Please join the Summit Medical Group family in congratulating four members of our talented orthopedics department for their inclusion in NJ Monthly’s Select Surgeons award list in the category of Bone and Joint Surgery. The Select Surgeons list compiles the most competent physicians in New Jersey.
Winners from Summit Medical Group Orthopedics are:
Dr. Abrutyn is a sports medicine expert who has written dozens of peer-reviewed journal articles and textbook chapters. A sought-after speaker, Dr. Abrutyn has been invited to give talks to other clinicians at conferences around the country and the world.
Dr. Garberina is an Air Force veteran and a shoulder and elbow specialist. Most recently, he spoke at Duke University’s 11th annual Emily Berend Adult Reconstruction Symposium on the subjects of anatomic and reverse shoulder replacements.
Specializing in general orthopedic surgery, Dr. Kanellakos has a particular love for performing total hip and total knee replacements. He says he loves being an orthopedic surgeon because the discipline allows him to help patients see immediate quality-of-life improvements.
Dr. Zornitzer specializes in treating conditions of the elbow, wrist and hand. He is an active member of his community, practicing near where he was raised, and says he relishes the opportunity to treat family friends and former teachers.
