Dr. Jamali's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Jamali "Dr. Ali Jamali joined SMOC as a General Orthopaedic surgeon in 2015. He specializes in Joint Replacement Arthroplasty and Sports Medicine. He has been trained, qualified to practice and performs the most up-to-date surgical procedures, including minimally invasive robotic joint replacement, anterior hip joint arthroplasty, reverse shoulder replacement, arthroscopic rotator cuff surgery, arthroscopic ankle arthrodesis, and many more. He taught at EVMS for an impressive 35 years. Additionally, Dr. Jamali instructed residents in the departments of Family Practice, Internal Medicine and Combined Program, and medical students as assistant Professor of Orthopedic Surgery at EVMS.
