Dr. Jacob Drew is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon with specialized fellowship training in Hip and Knee Replacement. After completion of residency training at University of Massachusetts Medical School, he completed the renowned Adult Reconstruction Fellowship at the OrthoCarolina Hip and Knee Center in Charlotte. From there he joined the academic practice at Medical University of South Carolina where he was the Director of Arthroplasty Research and was awarded the John A. Siegling Teaching Award. Most recently he has based his practice at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, where he was the Chief of the Division of Arthroplasty and a dedicated teacher within the Harvard Combined Orthopedic Residency Program. He has been performing anterior approach hip replacement for over a decade and continues to evolve his clinical practice to incorporate advances in the field that will benefit his patients.
Dr. Drew treats a broad range of conditions affecting the hips and knees. He is a strong believer in a partnership between patient and physician and will provide a “menu” of both non-operative and surgical options from which the patient can choose the option most appropriate for their unique and particular situation and goals. For some, injections or physical therapy may be most appealing, while for others, partial or minimally invasive joint replacement may be appropriate alternatives.
In addition to routine hip and knee replacement surgery, Dr. Drew is an expert in revision arthroplasty, and is happy to evaluate patients with problematic joint replacements that have failed to live up to expectations. Dr. Drew performs surgery in a variety of settings including at New England Baptist Hospital, Beth Israel – Needham, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, in addition to outpatient surgery centers. This allows the patient to participate in selection of the surgical location that suits their individual medical needs and comfort levels.
When away from the hospital, Dr. Drew can be found enjoying time with his wife and three children, most likely at a sporting event or fishing!
He is an active member of American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS), American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS). He is also a fellow of the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgeons (ABOS).
