DR. MICHAEL S. TODD, FELLOWSHIP TRAINED ORTHOPAEDIC SURGEON
After completion of medical school at Ohio University, I headed west to Ft Bliss and William Beaumont Army Medical Center in El Paso, Texas. I was chosen as an orthopaedic internship pre-select in 2001. I completed my orthopaedic residency training at the same facility but in conjunction with Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, El Paso campus. This program allowed for extensive exposure to all facets of orthopaedic surgery, ranging from simple carpal tunnel releases and knee arthroscopy to the severely injured poly-trauma patient at the cities Level 1 trauma facility, Thomason Medical Center, now University Hospital of El Paso.
I had intentions of becoming a total joint specialists having rotated for 3 months at Rush Medical Center under the supervision of Richard Berger MD, world respected Total Joint Surgeon. However, my heart belonged to the active duty soldier and their desire to get back to the battlefield as quickly and healthy as possible. I made the decision to focus on Sports Medicine and its ability get my soldiers healthy and back in the fight.
In 2007, I was selected to the prestigious John A Feagin Sports Medicine Fellowship at West Point, NY. The home of the United States Military Academy. My mentors from this program include COL Bob Arciero MD, now at UCONN, and past President of American Orthopaedic Society of Sports Medicine(AOSSM), COL Dean Taylor MD, Sport Medicine Fellowship Director, Duke University, COL Winston Warme MD, Director of the Shoulder and Elbow Fellowship at the University of Washington and COL Tom DeBerardino MD, now at UCONN. The year of additional training was exceptional. I gained extensive training on shoulder stabilization surgery, double bundle ACL reconstruction, meniscal transplantation, cartilage restoration procedures to include OATS, osteochondral allografts, and Carticel. I also learned how to combine a few of these procedures with osteotomies for joint preservation.
During my time at USMA, I also had the privilege to rotate at Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS), a world renowned sports medicine program that includes Russ Warren MD, David Altchek MD, Frank Cordasco MD, and Bryan Kelly MD—highly respected hip arthroscopist.
The best part of my fellowship was participating with the cadets and the many teams of USMA. I was part of the medical staff for the football team, wrestling, hockey, the shooting team and the baseball team. I also covered the training rooms for the remaining cadets who weren’t on Varsity Sports but sustained more injuries during their required physical education requirements.
Upon completion of fellowship, I returned to William Beaumont in anticipation of taking over as Chief of the Shoulder and Sports Medicine Service for my mentor, COL Warme upon his retirement. At that time I also assumed the role of Associate Residency Program Director for Orthopaedics. My department trained 4-5 orthopaedic residents per year. I helped train roughly 25 orthopaedic surgeons during my tenure at WBAMC.
My time at WBAMC allowed me to continue to hone my skills learned in residency and fellowship. I was one of the most active surgeons at our facility performing predominately revision shoulder and knee reconstruction, cartilage restoration, meniscal transplants, and hip arthroscopy. The short version is that if a surgery failed somewhere else, it made its way to my door to fix. The life of soldier is not easy, and in the best of hands, a surgery will fail due to the riggers of military life. Fortunately, my training gave me the skill set and expertise to get the soldier back mission. To contact Dr. Todd call (330) 202-3420, or use the contact page.
