MICHAEL GERACI MD PTDr. Geraci received his Bachelor of Science Degrees in Business Commerce at Niagara University in 1975 and Physical Therapy from Daemen College in Amherst, NY, in 1979. His medical training began at the Autonomous University of Guadalajara in Mexico receiving his medical degree in 1983 and additional medical training and residency at the SUNY at Buffalo School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences from 1984-1988. Currently he is the Owner and Medical Director of his own private practice. He was the Sports Medicine and Fellowship Program Director at Buffalo Spine & Sports Institute, P.C., which he co-founded in 1991, through 2011. Also, he is a Clinical Associate Professor of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at SUNY at Buffalo and Michigan State University, College of Osteopathic Medicine. He has served as a non-operative committee member of the North American Spine Society, as well as being a former Board of Director and Charter Member of the Physiatric Association of Spine, Sports and Occupational Rehabilitation (PASSOR). Other affiliations include the North American Spine Society (NASS), Spine Intervention Society, American College of Sports Medicine and The American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine. He continues to serve as the co-chair of the NASS Evidence and Technology Spine Summit annually.

Dr. Geraci is board certified and a fellow of the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation with subspecialty board certification in Sports Medicine. Some of the most rewarding experiences has been training 24 fellows in spine care, sports medicine, manual medicine/exercise, diagnostic ultrasound and fluoroscopically guided injections since 1992. The author of over 20 articles and book chapters, he is currently involved in research and teaching in the field of functional exercise as well as Regenerative Medicine (use of Stem Cells and Platelet Rich Plasma) in the shoulder, knee, hip joints and lumbar discs. Dr. Geraci has given more than 125 invited presentations at national scientific meetings, chaired more than 40 courses, and given more than 150 lectures and workshops. Among the research and teaching awards he received are the Prince Visiting Professor Fellowship and Mike Hage Lectureship Award for Passion, Compassion & Willingness to Share, from the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, Kessler Medical Rehabilitation Research and Education Corporation, Excellence in Clinical Practice Award, The Avalon Cole Lectureship Award, University of Virginia, and the PASSOR 2006 Distinguished Clinician Award. He is the only physician in his field selected by his peers to be included in the Best Doctors in America Database for 11 years in a row, 2005-2015. Dr. Geraci was also named for the past 3 years to America’s Top Doctors by Castle Connolly, Ltd., 2013-2015. He played two years of professional soccer after playing 4 years of Division I college soccer, and continues to serve as consulting team physician to a number of high schools, colleges and professional sports teams. He was team physician to a National Professional Soccer League team, the Buffalo Blizzard, from 1992-2001.

Why Dr. Geraci is Different.

Since the vast majority of spine problems in the back and neck can be treated medically without the need for surgery, it makes sense to start the healing process by seeing a physician who is a Medical Spine Specialist.  So when a medical expert is needed to diagnose and treat your spine problem, it is important to see the physician who has the most experience. Diagnosing and treating spine problems is what Dr. Geraci has been doing for over 30 years. As the pre-eminent expert in Spine Medicine, Dr. Geraci has gained a national reputation in research, teaching and training other medical professionals.  Dr. Geraci was the first physician in his field, to focus his practice on medical spine care in the Western New York area.

This requires:

  • A high level of experience in the diagnosis and treatment of the spine and its functional kinetic chain (hip, knee, ankle, and foot)
  • A careful and methodical assessment which includes a complete history and physical examination of the spine hip, knee, ankle, and foot in functional positions (positions you may use for your work, sport or lifestyle activity)
  • Diagnostic Ultrasound
  • Fluoroscopic and Ultrasound Guided Injections
  • Manual Medicine
  • Functional Rehabilitation
  • Regenerative Medicine (Using Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cells from your own blood or fat cells)
  • Prescribing Medications sparingly and only when indicated for a short time
  • Strength, endurance and biomechanical retraining specific for your needs
  • Diagnostic testing when indicated, avoiding unnecessary radiation exposure
  • Physical Therapy based first on expertise and second on location
  • A home exercise program from day one to reduce your pain and speed up your recovery
  • Surgical referral, when indicated, and getting you back to see me to start your post – operative rehabilitation, as soon as possible
