Meet Dr. Fred Ginsberg
After completing his medical education at New York Medical College, Fred Ginsberg, M.D. completed a residency in Internal Medicine at Winthrop University Hospital in Mineola, NY. He then went on to complete a second residency in Anesthesiology at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, N.Y. where he also distinguished himself by being selected as Chief Resident. After residency, Dr. Ginsberg was appointed Clinical Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology at the State University of New York Stony Brook School of Medicine. Dr. Ginsberg is Board Certified in Anesthesiology. He practiced as an anesthesiologist for twelve years before transitioning his focus to Occupational Health in 1995. Dr. Ginsberg received a faculty appointment in the Department of Community and Family Medicine at Saint Louis University and served as a preceptor for residents and medical students in the Occupational Medicine residency program.
In 2002, Dr. Ginsberg became inspired by the work of world-renowned orthopedic surgeon Dr. David Waddell who had completed ground breaking research in the use of viscosupplementation and had presented his findings at the American College of Rheumatology's Fourth Annual Basic Research Conference entitled "Cartilage and Bone Biology: Implications in the Pathogenesis of Joint Destruction in Arthritis". Dr Ginsberg went to Loyola University in Chicago and received training in the treatment of osteoarthritis of the knee. He quickly became an expert in the field and was hired as a consultant for the COATS program for Sanofi-Aventis, traveling across the nation to train physicians.
Dr. Ginsberg opened the Center for Joint Therapy at Gateway Regional Medical Center in January, 2007. He has since treated more than four hundred patients with osteoarthritis of the knee and less than 15% have been referred for total knee replacement. Dr Ginsberg presents monthly seminars on his knee program to different community groups. He is a staff member of Gateway Regional Medical Center in Granite City. He is a member of the Osteoarthritis Research Society International (OARSI) and the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine. He is also certified by the MROCC Medical Review Officer Certification Council and most recently received the American Medical Association's Physicians Recognition Award for Continuing Medical Education.
