Brandon L.

He is an expert in minimally invasive arthroscopic and open surgery of the shoulder and elbow. He has expertise in advanced shoulder and elbow reconstructive surgery, including shoulder replacement surgery, rotator cuff tear surgery, shoulder instability and labral tear surgery, elbow arthroscopy, and elbow ligament reconstruction and repair. Dr. Rogalski's practice leverages advanced imaging modalities to create personalized treatment plans for shoulder and elbow reconstructive surgery. He uses cutting-edge techniques for sports injuries, such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP), ultrasound, and up-and-coming physical therapy and rehabilitation techniques such as blood flow restriction (BFR) therapy and cryotherapy.

Dr. Rogalski attended Washington University in St. Louis, where he received his B.A. and graduated with honors in the Department of Political Science. While at Washington University, he played on both the varsity football and baseball teams, where he was a two-time NCAA All-American and Academic All-American pitcher and outfielder. He then completed medical school at Washington University in St. Louis School of Medicine, where he was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha (AOA) medical honor society and graduated in the top of his class, earning multiple academic awards. Dr. Rogalski completed his orthopedic surgery residency at the Rothman Orthopedic Institute at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, PA where he worked closely with the team doctors taking care of the Philadelphia Eagles (NFL), Phillies (MLB) and 76ers (NBA). Following residency, he completed a fellowship in shoulder and elbow surgery at Columbia University in New York City. The fellowship, founded in 1977 by Dr. Charles S. Neer II, is honored as the first and most prestigious program of its kind in the world. During his fellowship, he served as a Fellow Team Physician with the New York Yankees (MLB) baseball team, where he worked directly with the Head Team Physician, Dr. Christopher Ahmad, assessing and operating on numerous professional athletes throughout the year.

Dr. Rogalski's special areas of interest include total joint replacement surgery of the shoulder and elbow; surgical and non-surgical treatment of all shoulder and elbow disorders; sports medicine for overhead and throwing athletes, including baseball, softball, tennis, track & field, and golf; and arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder, elbow, and scapula. He also has expertise in revision surgery for previously failed shoulder and elbow procedures and proficiency in treating upper extremity fractures, including the proximal humerus, collarbone (clavicle), scapula, humerus, elbow, and forearm.

Dr. Rogalski has a passion for research and has published numerous peer-reviewed articles and book chapters on various topics related to shoulder, elbow, and sports medicine surgery. Dr. Rogalski's ongoing research is focused on improving patient outcomes by improving the longevity and durability of shoulder arthroplasty implants, identifying and minimizing the effect of shoulder prosthetic joint infections, and improving ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) surgery outcomes in throwing athletes.
