Biography[edit]

Flatow graduated from Princeton University with a degree in biochemistry in 1977. He earned his medical degree from the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1981 and completed a surgical residency at St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital Center and an orthopaedic residency and fellowship at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center.[5]

After 11 years on the faculty at Columbia University, in 1998 Flatow joined the staff at Mount Sinai Hospital, where he is currently Professor and Chair of Orthopaedics. At Mount Sinai, in collaboration with Mount Sinai's Department of Anesthesiology, Flatow has pioneered the use of regional blocks to diminish the need for general anesthesia in shoulder surgery.[2][5]

Flatow is a reviewer for Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research, the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Arthroscopy, the Journal of Orthopaedic Research, and the American Journal of Sports Medicine. He is both editor and reviewer for the Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery.
