Physician Bio

Dr. Ashkenaze believes in helping people live happier, healthier lives. He feels the intellectual challenge of science and medicine is stimulating. He enjoys being able to get to know each person, helping them understand and successfully treat their illnesses. He treats each person as if they were a family member.

Getting to know each patient personally, properly diagnosing their condition, offering treatment options, and following them through to their full recovery.

Orthopaedic surgery is a constantly evolving field that allows me to treat many conditions either medically or through minimally-invasive approaches and moreso than in other areas of medicine, return people to their full state of health and activity. This is very satisfying to me.

Cooking, classical music and opera, as well as travel with my wife Mary Kaye and daughter Kerry (17) and son Joshua(13).
