Dr. Zgonis' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Zgonis "Dr. Miltiadis Zgonis is an Assistant Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Pennsylvania. He is also Co-director of the Penn Human Tissue Laboratory. He obtained his undergraduate degree in Biology at Tufts University (2000), and then obtained his MD from Albany Medical College (2004). He then completed a 2-year NIH Postdoctoral research fellowship at the McKay Orthopaedic Research Laboratory under the guidance of Dr. Louis J. Soslowsky (2006). There his research endeavors were focused on cell biology and biomechanics of the rotator cuff and tendon healing. He continued at the University of Pennsylvania for 6 years of residency training in Orthopaedic Surgery, which included one additional year of research time at McKay, and completed this in 2012. While there, he was exposed to cartilage and meniscus sciences under the direction of Dr. Robert Mauck, which in combination with previous work in tendon and rotator cuff solidified Sports as a venue for continuing to develop his clinical and research interests. He completed his final year of postgraduate training at Duke University while completing a Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Fellowship under Dr. Claude T. Moorman and Dr. Dean Taylor (2013). Since then, he has built a career balancing a busy clinical practice treating conditions of the shoulder and the knee with a full day per week of dedicated research time investigating various topics within the knee meniscus and cartilage basic sciences."

I saw Dr. Zgonis for acute shoulder pain that I had been having for 8 weeks. My pain was bad enough that I couldn't sleep at night, and couldn't turn my head in any direction. He was an hour behind schedule, wouldn't let me finish explaining my symptoms before he diagnosed me with a "strained...more

While Dr. Zgonis was running a bit behind schedule, it was clear why after seeing him. I've been dealing with a knee injury for some time now and Dr. Zgonis was able to help me and gave me all of the time I needed to ask my questions, a truly great bedside manner. He was recommended to me by a...more

went for a appointment today at 12:20. Waited until 1:10 minutes, then I left without ever seeing him. I'll never be back. My time is valuable too. He needs to invest in a scheduler.

Dear Tom, I am sad to see that you had to wait so long and that I wasn't able to see you and try to help with your problem. The truth is that while we live in a world where patients are scheduled at specific intervals, some patients require more time than what is scheduled due to the complexity of the problem they are facing. You can't rush these things. Unfortunately, this makes me run behind at times. It's unpredictable and not typical. I hope you understand and had your problem addressed.

He is very knowledgeable and takes the time to explain everything until the patient and family understand. He is able to get his point across without talking down to his patients and he doesn't rush through the appointment, so can at times be understandably delayed. It was very easy to get...more
