Partial knee replacement
Dr. Waligora grew up in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, a city 67 miles east of Pittsburgh. He spent numerous weekends as a child traveling to Pittsburgh to watch the Panthers, Pirates, Penguins, and Steelers with his parents and sister. After graduating from Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia, he and his wife Angela moved to Gainesville, Florida to begin his residency at the University of Florida Department of Orthopaedics.
During residency, Dr. Waligora was named “Outstanding Resident Educator” twice, elected the department representative for the American Orthopaedic Association resident leadership forum, served as the state of Florida’s resident representative at the National Orthopaedic Leadership Conference, and was recognized for his patient service on several occasions. The research projects he developed during his residency won several awards and have been presented at the state, national, and international levels.
In order to gain the expertise required to provide comprehensive hip and knee arthroplasty services, Dr. Waligora completed the VCU-Medical College of Virginia Adult Reconstruction Fellowship. During this year, he received exposure to a variety of complex cases. He also developed research and clinical interests that included: appropriate surgical indications, pre-operative optimization, post-operative pain management, partial joint replacement, nanosensor technology, primary hip and knee replacement, revision hip and knee replacement, and the treatment of prosthetic joint infections.
