I am a fellowship trained Orthopedic surgeon sub specialized in shoulder and elbow surgery. I am originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania but have been in Ohio for a majority of my Orthopedic training and practice. My past experiences with sports, nutrition, personal training, weight training and a healthy lifestyle has given me the ability to relate and treat my patients. My fellowship training in shoulder and elbow surgery in Tampa, Florida laid the foundation of my practice today. I treat and care for patients with any and all types of shoulder and elbow disorders. I perform the typical shoulder and elbow surgeries such as conventional total shoulder and reverse shoulder replacement, elbow replacement, arthroscopy with rotator cuff repairs and labral repair, ligament reconstruction and fracture repair. I have been performing new advanced procedures on younger patients with end stage glenohumeral arthritis. These procedures include the arthroscopic biologic total shoulder resurfacing with fresh osteochondral allograft and total shoulder resurfacing with Arthrosurface. I have seen very impressive early results. I also perform other procedures arthroscopically that many surgeons still perform open such as massive rotator cuff tears, bone and tendon transfers, fracture fixation and so on.

Dr. Kovack's Care Philosophy
As an Orthopedic surgeon specializing in shoulder and elbow surgery I believe it is my responsibility to help my patients with their conditions with the most latest, innovative and minimally invasive procedures available. An example of this would be the first arthroscopic biologic total shoulder replacement that I performed in Columbus, Ohio in March of 2013 and continue to perform on patients that are suitable candidates for the procedure.
