Former Jefferson resident, Michael Rotondo, MD, has built an impressive career as an innovator, educator, and national leader in trauma and surgical critical care. Dr. Rotondo is extremely proud of his Jefferson training, which carried on the meticulous surgical tradition of Dr. Samuel D. Gross. He subsequently completed a fellowship in traumatology and surgical critical care at the University of Pennsylvania, where he and his colleagues introduced the groundbreaking concept of "damage control" surgery in 1993.

Now Professor and Chairman of the Department of Surgery at The Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University, he continually seeks to improve the standard of surgical care in arenas far and wide.

Dr. Rotondo gained national attention for creating dramatic improvement in clinical outcomes for North Carolina's rural populations. On an international level, he recently treated U.S. soldiers injured in Iraq as a Senior Visiting Surgeon in Combat Casualty Care at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center (LRMC) in Germany.
