When I graduated from the University of Witwatersrand Medical School in Johannesburg, South Africa, I knew that I wanted to specialize in orthopedic surgery. I had been influenced and taught by some world-renowned surgeons including Professor Louis Solomon - the chairman of orthopedics. Professor Solomon instilled in me the importance of how the muscular skeletal system functions and impressed upon me that there was a tremendous future in perfecting the development of ‘artificial joints’. I continued my studies and completed an internship at the Prince of Wales Hospital in Sydney, Australia,

The time I spent in Australia was an excellent learning experience and it prepared me well for the rigors of my residency in general surgery and orthopedic surgery at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Montefiore Hospital and Medical Center in New York. It was there that I learned how to become a skilled orthopedic surgeon. New York is a city that has a vast amount of patients who need reconstructive surgery and thus afforded me to gain an incredible amount of ‘hands on’ experience during my training. During my tenure at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, I was also fortunate to have had the opportunity to study with the best orthopedics consultants from St. Thomas Hospital in London, England. Upon completion of my Orthopedic Surgery Residency, I moved to Miami where I pursued my interest in total joint replacements. Over the past 25 years, I have immersed myself in the progress and the latest and updated techniques of performing this surgery, thus affording my patients the best possible results.

About Dr. Koonin
where I met some very fine surgeons. My registrar and mentor was Dr. David Grosser who I believe has ‘hands of gold’. He is an extremely talented surgeon who infused into me the adage of “respect soft tissue and do not rush surgery”.
