SCH welcomes Dr. Michael Mason to its Medical Staff

Published 11/12/2021

Dr. Michael Mason is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon with Ortho Rhode Island who specializes in total joint replacement of the hip and knee, including robotic-assisted, as well as replacement of the shoulder.

He earned his Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1987. He then completed his residency in orthopedic surgery at Community General Osteopathic Hospital in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and his fellowship training at Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, affiliates of Harvard Medical School.

In addition to working with patients, Dr. Mason is a member of the Walk Strong Foundation, a nonprofit humanitarian organization that provides hip and knee replacements to underserved communities in economically challenged developing countries.

Dr. Mason practices orthopedics and total joint replacement because of the challenge and rewards they offer. He finds it gratifying to be able to help relieve patients’ pain, and to assist them in restoring normal function to their lives. 

He also has a strong interest in biomechanics and material science, and has both designed and been on the design teams of multiple medical implants and instruments that are used worldwide.
