Stanley E. Asnis, M.D. ?Board-certified Orthopaedic Surgeon

Dr. Asnis received his. M.D. degree from Washington University School of Medicine in 1968. He completed his internship and two years of General Surgery Residency at the New York Hospital, Cornell University Medical Center, in 1971; and both his Orthopaedic Residency and Fellowship in Orthopaedic Research at the Hospital for Special Surgery in 1975. He was awarded the Lewis Clark Wagner Research Award from the Hospital for Special Surgery and the National Frank E. Stinchfield Hip Society Award for his research in hip fractures.

Dr. Asnis started his practice in Orthopaedic Surgery in 1975. His special interests lie in biomechanics and the development of orthopaedic systems for fracture fixation and total hip and knee replacements.
