Dr. Hawk is Secretary of OAA Orthopaedic Specialists and recognized as a Top Doctor in Orthopedics by U.S. News & World Report.
A second-generation orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. Hawk learned patient care from his father, who formerly treated pro football players. His involvement in competitive sports, including rugby and tennis, has led to his interest in treating acute and chronic sports-related injuries.
Dr. Hawk supervises athletic programs in two area high schools and the Force Sports gymnastic program. He also cared for athletes on the Canadian National Freestyle Ski Team, and formerly served as the lead team orthopaedic surgeon for the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, a professional hockey team associated with the Philadelphia Flyers.
During his sports medicine fellowship, he developed an interest in the surgical management of shoulder injuries, including arthritis, rotator cuff and instability problems. Dr. Hawk now devotes half of his practice to shoulder problems and the remainder to elbow, knee, and ankle injuries. He is active in joint replacement for arthritic shoulders and knees, and also performs anterior total hip replacements.
Dr. Hawk helps train physician assistant students at DeSales University, Penn State medical students, Lehigh Valley Hospital residents and Jefferson University orthopaedic surgery residents.
