Dr. Amini's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Amini "Michael Amini, MD is a fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon, specializing in arthroscopic and reconstructive surgery of the shoulder and elbow. He cares for patients with sprains/strains, tears, breaks, and arthritis of the shoulder, elbow, hip, and knee. Regardless if his patients want to throw a baseball over 90 miles per hour or just raise their arm above their head without pain, he believes every person deserves the same level of care that is custom-fit for his or her needs. Prior to joining The CORE Institute, Dr. Amini cared for patients in a private practice for several years in Tucson, Arizona. He practices minimally invasive surgical techniques to improve recovery and minimize risk to patients as well as offering Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and reparative treatment options when appropriate. He received his fellowship training in shoulder and elbow at the Cleveland Clinic. During his time in Ohio, he developed a special interest in shoulder and elbow replacements and continues to conduct research to improve the methods and technology of these procedures. Dr. Amini completed his residency program and internship at the Campbell Clinic Orthopaedics/University of Tennessee. During his training, he cared for athletes, including the Memphis Grizzlies basketball team, Memphis Redbirds AAA baseball team and several high school football teams. Dr. Amini received his medical degree and bachelor's from the University of Missouri. Dr. Amini is an active member of the medical community and academic medicine. He is a member of the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons, American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, Arthroscopy Association of North America, and American Orthopedic Association Emerging Leaders Program."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Amini "Though people rarely need an Orthopaedic Surgeon for matters of life-and-death, they need one for matters that affect our quality-of-life. Pain and lack of function significantly impact a person's ability to work, do hobbies, play sports, or even sleep without pain. I feel fortunate to have the best job because I get to help people get back to doing what they love to do in life.

I treat people with sprains/strains, tears, breaks, and arthritis of the shoulder, elbow, hip, and knee. I believe in exhausting other treatments before offering surgery. I strive to get to know every patient on a personal level, which helps me individualize treatment. A focused rehab and therapy program that is tailored to each individual's needs is crucial to the success of any treatment, surgical or not. Regardless if you want to throw a baseball over 90 miles per hour or just raise your arm above your head without pain, every person deserves the same level of care that is custom-fit for his or her needs."

He treats you like family. He is one of the few surgeons I have known who actually HAS a personality. Naturally, skill in the Operating Room is paramount, but making the patient feel like you really care about their well being is where many/most surgeons fail miserably. Dr. Amini is an exception.
