Mike Walsh, MD, Orthopaedic Surgeon, Shoulder Specialist, TRIA Orthopaedic Center

Mike Walsh, MD

Orthopedic Surgeon - Shoulder


I am board certified and double fellowship trained in shoulder surgery and sports medicine. This dual training has helped me treat athletes and non-athletes with advanced minimally invasive techniques and return them quickly to pain-free function. It is gratifying to see highly motivated athletes and non-athletes alike return to pain-free activity. I am lead author of two ongoing shoulder studies at TRIA on rotator cuff repair, and I am also the lead investigator on a shoulder fracture outcomes study.
