Dr. MICHAEL J. MORGENSTERN
I’m an Orthopedic Surgeon with over 30 years experience specializing in shoulders, knees and spine.
I was referred to Mike George Fitness System for a chronic shoulder problem that was the result of a serious injury. Prior to coming to MGFS the injury forced me to retire from surgery and to sell my sail boat. My injury wasn’t fixed through Physical Therapy but responded very well to the blended methods of treatment at MGFS. Thanks to this special form of therapy I was successful in getting better, resuming my practice and am even sailing again – this is why I have partnered with this fabulous team!
Life changing experience:
Helping children with curved spines. Correcting scoliosis in young children, really was. When I trained to do that and after I did my first one I cried.
Difficult personal experience:
Taking sick was my most challenging professional experience because I had to leave my practice. I got a second chance – I had a liver transplant in 2013.
Anything can happen to you without warning. Being alive is my success story. I live my life differently now- I’ve become a ‘momentarian’!
In five years I see myself:
Sailing a 70 foot sloop… to where I’m needed professionally.
I help the collaborative environment of MGFS deliver a ‘total wellness picture’ through overseeing and collaborating with everyone on the team.
