Ken Egol primarily works with people who have experienced trauma, which can range from an ankle sprain or a broken hip to multiple fractures caused by a car accident.
During his residency training, Ken was drawn to treating orthopaedic trauma after seeing people recover from serious injuries with help from orthopaedic surgeons. Those doctors were able to restore their patients’ physical capabilities and their quality of life.
He regularly collaborates with other physicians and healthcare professionals, including physical therapists who design rehabilitation programs for people after surgery. He also works with rheumatologists, who help patients prevent future fractures through additional therapy that includes infusions and medications.
In addition to treating patients, Ken also teaches medical students and residents, he is the director of the orthopaedic surgery residency program at NYU School of Medicine. Medical education is extremely important to him. He always wanted to pursue an academic career, in addition to caring for patients.
Ken is a three-time recipient of the “Teacher of the Year” award presented by orthopaedic surgery residents at NYU Langone Orthopaedic Hospital.
