Orthopedic Surgeon

Paul E. Papierski, MD

Dr. Paul Papierski

Dr. Papierski thrives on helping his patients, particularly injured workers and others who have suffered traumatic injuries, return to peak form. Often he sees patients whose complex conditions have previously resulted in less than optimal outcomes and then works with them to formulate a new treatment plan.

As a certified Independent Medical Examiner and a retired 20-year veteran of the U.S. Air Force, he has extensive experience evaluating musculoskeletal injuries and disabilities, as well as an appreciation for the psychological toll they can exact. Dr. Papierski treats all conditions of the hand, elbow, and shoulder and has special expertise in sports injuries. He speaks medical Spanish.
