Dr. Trale's bio
This content was provided by Dr. Trale "I began my career in medicine as an Occupational Therapist. My constant desire to learn an be more directly involved in my patients care lead me to Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine where I earned a Medical Degree in Osteopathic Medicine along with a Masters of Science in Medical Education. I then went on to Millcreek Community Hospital in Erie, Pa where I served as Chief Resident and Continued on to complete a residency in Orthopedic Surgery. I then began my professional career at the Center for Orthopedics and Sports Medicine in Indiana, PA. Upon Dr. Brian Gunnlaugson's decision to begin retirement I have now assumed his practice in Johnstown, PA. I currently see patients in both the Indiana and Johnstown offices. I am currently operating at Indiana Regional Medical Center, Chan Soon Shiong Medical Center at Windber, and Miners Medial Center."
This content was provided by Dr. Trale "I like to listen to my patients so I have a thorough understanding of their concerns and expectations. My goal is to get you back to the lifestyle and activities that you enjoy. I employ what ever option is most appropriate for your specific condition form the most conservative to all surgical options.
I also understand that treating a patient requires looking beyond the diagnosis and treatment. Often times a treatment plan has to include the patient, employment, family, insurance and financial circumstances. Therefore, I like treat the "whole picture".
I have a special interest in total knee replacements, total hip replacements and shoulder surgery including total shoulders.
I, along with my staff, spend extra time educating patients and family about their surgical procedure and help them make the necessary plans for a successful recovery."
