Having conducted well over 10,000 surgeries, Dr. Robert Klapper is regarded as one of the most respected Orthopedic surgeons in the world.
Building and crafting with his hands at an early age, Dr. Klapper learned carpentry from his father, while his mother’s career as a nurse piqued his interest to join the medical field. Combining his passion for sculpting and medicine, he went onto study Orthopedics at Columbia University, Cornell, UCLA and the renowned Cedars-Sinai Hospital, where he operates today.
A leader in minimally invasive surgical technique, Dr. Klapper is one of the few surgeons in the world who performs Arthroscopy, a surgery which helps to prevent hip replacement. Holding an impressive nine patents on specially designed instruments used for procedures, he is also a celebrated author with “Heal Your Knees” and “Heal Your Hips.”
In the spotlight, he served as the orthopedic consultant on the hit TV series “ER” and is the co-host of ESPN Radio’s Weekend Warrior. A regular contributor to Fantasy Football Uncensored on Fox Sports, numerous professional athletes and superstars have Dr. Klapper to thank for their well-being.
Traveling to Italy each year, Dr. Klapper practices his sculpting skills with marble. From the art studio where he creates sculptures, to the operating room where he sculpts the body, Dr. Robert Klapper is the Michelangelo of medicine and orthopedics.
