Dr. Bloom takes a personalized approach with each patient, tailoring their treatment with the goal of conservative, nonoperative management. He is devoted to providing his patients with innovative and compassionate care and if surgery is required, he employs the latest techniques and technology to get patients back to their active lifestyles.

Dr. Bloom grew up in West Hartford, CT and attended Loomis Chaffee High School. He obtained his bachelor’s degree from Brandeis University where he played on the Men’s Golf team. He received his medical degree from Northeast Ohio Medical University where he was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha honor medical society. He completed his orthopedic surgery residency training at SUNY Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY where he served as chief resident.
