UR Medicine/Highland Hospital recently welcomed physician Nathan Kaplan as assistant professor in the department of orthopedics and rehabilitation. Kaplan is an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in total knee replacements and total hip replacements. He will see patients and perform surgery at Highland Hospital and will also see patients at UR Medicine Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation in Victor.
Kaplan recently completed a fellowship in orthopedic surgery at Indiana University School of Medicine. He finished his residency in orthopedic surgery at the University of Rochester Medical Center in 2018 and earned his Doctor of Medicine from the University at Buffalo in 2013.
“Dr. Kaplan has outstanding clinical skills, an outstanding bedside manner, and is a lifelong Rochesterian. He will be a tremendous addition to the outstanding joint replacement team at the Evarts Joint Replacement Center,” said physician Paul Rubery, professor and chairman of the department of orthopedics and director of the UR Medicine Musculoskeletal Institute.
“Dr. Kaplan will make an excellent addition to our orthopedic team,” said physician Bilal Ahmed, associate medical director for Highland Hospital. “Highland’s Evarts Joint Center, staffed by UR Medicine surgeons, is the only total joint surgery center in the region where every surgeon has completed a fellowship, the highest level of training available. We’re proud that Dr. Kaplan continues in that tradition.”
