Spine and Orthopedic Trauma

A native of Cresson, Pennsylvania, Dr. Gene Falkowski joined Anchorage Fracture & Orthopedic Clinic in 2018 after completing an orthopedic spine surgery fellowship at the University of Virginia School of Medicine in Charlottesville, Virginia. He received his medical degree from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He also completed his orthopedic surgery residency in Pennsylvania through the UPMC PinnacleHealth Hospital System before pursuing further specialization in spine surgery through his fellowship.

Dr. Falkowski’s primary interest is in back and nerve pain related to spinal injuries and conditions. He uses an evidence-based, minimally invasive surgical approach to limit postoperative pain and provide a faster return to normal activity for his patients. The ability to give his patients back some part of their lives through surgery or nonsurgical treatments gives Dr. Falkowski a great sense of satisfaction.

As an undergraduate, Dr. Falkowski was a member of the men’s rugby team at Juniata College in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, and he continues to value staying active today. When he isn’t seeing patients, he enjoys mountain biking, hiking, hunting, kayaking, and skiing. Dr. Falkowski’s general interests include exercise, health and wellness, travel, and construction.

“Doctor Falkowski wasted no time in ordering multiple diagnostic imaging, reaching a diagnosis, and scheduling me for surgery as early as possible for the very delicate operation to remove a rapidly growing cyst which was compressing my spinal cord to a flat ribbon. He performed the surgery without introducing further injury to the spinal cord, resulting in immediate relief of my most obvious symptoms. Doctor Falkowski was always very thorough at informing me about procedures and the progress of my recovery and rehabilitation.”
