Dr. Samer Hasan is a board certified surgeon specializing in shoulder, elbow, and general orthopaedic problems. Born and raised in New York City, he attended Northwestern University near Chicago where he majored in Biomedical Engineering, graduating with both honors and research honors. Dr. Hasan was awarded a Medical Scientist Training Program Scholarship from the National Institutes of General Medical Sciences to pursue dual training in both medicine and engineering and received both M.D. and Ph.D. degrees at Vanderbilt University.

Dr. Hasan completed his residency at Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke’s Medical Center in Chicago, where he received the prestigious American Orthopaedic Association-Zimmer Travel Award and consecutive Jorge O.Galante Excellence in Research Awards. Interested in a career as a shoulder and elbow surgeon, Dr. Hasan traveled to Seattle for a one-year appointment as a Fellow and Acting Instructor in Shoulder and Elbow Surgery at the University of Washington. He received additional training in advanced shoulder arthroscopy at the Texas Orthopaedic Hospital in Houston before moving to the Tri-State area.

Dr. Hasan has published nearly forty peer-reviewed articles and book chapters and has delivered over one hundred scientific presentations at national and international meetings spanning three continents. He has authored or co-authored eight chapters in major textbooks on shoulder surgery and sports medicine, including a chapter on shoulder replacement surgery for an American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) textbook. He serves as an instructor and lecturer for the AAOS, the American Shoulder & Elbow Surgeons (ASES), and the Arthroscopy Association of North America (AANA). Between 2001 and 2006 he co-authored the review of “What’s New in Shoulder and Elbow Surgery” that is published each January in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, the leading orthopaedic journal worldwide. Dr. Hasan is a member of the Editorial Board for Arthroscopy, a leading journal on minimally invasive joint surgery, and the Publications Committee of the AAOS. In 2006, Dr. Hasan was invited to join American Shoulder & Elbow Surgeons (ASES), a society comprised of the leading national and international orthopaedic surgeons specializing in surgery of the shoulder and elbow. Admission into ASES is by nomination only and based on sustained academic and research contributions to the field. Dr. Hasan is the only ASES member in the Greater Cincinnati area and one of only three members in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

Although Dr. Hasan has a strong and enduring interest in research and education, it is his patients that command his greatest attention. He is committed to providing each patient, athlete or non-athlete, young or old, the best non-operative and surgical orthopaedic care. His specialty interest is arthroscopic and open reconstructive surgery of the shoulder and elbow such as arthroscopic rotator cuff and shoulder instability repairs, shoulder replacement surgery including the reverse shoulder replacement, and surgeries for elbow and shoulder fractures. Dr. Hasan also has an active role in the Cincinnati SportsMedicine fellowship program, bioengineering and clinical research, and community education and outreach programs. Since 2001, he has served as team physician for Dixie Heights High School in Erlanger, Kentucky.

When not engaged in patient care, teaching or research, Dr. Hasan enjoys spending time with his family as well as tennis, cycling, and downhill skiing. He has traveled extensively in Europe, the Middle East, the Caribbean and South America, and to forty-seven states.

Dr. Hasan is licensed in Ohio and Kentucky
