Dr. Grant Garcia is a 4th year Orthopedic Resident at Hospital For Special Surgery.  He spent his undergraduate years at Brown University where he was captain of the swim team.  Dr. Garcia graduated from University of Pennsylvania Medical School in 2012 and is currently applying for a sports medicine fellowship.

Dr. Garcia’s primary research focus is sports shoulder research.  He has been involved with a number of projects pertaining to shoulder instability research.  A sub-focus has been work involving the remplissage procedure in which he has published numerous manuscripts.  He is currently researching ways to improve the accuracy of remplissage and develop improved selection criteria.

A secondary research passion has been evaluation of return to sports after shoulder arthroplasty.  He has published multiple studies on return to sports after reverse total shoulder arthroplasty, hemiarthroplasty and total shoulder arthroplasty.  He hopes these studies will allow orthopedic surgeons to better counsel patients preoperatively.  He is passionate about improving orthopedics through research and hopes to continue this work through fellowship and beyond.
