Dr. Schwartz's bio
This content was provided by Dr. Schwartz "Benjamin J. Schwartz, MD is a board certified orthopaedic surgeon specializing in the surgical and non-surgical treatment of arthritis of the hip and knee including total joint replacement and revision. Dr. Schwartz attended the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, VA where he was one of a select group of incoming freshman designated as a James Monroe Scholar. While in college, Dr. Schwartz participated in scientific research investigating the effect of retinoic acid on the development of the vascular system in frog embryos. After graduating with high honors from William and Mary, Dr. Schwartz attended the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond where he was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society, graduating in the top 10% of his class. Following his medical school training, Dr. Schwartz performed his residency in orthopaedic surgery at Boston Medical Center where he participated in research involving the treatment of hip fractures in the elderly as well as athletic activity after total joint replacement. For his work, he was awarded the Lahey Clinic Resident Research Award during his Chief Resident year. After completing residency, Dr. Schwartz performed a fellowship at the prestigious Anderson Orthopedic Institute during which he spent a year focusing solely on the treatment of hip and knee arthritis. During his fellowship, Dr. Schwartz worked with some of the pioneers of modern hip and knee replacement including Dr. Charles Engh, MD, a world renowned surgeon who pioneered the use of cementless implants in total hip arthroplasty and Gerard Engh, MD, one of the world's foremost experts in partial knee replacement. Dr. Schwartz obtained his certification from the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery in 2010 and is a member of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons as well as both the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons and International Congress of Joint Replacement, two specialty societies focused on the treatment of hip and knee problems. In 2014, Dr. Schwartz became the first doctor to be named Physician of the Year for Columbus Regional Health System in the area of Clinical Excellence and in 2015 he received the Department of Surgery Award for Clinical Excellence and Professionalism from North Shore Medical Center."
This content was provided by Dr. Schwartz "My goal is to provide patients with a thorough understanding of the natural history of their disease and to educate them about all of the treatment options available. I believe strongly in the doctor-patient relationship as the foundation of successful treatment. In addition, ample time is given for appointments so that you may ask questions and never feel hurried or herded.
My primary area of practice is focused on the operative and non-operative treatment of arthritis of the hip and knee, and I am specially trained in hip and knee replacement surgery. I am proud to offer cutting edge surgical treatment including MAKOplasty robotic-assisted hip and knee replacement surgery, fast track recovery and discharge, and the novel muscle-sparing Direct Superior approach to hip replacement."
