Wednesday, July 24, 2013 - Robert Duarte, MD, Joins Orthopaedic Specialists

Memorial Medical Group welcomes Robert Duarte, MD, an orthopaedic surgeon with total joint specialization, to their staff.  He will join orthopaedic surgeons Drs. Brett Cascio, Nathan Cohen, Paul Fenn and Lawrence Weber; orthopaedic trauma surgeon Dr. Thomas W. Axelrad; and physiatrist Dr. Michael Lane, on the staff of Orthopaedic Specialists. 

Dr. Duarte received his bachelors degree from Nova Southeastern University in his hometown of Fort Lauderdale, Florida where he also served as a teaching assistant in both physics and organic chemistry.  He then received his medical degree from Florida State University College of Medicine in Tallahassee, and went on to complete his residency in orthopaedic surgery from Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in New Orleans, where he also served as a dissection lab instructor.  Most recently, Dr. Duarte returned to Florida to complete his fellowship in adult orthopaedic reconstruction and arthritis surgery from the Florida Orthopaedic Institute in Tampa.

As a total joint specialist, Dr. Duarte is experienced in joint reconstruction and replacement, and is trained in state of the art surgical technology including computer navigation and MAKO® robotic surgery.  He is also experienced in hip and knee resurfacing, osteotomy and muscle sparing surgical approaches, such as direct anterior hip replacement.  He has participated in research studies on osteoarthritis and total knee replacement. Although he specializes in total joint repair, Dr. Duarte will also be taking general orthopedic cases.
