Dr. David P. Rudman Orthopaedic Specialist

Himself an avid athlete and sports fan, Dr. David P. Rudman’s orthopaedics specialty resulted from his own childhood sports injury.  The technically excellent, thoughtful, and attentive care he received then—yes, he can ski again—is what he is prepared to share with you now.


Dr. Rudman’s practice model allows him to give his patients as much time and attention as each one needs.  He believes that listening to the stories patients tell can offer important clues for their treatment, and he considers family members a critical part of patient care. Dr. Rudman acts on the belief that being available to his patients and their families is one of the most important services a caring physician can provide.
