Born in Virginia, Dr. Joshua S. Gluck received his undergraduate degree from the University of Virginia. He graduated with honors from Temple University School of Medicine in Philadelphia and returned to the University of Virginia for a five-year orthopedic residency. During his training, he was captivated by the complexity of hand and upper extremity surgery and pursued an additional 18-month fellowship focusing specifically on this sub-specialty.
His fellowship included three months in Auckland, New Zealand performing complex hand and wrist surgeries. He then spent three months in Dallas at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital where he focused specifically on the treatment of congenital hand abnormalities in children. Dr. Gluck finished his fellowship with a year in New York City at the C.V. Starr Hand Surgery Center, the oldest hand fellowship in the country. His training in New York included treatment of a wide range of pathologies, from rotator cuff tears to elbow dislocations and nerve injuries in the hand. He also had the opportunity to spend time in clinic with a number of Spanish-speaking patients and has become quite proficient in medical Spanish.
Dr. Gluck specializes in hand surgery, wrist surgery, elbow surgery, shoulder surgery and comprehensive upper extremity surgery. His procedures include carpal tunnel, trigger finger and De Quervain's release, fracture fixation and arthroscopic minimally invasive surgeries of the wrist, elbow, and shoulder, arthritis restoration and reconstructive procedures including total shoulder and elbow replacements.
He is a member of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS) and a candidate member of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand (ASSH). Dr. Gluck has gained experience from surgeons across the globe and is familiar with the latest surgical options, but he always strives to maximize non-operative treatment unless surgery is absolutely necessary. His goal is to provide personalized, thoughtful care and treat each patient as if he or she were a family member.
Dr. Gluck and his wife followed through on their dream to move to Southern California and they live in Ventura. They enjoy surfing, running, biking and hanging out with their Great Dane.
