Jack D. Goldstein, MD

Sports Medicine Surgeon

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 UC 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 Ilizarov 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.
