Overview of Dr. Miniaci

I am an orthopedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine and shoulder and knee surgery with Baptist Health. I am the deputy chief medical executive of Baptist Health Orthopedic Care. As the son of Italian immigrants to Canada, I am fluent in English and Italian.
I have produced many internationally recognized scientific papers, patents and presentations with a vast career in orthopedic research and development. My patented technology offers patients a less invasive shoulder surgery using industry-leading hardware uniquely designed for the complex shoulder joint. At Baptist Health, I lead a team of surgeons actively involved in clinical research to improve patient outcomes worldwide.
From 2003-2022, I worked for Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Sports Health in Cleveland, OH and Cleveland Clinic’s Sports Medicine Clinic in Toronto, Canada. I was also an orthopedic surgery professor at the University of Toronto and Case Western Reserve University.
I have treated high-profile Olympic and professional athletes throughout his career, including players from the National Hockey League, the National Football League and Major League Baseball. I served as the head team physician for the Cleveland Browns and as an orthopedic consultant to the Toronto Blue Jays. I continue to treat athletes as a sports medicine specialist and surgeon for Baptist Health.
I have served on many boards, committees and societies. As chairperson of the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons Foundation, I led the creation of the National Shoulder and Elbow Health Week, which improves shoulder care for patients throughout North America.
I have received many awards, including the 2022 Alumni of Distinction award. This award is a peer-nominated honor given to distinguished alumni from my medical school alma mater, the University of Western Ontario, a large research university.
