Thomas L. Bernasek, M.D.

Location Availability

Even after many years as a surgeon, I remain fascinated by the scientific, mechanical, and technical aspects of hip and knee joint design, function, and surgery.

Dr. Bernasek is board certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery and fellowship trained in adult reconstruction.  Prior to becoming a founding member of Florida Orthopaedic Institute, Dr. Bernasek received his medical training at the Creighton University College of Medicine in Omaha, Nebraska, and completed his orthopedic residency training at the University of New Mexico. After residency, Dr. Bernasek completed a fellowship in joint replacement and adult reconstruction at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.

He is known nationally and internationally as an expert in joint replacement with vast experience in total hip and knee replacement. His articles have been published in numerous professional journals, and he has presented research papers and lectured at medical conferences on the national and international level for over a decade. He maintains active involvement in numerous orthopedic research and development projects and has served as an Associate Professor in Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of South Florida College of Medicine.  Dr. Bernasek served as the President of Hillsborough County Medical Association.
