About

Dr. Lombardo received his medical degree with an honorary recognition in research. While in medical school he received several awards including the Excellence in Research Award. After his residency in general surgery Dr. Lombardo completed a residency in Orthopedic Surgery. In 2005 he was named the Orthopedic Surgery Resident of the Year. Dr Lombardo completed a fellowship in adult reconstruction making him a joint replacement specialist.

Dr. Lombardo is a Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon and a fellow of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeon. He has authored or co-authored over a dozen journal articles and has presented numerous presentations sharing his expertise. With his love for teaching, Dr. Lombardo spent the early years of his career teaching others and continues to share his knowledge with both his patients and their families.

Dr. Lombardo’s expertise includes arthritis of the hip and knee, tendon and ligament injuries of the hip and knee and general orthopedic surgery and trauma with a specialty in hip and knee replacements and MAKOplasty surgery. As a member of the American Medical Association and the American Association of Orthopedic Surgeons he remains current on all of the latest cutting edge techniques in joint replacement surgery.

Dr. Lombardo and his wife Marianna reside in Dutchess County with their four children Frankie, Gianna, Arianna and Vincenzo. He enjoys spending time with his family, fine woodworking and furniture making.
