In over 16 years of practice in Fort Lauderdale, Dr. Erol Yoldas has become one of the top orthopedic sports medicine doctors in Florida. He began practice in 2000, specializing in complex reconstruction of knee, shoulder, and elbow injuries. Currently performing over 900 surgeries a year, half of his practice is knees (ACL reconstruction, meniscal/cartilage injuries) and the other half shoulder/elbow (rotator cuff, labral repair/stabilization, UCL reconstruction).
Prior to practicing, he received a Biomedical Engineering degree at Duke University. His medical degree is from Yale University, where he received the nations top honor society for medicine (AOA). For Orthopedic residency, he trained under the outstanding sports medicine department at University of Pittsburgh. Dr. Yoldas was then offered the preeminent sports medicine fellowship in this country at the Steadman Phillipon Clinic in Vail, Colorado (formally the Steadman Hawkins Clinic).
As part of his scope of care on and off the field, Dr. Yoldas was team physician for the Miami Dolphins for over 13 years. He is currently a team physician for the Nova Southeastern University Sharks, a consultant for several local colleges, and has previously served the Miami Marlins as team physician. And he still finds time on Friday nights to volunteer coverage for several local high schools! Dr. Yoldas is also actively working with the leaders in the research industry, developing novel techniques that are less invasive offering patients the best chance to recover.
