Dr. Montalbano’s academic superiority was not only evident at the local level of his medical school; he also achieved distinction at a national level, scoring in the top 1% nationally on his national board examinations (a mandatory series of standardized examinations administered nationally that are required for medical licensing). With an outstanding academic performance through medical school and a top 1% national ranking on his national board examinations, Dr. Montalbano was able to select his residency training program from the best in the nation. He selected and went on to complete a one year general surgery internship at NYU, followed by a four year residency in orthopedic surgery at the prestigious and nationally recognized Hospital for Joint Disease in NYC. The Hospital for Joint Disease was at that time and remains a top ranked residency program that selected only 6 residents from an applicant pool of hundreds.

During his training at HJD, Dr. Montalbano received didactic and hands-on training with nationally and internationally recognized senior orthopedic surgeons considered the ‘best in their field’. Dr. Montalbano trained under the direct guidance of J. Zuckerman, MD, who is the now former president of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgery. Dr. Montalbano also elected to travel to the University of Washington Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, WA for specialized training in the surgical treatment of traumatic fractures and musculoskeletal trauma. This Level 1 trauma facility is rated as one of the busiest in the nation, receiving cases routinely by air transport from Washington, Montana, Idaho and Alaska. Routine traumatic injuries at this facility included high speed motorcycle and motor vehicle accidents, airplane accidents, industrial fishing, logging and farming accidents, and snow mobile, ski and mountain climbing accidents. During his training at this facility he worked directly with one of the foremost authorities in orthopedic trauma care, M. Swiontkowski, MD, who was the chief editor and a contributing author to the definitive textbook on this subject. Dr. Montalbano also worked with the Harkness Dance Center during his residency training, providing care to injured New York City dancers, including professional dancers for Alvin Ailey Dance Company and the American Ballet Theatre, among others. As a result of his work with the dance center, he completed a research paper that was awarded the Hospital for Joint Disease Senior Resident Research Award for excellence in clinical research.

Following graduation from HJD, Dr. Montalbano went on to additional training at Georgetown University/Arlington Hospital in arthroscopic surgery and joint reconstruction. During that time he was a team physician for George Mason University and provided field coverage for various NCAA Division 1 athletic events, including the 1998 NCAA Division 1 Basketball Playoffs in Washington DC.

Dr. Montalbano is currently a clinical assistant professor at New York University School of Medicine and is a faculty member at Hospital for Joint Disease. He maintains a busy clinical schedule at his three private offices and in addition maintains an academic schedule as a faculty member of NYU School of Medicine, attending national conferences regularly and providing surgical training to the residents at NYUHJD.
