Jonathan B. Ticker, M.D.
Dr. Ticker is a board-certified and fellowship trained shoulder and sports medicine specialist who treats both non-operative and operative conditions of the shoulder. When surgery is indicated, he focuses on minimally invasive arthroscopic procedures for the shoulder repair to aid in return of function.
An accomplished medical researcher, author and international lecturer, Dr. Ticker also has served as an orthopedic and sports medicine advisor to numerous professional, collegiate and youth athletic teams.
A respected member of The Orlin & Cohen Orthopedic Group's sports medicine team, Dr. Ticker completed both his orthopedic residency and a research fellowship in shoulder biomechanics at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center. He later completed a fellowship in sports medicine/shoulder at the University of Pittsburgh's Center for Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation.
"As stated by Dr. Charles D. Mayo: 'The safest thing for a patient is to be in the hands of a man engaged in teaching medicine. In order to be a teacher of medicine, the doctor must always be a student." (Proceedings of the Staff Meetings of the Mayo Clinic 2:233, 1927) I continually learn, and teach, the most advanced practices in shoulder surgery, so I can offer my patients the best chances for a successful outcome."
