Biography:

Andrew Green, MD is the Chief of the Division of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery and an Associate Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery of the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. Dr. Green is a fellowship trained specialist in problems of the shoulder, elbow and upper extremity. He is an internationally recognized expert in shoulder and elbow surgery and is certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery (www.ABOS.org) in Orthopaedic Surgery and Orthopaedic Sports Medicine. He is a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the American Orthopaedic Association, the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (link), New England Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons, and the Orthopaedic Trauma Association. He has been recognized as a “Top Doctor” and is listed in the Guide to America’s Top Orthopedists, and Who’s Who in America.

Each year he evaluates more than one thousand new patients and performs over 400 arthroscopic, reconstructive, joint replacement, and trauma surgeries for a broad spectrum of shoulder and elbow disorders (link to list of types of surgery). Most commonly, he treats patients for rotator cuff disorders (impingement syndrome and tears), shoulder dislocations and instability, labral tears, arthritis, fractures and sports injuries, using minimally invasive arthroscopic techniques and both standard and reverse total shoulder replacement. Dr. Green is an attending surgeon at Rhode Island Hospital and The Miriam Hospital in Providence, Rhode Island, and a consultant at the Providence V.A. Medical Center. To learn more about Dr. Green and his approach to treating patients, click here.

In addition to treating patients, he is actively involved in research and the education of present and future orthopaedic surgeons. He is the director of the Brown University Shoulder and Elbow Fellowship, and medical director of the arthroscopy bioskills laboratory in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery. His research has focused on the clinical outcomes of shoulder and elbow surgery and arthroscopic rotator cuff surgery. He is the author of over 200 articles, book chapters, and scientific presentations regarding the shoulder and elbow, and frequently presents and teaches at national and international meetings and courses. He has served on a number of national orthopaedic committees. He is involved in the development of instrumentation and implants for shoulder and elbow surgery.

Dr Green is the Deputy Editor for Shoulder and Elbow for the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, as well as a consultant reviewer for the Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery, Techniques in Shoulder and Elbow Surgery, The Journal of Orthopaedic Trauma, and Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research.

Dr Green graduated from Princeton University where he majored in biology and was a varsity wrestler.  He graduated from the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University and trained as a resident in orthopaedic surgery at Brown University.  In addition, he further trained as a fellow in shoulder and upper extremity surgery with Tom Norris and Relton McCarroll in San Francisco.
