Lower Limb Reconstruction & Oncology
Vancouver – Vancouver General Hospital
Dr. Michael Neufeld joined the Division of Lower Limb Reconstruction & Oncology at UBC in January of 2021 where he specializes in primary and complex hip and knee arthroplasty.
Following completion of his medical degree at the University of Toronto, he completed his residency in Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of British Columbia. He then went on to complete a sub-specialty Hip and Knee Reconstruction Fellowship at the University of Western Ontario where he was trained in all aspects of joint replacement, including modern minimally invasive approaches to hip replacement. During his fellowship year he also completed a Master of Science Degree with a focus on periprosthetic joint infection.
Dr. Neufeld was awarded the Hip Society / M.E. Müller Foundation of North America European Fellowship and used this opportunity to travel to the world-renowned ENDO-Klinik in Hamburg, Germany. There he gained valuable training in the one-stage approach to periprosthetic joint infections, multidisciplinary team care for septic patients, as well as other complex problems around the hip and knee.
His primary research interests are periprosthetic joint infection and outcomes in joint replacement. He will offer an alternative approach to hip replacement in our unit. Additionally, he is engaged in the development of a multidisciplinary periprosthetic joint infection unit and hopes to establish UBC as a leader in single-stage septic revisions and periprosthetic joint infection.
He is honored to join mentors and faculty at UBC and will strive to continue the tradition of excellence in surgery, research, and education.
