Title(s) Chair, Department of Orthopedic Surgery; Orthopedics Surgeon 
Clinical Programs & Specialties
  • Orthopaedic Surgery
Philosophy of Care

It is my goal to provide exceptional orthopaedic care to my patients through careful listening, thorough patient education on their condition, and treatment options and shared decision-making about the best course of action. 

Personal Interests

I enjoy being outside - whether walking or hiking with my wife and our dogs, being on the water, or backpacking trips with my son. 


My family lived in Webster until my father's job at Kodak took us to London, England, and then to California. I completed my undergraduate work at the University of Pennsylvania and my medical degree at Columbia University, before orthopaedic surgery residency at the University of Rochester. I returned to the University of Pennsylvania for a fellowship year in Adult Reconstruction. I have practiced in Rochester since completing my training, and, with my wife Lynn, raised my two adult sons here. 

In addition to his other orthopaedic specialties, Dr. Klotz also performs ROSA total knee replacements using the Robotic Surgical Assistant.
