    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Marecek is an assistant professor in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the Keck School of Medicine of USC. He specializes in orthopaedic trauma surgery and fracture care. He has particular interest in treating “problem fractures” such as fracture non-unions, mal-unions (fractures that do not heal or heal out of proper alignment), revision fracture surgery and post-traumatic reconstruction and limb lengthening. Dr. Marecek treats fractures in the upper extremities, pelvis/acetabulum, lower extremities, and foot and ankle. He is also on staff at LA County+USC Medical center where he treats severely injured and polytraumatized patients, and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles where he cares for children with pelvic fractures.

    Dr. Marecek completed his medical degree from Northwestern University in Chicago, IL. He completed a fellowship in orthopaedic trauma at Harborview Medical Center, one of the busiest and most respected trauma centers in the world. He was the recipient of the prestigious AO Jack McDaniel Memorial Fellowship, given to one North American resident annually to advance his trauma education. Dr. Marecek is a member of the Orthopaedic Trauma Association, American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, and Limb Lengthening and Reconstruction Society. He is active in clinical research with interests in assessing pelvic stability, tibial plateau fractures, and outcomes of fracture care.
