Michael P. Kowaleski


Michael P. Kowaleski


Mike has been an inspiration to so many young surgeons, setting the bar high with his research excellence, expert surgical skill, and his kind nature. He has been a supportive mentor to so many, with the ability to know when you need to be pushed past your comfort zone, yet always being there to catch you before you fall. I know that without his expert guidance/mentorship I would not be the surgeon I am today. Thank you for all you have done for the field of orthopedic surgery.

Mike was very influential in my development as a surgeon. My resident-mate and I modeled our professional careers after him. He was an inspiration to us during our residency and in our young professional careers. We owe a lot to him!
