Dr. S. Robert Rozbruch (MD '90) inspires patient, Amber Hamilton, to seek medical career

Weill Cornell Medicine Alumni News reports that alum S. Robert Rozbruch, MD, chief of the Limb Lengthening and Complex Reconstruction Service at HSS, is mentoring patient Amber Hamilton, currently class of 2022 at WCM, through her orthopedic surgery residency.

Hamilton became a patient of Dr. Rozbruch when she was only 11 years old and underwent 16 major surgeries to treat her rare bone disorder. She returned to HSS to volunteer as a college student.

"I was able to shadow Dr. Rozbruch that summer, and that experience further solidified my interest in orthopedics. From then on, I knew it was what I wanted to pursue," Hamilton explained. "It was so cool. I’ll never forget how awesome that was."

Now in her second year of medical school, she is still working with Dr. Rozbruch to gain experience.

"She has always had a great attitude and personality," said Dr. Rozbruch. "I think she is going to make a great doctor."
