Dr. Christopher Grandizio is a board-certified hand and orthopaedic surgeon. He earned his Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree from Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2011. In 2016, he completed his residency at Geisinger Medical Center, and in 2017, he completed his fellowship at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation.

He not only specializes in treating elbow, shoulder, wrist, and hand disorders as an orthopaedic surgeon, but he also has clinical expertise in nerve compression treatment, such as carpal tunnel syndrome and cubital tunnel syndrome, shoulder and elbow replacements, upper extremity trauma and fractures, and sports injuries.

With his background as an athlete and a former member of the Bucknell University men's baseball team, he appreciates helping his patients in continuing to do what they love.

Furthermore, because Dr. Grandizio is passionate about research, his work has reached a national level, and some of his works have been published, he has contributed to the advancement of the area of orthopaedics, and he has been named chief of the Division of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery.

Dr. Grandizio is an associate professor at the Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine, where he recognizes the necessity of training tomorrow's orthopaedic specialists. He just began a Geisinger Hand and Upper-Extremity Research Fellowship, where he supervises resident research. He's also a member of the American Society for Hand Surgery's Resident Education Committee.
