and treating their shoulder, elbow and knee problems,” Dr. Michael E. Pollack says. “Everything I do is geared toward treating the individual and avoiding unnecessary surgery. If surgery is indicated, my techniques minimize the procedure, decrease pain and accelerate recovery time.”

Dr. Pollack is board certified in orthopedic surgery, subspecialty certified in sports medicine and fellowship trained in shoulder, knee and minimally invasive procedures. He offers expertise in arthroscopic surgery, including All-Inside® ACL reconstruction, meniscus repair, patella stabilization, rotator cuff repair, shoulder stabilization and labral repair.
