I am a fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon specializing in hand and upper extremity surgery. I grew up in St. Petersburg, FL and graduated from Washington and Lee University in Lexington, VA in 2004 with a B.S. in Biology and pre-medical studies. While there, I was on the collegiate baseball team and was named Academic All-Conference. I also won the Coach's and Captains' Award as a senior. I met my wife there as well. After college, I spent a year doing research at the Univ. of Pennsylvania Medical School. I enrolled with my wife, Mary, in A.T. Still University-Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine in Missouri, the country's oldest and well-respected school of osteopathy. I spent 2 years doing clinical rotations in York, PA before I was accepted into the largest and one of the best osteopathic orthopedic residencies in the country, Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. I received advanced upper-extremity surgery training from the Philadelphia Hand Center and Rothman Institute, including rotations in Baltimore and Boston. I won the "Resident of the Year" Award and acted as academic chief resident as a senior. I was accepted to the only osteopathic hand and upper extremity fellowship in the country with H. Brent Bamberger, DO, FAOAO and his colleagues in Dayton, OH. While at Ohio University - Grandview Medical Center, I honed my surgical and office skills in a variety of shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand ailments. I performed over 700 surgeries in that year and finished in July 2015. I also published articles in the Journal of Hand Surgery, Orthopedics, and AAOS Now. I have given presentations across the country and am constantly going to courses to learn more about the latest breakthroughs and research in hand surgery. I am excited to be a part of the Lehigh Valley, where my wife trained in Emergency Medicine. We live in Allentown and have two young girls, Helen and Lily, and son, Colin.
I focus on delivering exceptional care to every patient I encounter. I am exceedingly attentive to detail and prides myself on treating every patient like a member of his own family. I enjoy getting to know their history. I have a holistic philosophy and am enthusiastic about spending time educating patients and their families so they can be actively involved and informed in making medical and surgical decisions. My goal is for my patients to understand their disease process and conservatively treat their discomfort until we have exhausted all options before surgery is the answer. We will work together with our certified hand therapists before and after surgery to get the patient the best result possible. I have been described by my colleagues as possessing dedication, energy, kindness and empathy, as well as being intuitive and possessing innovative problem-solving and surgical skills.

Why It Matters: Dr. Sibley's Board Certifications
Board certification should be one of your top considerations when choosing a doctor. Board certification is an official recognition given to doctors who have met specific requirements set by national medical specialty boards in the United States.
Board certification indicates that a doctor is highly qualified in the medical field in which he or she practices. A board-certified doctor is more likely than a non-board-certified doctor to have the most current skills and knowledge about how to treat your medical condition.

Malpractice Claims not available
Healthgrades does not collect malpractice information for Pennsylvania.
What is medical malpractice?
Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
If my doctor has malpractice history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact the quality of care you receive. Claim settlements and arbitration awards may occur for a variety of reasons, which should not necessarily reflect negatively on the doctor's professional competence or conduct. You may want to use this information to start a discussion with the doctor about his or her history and specific ability to provide healthcare for you.
How far back does Healthgrades malpractice history go?
Healthgrades reports details of a doctor’s malpractice history when the doctor has at least one closed medical malpractice claim within the last five years, even if he or she no longer practices in that state.
For which states does Healthgrades collect malpractice history?
Healthgrades collects malpractice information from California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia. If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact your quality of care. Sometimes multiple states report the same claim. If a provider practices in a state where data is unavailable, please reach out to your local state legislature to help make this data publicly available.
No sanctions history found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What is a sanction or disciplinary action?
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?
Healthgrades reports state and federal sanctions from the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
For which states does Healthgrades collect sanction history?
Healthgrades collects sanction history from all 50 U.S. states. Physicians with a disciplinary action in one state may move to another state where they have a clean record. Since Healthgrades painstakingly compiles disciplinary action information from all 50 states, Healthgrades website will show if a physician has a disciplinary action in more than one state.
0 Board Actions
No board actions found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What are board actions?
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor's board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades non-disciplinary board action history go?
Healthgrades reports non-disciplinary board action history from for the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
For which states does Healthgrades collect non-disciplinary board actions?
Healthgrades collects non-disciplinary board actions from all 50 U.S. states.
