DR MICHAEL K GILBART | M.D., M. Ed., F.R.C.S.(C)

Dr. Gilbart combines clinical and operative practices dedicated to complex disorders of the shoulder, knee, hip, and elbow (focused on arthroscopic joint reconstruction), with outcomes based research programs and teaching.

An Assistant Professor at the University of British Columbia (UBC), he holds appointments to the Division of Athletic Injuries and Arthroscopy and the Division of Upper Extremity Surgery in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery. Dr. Gilbart is a member of the Canadian Orthopaedic Association, American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, American Orthopedic Society for Sports Medicine and the Canadian Association of Sports Medicine.

The outcomes-based research programs that he is involved with at UBC include hip labral pathology and arthroscopic treatment and repair, meniscal root tears, shoulder instability and rotator cuff repair, and ulnar collateral ligament injury of the elbow in throwing athletes. A particular research interest is in the use of simulation (both high and low fidelity) for the training and acquisition of technical skill in surgery. As an educator with a Masters degree in Surgical Education from the University of Toronto, he teaches at the undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate levels.

Dr. Gilbart's clinical practice is based at the Joint Preservation Centre at UBC and his operative practice is based at the Vancouver Hospital - UBC site as well as the Cambie Surgery Centre. He is a consultant for the UBC Athletic Teams, as well as other amateur teams including the Vancouver Giants hockey team.

Dr. Gilbart completed his medical school training and his orthopaedic surgery residency training at the University of Toronto in 2002.  Subspecialty orthopaedic training, including fellowships in shoulder reconstruction and arthroscopic sports medicine surgery, took place at the University of Zurich, Harvard University Shoulder Service, and at the University of Pittsburgh Sports Medicine Program.
