Youngstown Orthopaedic Associates, Ltd., the Mahoning Valley’s largest orthopaedic surgery practice group, today announced the addition of two orthopaedic surgeons, Drs. Michael P. Miladore and K. Seth Kuwik. Both are accepting new referrals.

“Attracting two new specialty-trained orthopaedic surgeons to Youngstown Orthopaedic Associates further improves the excellent orthopaedic care provided at our local hospitals and in the community,” said Dr. James P. Jamison, a joint replacement surgeon and partner of YOA.

“Dr. Miladore adds expertise in procedures of the hand and upper extremities. He is a Mahoning Valley native and the son of retired orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. Michael J. Miladore.

“Dr. Kuwik adds to our expertise in knee and hip injuries and total joint replacement. With these additions, our YOA team has grown to 12 surgeons. YOA continues to offer quality therapy and imaging services in support of our surgery practice.”
