Listen to our episode on Proximal Humerus Fractures as Dr. Strelzow gives us an excellent overview! 

Dr. Strelzow specializes in the treatment of complicated fractures and post-traumatic deformities, such as complex periarticular injuries and hand injuries. He also specializes in upper extremity arthroscopy and arthroscopy-assisted fracture treatment. Also, he is an expert in orthopaedic trauma, treats patients with fractures and injuries, with a focus on trauma to the upper extremities, especially the hand. He is now conducting research on patient-reported outcomes linked to elbow injuries, shoulder trauma, and complete elbow replacements, in addition to his clinical work. 

In addition, he is particularly interested in assessing the functional outcomes of urban trauma, with the objective of improving patient treatment and resuming regular activity.Moreover, Dr. Strelzow completed his medical degree and residency at the University of British Columbia Faculty of Medicine, and later his fellowship at London Health Sciences Centre; Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh.
