Dr. Jerry S. Sher

Dr. Jerry S. Sher, Orthopedic Surgeon Miami Beach FLDr. Jerry Sher has been practicing Orthopaedic Surgery in Miami Beach for over 20 years. Originally a native of New York, he and his family moved to Los Angeles, CA where he grew up with a life long interest in the human body.

He obtain his Bachelors of Science at UCLA in Psychobiology and proceeded to obtain his Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) at USC. With the goal of obtaining top notch training, Dr. Sher relocated again now to S. Florida where he completed his Orthopaedic Surgical Residency at the University of Miami. He then proceeded to complete a year-long fellowship in shoulder and elbow surgery with the well-known Dr. Joseph Ianotti. During that time and for many years later, Dr. Sher was very involved in clinical scientific research, producing pivotal data on rotator cuff disease that is still used by surgeons today.

While in practice here in South Florida, he has remained academically active publishing several book chapters and scientific articles, as well as developing a love of kite- surfing. Dr. Sher is also a loving husband and father of three.
