Patricia Kolodziej, M.D.
Welcome to River Valley Orthopedics! I would like to take this opportunity to share with you some information about myself and my experience in healthcare. I was born and raised in Warren, Michigan and attended Wayne State University in Detroit, receiving my Bachelor of Science degree in 1986 and then my medical degree in 1990. Following a 5 year orthopaedic surgery residency program at Wayne State, I completed a 1 year foot and ankle fellowship program at the Duke University Medical Center. I have been practicing in west Michigan since 1996.
As a board certified orthopedic surgeon, my work is dedicated to the treatment of diseases and injuries of the musculoskeletal system (the bones and joints of your body). I specialize in disorders and injuries of the foot and ankle. It is my mission to provide you excellent care and service. I always strive to provide you the same high-quality orthopedic care that I would offer to a family member.
In addition to my medical commitments, I enjoy playing multiple sports including golf, softball, and outdoor activities.
