Orthopedic Surgeon, Reuben Gobezie, MD, is a nationally recognized leader in shoulder care and Founder/Director of the Gobezie Shoulder Institute and Regen Orthopedics as well as CEO and Co-Founder of the digital health company PT Genie. He employs both surgical and non-operative treatments for patients of all ages from student athletes to the elderly.
A graduate of Harvard Medical School, Dr. Gobezie was named one of the top 25 shoulder specialists in the U.S. as ranked by leaders in the field. He is also consistently voted as one of America’s top doctors by his patients. Additionally, Dr. Gobezie is consistently recognized on the Top Doctors list nationally by Castle Connolly, a result of peer nomination and extensive review.
Dr. Gobezie is one of the country’s top specialists in advanced arthroscopic and open surgical techniques, employing the most current methods to restore damaged joints, ligaments and bones. He is also one of the most experienced and highest volume shoulder surgeons in the country and continues to make pioneering contributions to the areas of shoulder replacement surgery, cartilage transplantation, and biceps surgery.
No stranger to entrepreneurship, innovation or clinical research, Dr. Gobezie’s most recent accomplishment is the co-founding of the first-to-market AI-powered physical therapy mobile app and provider platform, PT Genie. Born out of collaboration between Dr. Gobezie and another renowned orthopedic surgeon, Laurence Higgins, MD, PT Genie was founded on patient monitoring research that extended physical therapy protocols to ensure the best possible post- surgery outcomes. “One of the challenges orthopedic surgeons face is understanding how effective a procedure or intervention is if they can’t account for the quality of rehab between patient visits,” said Dr. Gobezie.
PT Genie was the result of a multi-year collaboration inspired by hope to provide the best possible patient outcomes and it has done so with recent research reporting sixty percent faster recovery, fifty percent reduction in pain, and a ninety percent increase in patient satisfaction. The mobile application tracks: real body markers, rep tracking, speed, anatomic metrics, and range of motion. Its mistake detection instant progress tracking board creates an ongoing connection between patient and therapist to ensure each patient is recovering on track.
Offered worldwide, the convenience of the mobile application is saving patients time and money as they perform their exercises at home, but still have the security and peace of mind of the provider relationship. Most telehealth and in-office sessions are covered by insurance if PT Genie is prescribed through a provider. Realizing recovery comes in all forms, PT Genie’s MyHEP is a subscription-based physical therapy option for those who are not under the care of a PT Genie affiliated provider.
Passionate for community and quality of life, Dr. Gobezie seeks to help colleagues improve their long-term relationships with patients, physical therapists’ interactions, and personalization for at-home care, and ultimately patient success. As a husband, father, surgeon, and business owner, Dr. Gobezie brings a personal touch to all he does.
