After medical school, Dr. Karadsheh was accepted into the Harvard Orthopaedic Residency program where he worked at Massachusetts General Hospital, currently the #1 hospital in the country. Following residency, Dr. Karadsheh was accepted to train under Dr. Berger, Dr. Paprosky, and Dr. Rosenberg at Rush University’s Adult Reconstruction Fellowship. During this time, he learned how to perform minimally invasive hip and knee replacements as well as complex revisions for infection, fracture, and pain. Between his residency and his fellowship, Dr. Karadsheh has trained at three of the top ten orthopaedic hospitals in the nation.

Through his affiliations with the Harvard, Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush, and now William Beaumont Hospital, Dr. Karadsheh has looked to advance research in joint replacement technology and clinical outcomes. Previous research includes hip replacements in patients with Parkinson’s disease and the optimal treatment of fractures around hip and knee replacements. Current research interests include pain control and infection prevention in total joint replacement. Dr. Karadsheh is an active member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons, The Michigan State Medical Society, and the Michigan Orthopaedic Society.

Currently, Dr. Karadsheh sees patients at Performance Orthopedics and Troy Beaumont, and operates at both Troy Beaumont and Royal Oak Beaumont.

Operations performed include:

  • Minimally invasive hip replacements
  • Minimally invasive knee replacements
  • Minimally invasive partial knee replacements
  • Minimally invasive patellofemoral joint replacements
  • Revision of previous hip and knee replacements for
    • pain
    • infection
    • implant malpositioning
    • implant malfunctioning
    • fracture
    • loosening
    • wear

Before pursuing an operation, Dr. Karadsheh will exhaust all non-operative measures including:

  • medication for pain relief
  • activity modification
  • injections into the hip and knee joint
  • bracing

In the clinic, Dr. Karadsheh’s goal is to make sure all non-operative forms of treatment have been considered before rushing patients to surgery. In addition, he thinks it is essential that the patient has an adequate understanding of the pain they are experiencing and what to expect from treatment. In the operating room, Dr. Karadsheh’s goals are to minimize perioperative pain and provide shorter recovery times to maximize function and restore an active lifestyle.

Whether this is your first visit to an orthopaedic surgeon or you are seeking a second opinion, Dr. Karadsheh will make sure all of your questions are answered before you leave the office.
