Dr. Gambacorta is a board certified, fellowship trained orthopaedic surgeon with sub specializations in hip arthroscopy, and pediatric and adolescent sports medicine. His journey into sports medicine began in high school, when he did an internship at a local hospital. Dr. Gambacorta is committed to educating and communicating with patients in a way that empowers you to clearly understand your condition and treatment options. He loves taking care of patients, and the reward of taking something that is broken and fixing it, then seeing his patients go on to live pain-free lives.

When Dr. Gambacorta isn’t at work, he’s running around with his wife, three children, and two dogs. He spends his winters skiing and his summers on the water, and loves coaching his children’s sports teams or cheering them on from the sidelines. He was born and raised in the Buffalo area, and after training in several other cities has been back since 2010. In fact, he now operates in the same hospital he was born!
