Dr. Frisch completed his Adult Reconstruction Fellowship at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois. It was there that he was selected as a Health Policy Fellow for the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons. As a Health Policy Fellow, Dr. Frisch has been able to actively advocate for legislative agendas that benefit both his patients and the joint replacement community.

Dr. Frisch's clinical research interests focus on the treatment of hip and knee degenerative disease, implant design, corrosion and perioperative patient optimization. He is also engaged in larger health policy related topics including risk adjustment for value-based reimbursement and systems-based quality care initiatives.
