About Dr. Lambe


†††††††††† I am a medical doctor and Orthopedic surgeon who has been practicing in South Florida for more than 20 years.† I attended college at the State University of New York at Stony Brook and then received my medical training at Downstate Medical School in Brooklyn, graduating with honors.† I did my orthopedic surgical residency at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital and I am board certified in Orthopedic Surgery.† As I previously mentioned, Iíve been in private practice now for quite a few years and Iíve treated literally thousands of patients.


†††††††††† On a day to day basis, my practice involves treating broken bones, and performing operations, including total joint replacements and arthroscopy, as well as treating common musculoskeletal aches and pains. Just as many people greatly enjoy arts and crafts such as painting, model building or woodworking, I truly love performing surgery.† To me, a scalpel is like a paint brush, and a well performed surgery is a work of art.† That said, however, I am also acutely aware of the potentially disastrous complications of surgery that are beyond the power of the surgeon to completely prevent.† Throughout my career I have always treated patients under the principle that in most circumstances, in which life or limb are not threatened, surgery should be the treatment of last resort.† I have constantly searched for effective and safe nonsurgical ways to help relieve pain and return my patients to optimal health, and I would never recommend surgery to a patient who might do just as well with an alternative treatment.
