Dr. Jordan Goldstein specializes in the treatment of shoulder, elbow, and knee conditions with advanced arthroscopic shoulder and knee ligament reconstructive techniques, shoulder replacement, and cartilage restoration.
A graduate of Washington University School of Medicine, Dr. Goldstein completed his orthopaedic residency at Rush University Medical Center, helping cover as the team physician for local high school and semi-professional teams. He then completed a sports fellowship at Emory University followed by three months of additional training in advanced shoulder reconstruction at the Florida Orthopaedic Institute. While in Atlanta, Dr. Goldstein served as assistant team physician for Emory University Baseball and Basketball as well as Georgia Tech Football, Basketball, and Baseball teams. Dr. Goldstein completed his undergraduate degree in Biological Basis of Behavior at the University of Pennsylvania, graduating magna cum laude.
Dr. Goldstein is board-certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery. He is an active member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine. He has taught as an associate master instructor for arthroscopic surgery techniques for the Arthroscopy Association of North America in addition to publishing several peer reviewed research articles and presenting didactic lectures. Dr. Goldstein has presented advanced arthroscopic video techniques to practicing surgeons at national meetings as well.
Dr. Goldstein has been recognized with hospital distinctions for his compassion and excellence in care of patients and prides himself on having the highest standards of respect and ethics for his patients. His goal is your goal – improved function, less pain and a better quality of life. Procedures such as arthroscopic rotator cuff repair of the shoulder, meniscal treatment, and ACL reconstruction of the knee are done on an outpatient basis. This minimizes post-operative pain, increases the potential for rehabilitation and can lead to a quicker recovery.
In addition to treating patients with sports injuries, Dr. Goldstein also commonly sees patients with work-related injuries to the shoulder, elbow, knee, and ankle. He performs Independent Medical Examinations and is certified to perform Impairment Ratings per the 6th Edition AMA Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment.
Dr. Goldstein enjoys spending time with his wife and two sons. He is a former national junior tennis player, and still enjoys getting out on the court.
