Sean T. Campbell, MD Specialties: Orthopedic Surgery
About Sean T. Campbell, MD
Dr. Sean Campbell is an orthopedic trauma surgeon and an Assistant Attending at Hospital for Special Surgery and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. He specializes in the treatment of acute fractures of the upper and lower extremity, pelvis, and acetabulum. He also treats fractures that have had problems healing, healed incorrectly, or become infected (nonunion, malunion, osteomyelitis).
Dr. Campbell's philosophy is to help patients get back to their activities by first providing them with the most relevant and recent information about their injury, as well as listening to the patient and understanding their lifestyle. The resulting care and treatment plan will be a mutually informed, joint decision with the patient whether it is surgical or non-operative management. He strives to treat every patient as he would a family member.
A California native, Dr. Campbell grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and attended Fresno State University for his undergraduate studies and University of California Irvine for his medical degree, where he was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. Following medical school, he completed residency in orthopedic surgery at Stanford University in Palo Alto, CA. He then completed an additional year of subspecialty training in orthopedic traumatology as a clinical fellow at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, WA. At Harborview, the only level I trauma center in the Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho region, he gained experience treating complex periarticular fractures, fractures of the pelvis and acetabulum, non- and malunions, and critically injured polytrauma patients.
Dr. Campbell is active academically, and has presented at the Orthopaedic Trauma Association and American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons annual meetings. He has published over thirty-five papers in peer-reviewed journals focusing on optimizing surgical techniques in fracture care, patient outcomes, and orthopedic education.
