John Herzenberg, Abstract

Biographical Details

Dr John Herzenberg graduated from Boston University Medical School and trained at Duke University for Orthopaedics and Toronto Sick Kids for Pediatric Orthopaedics. He specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of adult and pediatric patients with congenital abnormalities, joint contractures, neuromuscular disorders, non-unions, malunions, deformity, and bone defects. He is in demand worldwide as a speaker and has more than 110 PubMed papers listed to his credit. Dr J Herzenberg is married to Merrill Chaus, RN. They have three daughters. Since 1998, he and his family have volunteered yearly with Operation Rainbow, providing free orthopaedic surgery to underprivileged children in Central and South America, and Haiti. In 1997, Dr J Herzenberg learned an old, ignored conservative technique for clubfoot treatment called the Ponseti method. He enthusiastically embraced this method, and his efforts in teaching this method have helped turn the tide from surgery to casting for babies with clubfoot.
