Dr. Seth Jerabek is a specialist in hip and knee musculoskeletal care, including joint preserving procedures, joint replacement, and complex revision joint replacement. His practice is focused on individuals of all ages who are seeking to get back to an active lifestyle.

 

Dr. Jerabek has diverse and extensive training. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin with Honors in biochemistry. He then attended the University of Michigan Medical School, graduating Cum Laude. He completed his residency training at Harvard where he became interested in the biomechanics and reconstruction of both native and replaced joints, which inspired him to pursue subspecialty training in two areas. 

He completed his first fellowship in Adult Reconstruction and Joint Replacement at the Hospital for Special Surgery, where he received the Clinical Excellence Award. His second fellowship was in Sports Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital, where he had the opportunity to be a member of the medical staff for several professional sports teams.

Dr. Jerabek takes an individual approach to treating each patient with the goal of reducing pain and optimizing function.
