David B. Weiss, MD

After finishing my Orthopaedic Trauma fellowship in 2005, I spent the next 5 years as the Medical Director for Orthopaedic Trauma at St Joseph Mercy Hospital, a level 2 trauma center in Ann Arbor, MI.  Since June 2010 I have directed the Orthopaedic Trauma Division at UVA and have enjoyed the challenge of providing complex fracture care to a wide spectrum of injured patients and working closely with the other trauma services at the hospital. I have had a lifelong interest in teaching and education and am able to fulfill this by interacting daily with our residents and medical students.
Beyond Orthopaedics
“Flying (general aviation), trail running, and biking. I also enjoy spending time with my 3 boys (ages 1-5), all young but growing up fast.
