A Lifespan Physician Group Practice
Ross Budacki, MD
What drew you to orthopedic surgery?
In college I studied bioengineering and discovered my passion for solving problems. During my third year of medical school, I spent a month in a rotation with the orthopedic department. I realized then how well my passions for solving problems, fixing things, and helping people merged together in this one field.
What are your particular interests/expertise within the field?
My expertise is in orthopedic sports medicine. I completed my fellowship in this specialty at Brown University. I am also passionate about general orthopedic surgery and fracture care.
What do you enjoy about practicing medicine in a community like Newport?
I appreciate the warm and welcoming nature of the Newport community and the opportunity to get to know my patients. I also enjoy the beautiful setting of Newport, which lends itself to people living active, healthy lifestyles.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I enjoy spending time with my wife and young daughter: going for walks, taking bike rides, and exploring all the beautiful areas within New England. I also enjoy playing hockey and skiing/snowboarding.
