Jack Goldstein, MD graduated from the University of
California at Davis with a BA in Physiology in 1975. After two years of
medical research, and graduate work in mechanical engineering, he
received his MD from U.C. Davis in 1982.
His interest in orthopedic surgery developed because of his broad
background, which included teaching woodworking and joinery at U.C.
Davis, conducting biomedical research, as well as mechanical engineering
coursework. After two years of general surgery, he completed an
orthopedic surgical residency at Rutgers University in 1988. This
fellowship was completed in 1989. He practiced sports medicine and
general orthopedics from 1989 through 1991 in Hawaii, and then moved and
continued to practice in Providence, Rhode Island.
Goldstein has extensive orthopedic sports medicine experience. He
specializes in arthroscopic ligament reconstruction of the knee and
shoulder, and arthroscopy of all joints. He also has extensive
experience in total joint replacement, fracture care, and reconstructive
treatment of deformity and length discrepancy using Ilizaroff
techniques. He has a very broad experience because of training and
practice in several states. In addition, Hawaii presented an unusual
breadth of problems and experiences, including treatment of polio
patients, and severe limb deformities referred from the far East.
