The Doctor


Years of practice supported
by a solid educational foundation.


Dr. Granatir graduated from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT); received medical training at Hahnemann Medical College in Philadelphia; and orthopedic training at Montefiore/Einstein University hospitals in Bronx, New York. Prior to establishing his independent practice, he worked at the Harvard University Community Health Plan in Brigham & Women’s Hospital, Beth Israel Hospital, and Parker Hill Hospital, all in Boston.


Dr. Granatir is a Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon committed to current best practices and medical knowledge in his specialty. Board Certification certifies competency by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgeons through a series of nationally administered written, oral and practice-oriented examinations, with re-certification exams every ten years. To anticipate change, he also studies related medical specialties even though
he is not required to do so. He has written and lectured on many sports medicine topics.


Dr. Granatir has practiced Comprehensive Orthopedic Care in Kearny, New Jersey since 1986. His special interests include: total joint replacements of the hip and knee; arthroscopy of the knee, shoulder and all major joints; Sports Medicine; spine surgery; diagnostic orthopedics; fracture care; and arthritis. He has hospital privileges at Clara Maass Hospital in Belleville, Saint Barnabas in Livingston, and the new Jersey City Medical Center.
Dr. Granatir has also lectured and written on sports medicine topics and health policy. His other interests include language (Spanish, German and French), music and computer technology.

* Dr. Granatir participates in running, triathlons, mountain and road
biking, rollerblading, skiing, swimming, windsurfing, sailing, tennis, golf and weight training. He feels that being a "jock" makes him a better orthopedic "doc".

 


 

 

 

 

 


“A great surgeon possesses superb surgical skills but also has excellent clinical judgement. I’ve worked with Dr. Granatir over 14 years and feel fortunate to have him as a resource for my patients who need orthopedic care.”
W. Bleiweiss, M.D.


“I came to Dr. Granatir
for a knee problem. His complete history revealed my headaches. He ordered an MRI of my brain and discovered a tumor. He saved my life…and fixed my knee! Now I know what they mean by ‘comprehensive practice’.”
