Dr. Tom Minas is an attending orthopedic surgeon and the director of the cartilage repair center at the Paley Orthopedic & Spine Institute. He previously practiced at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston for 30 years and remains a professor emeritus of Orthopedic Surgery at Harvard Medical School.
Dr. Minas is an internationally recognized leader in the orthopedic field, specializing in joint preservation and cartilage repair of the knee. He adapted the ACI (autologous chondrocyte implantation) surgical technique, being the first to bring the practice to the United States from Sweden. He also established the first cartilage repair center in the United States.
Dr. Minas provides a personalized approach to each patient. With the patient, he determines each person’s activities and desires. This allows him to choose the most appropriate joint preserving or prosthetic solution to optimize the recovery and functional outcome of each patient, from cartilage and meniscal transplantation to custom printed knee joint replacement surgeries.
