Ben Service, M.D., FAAOS, is a fellowship-trained, board certified orthopedic surgeon specializing in shoulder surgery, elbow surgery, and fracture care. Dr. Service has clinical academic appointments as Assistant Professor of Orthopedic Surgery at the University of Central Florida College of Medicine and Clinical Assistant Professor of Orthopedic Surgery at the Florida State University College of Medicine.

Dr. Service received his bachelor of science in biology from Florida Atlantic University, graduating magna cum laude. He received his medical degree from the University of Florida College of Medicine and was inducted into the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society and Gold Humanism Honor Society. He served his residency in orthopedic surgery at Orlando Health and completed his fellowship in shoulder and elbow surgery at the University of Washington.

Research and innovation are very important to Dr. Service. He contributed to research published in esteemed journals including the Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the Journal of Orthopaedic Trauma, and the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery. Furthermore, he co-authored book chapters about elbow ligament reconstruction and fracture management. Dr. Service has given podium and poster presentations at the annual meetings of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, Orthopaedic Trauma Association and the Southern Orthopedic Association. He enjoys teaching residents, fellows, medical students and pre-professional students.

Dr. Service is a member of the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons, the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, and the Florida Orthopaedic Society.

His practice focuses on treating problems that affect the shoulder and elbow. He is a high-volume shoulder arthroplasty surgeon and has significant experience with reverse shoulder arthroplasty, anatomic total shoulder arthroplasty, revision shoulder surgery, and the “ream and run” shoulder hemiarthroplasty with glenoid reaming. Fractures of the shoulder and elbow are routinely treated by Dr. Service with surgery, but he also uses non-surgical management when appropriate. He frequently uses arthroscopic surgery as a minimally invasive approach to treat a variety of shoulder problems including rotator cuff tears, biceps tendon pathology, subacromial bursitis, AC joint arthritis, and labral tears.

Supporting the local community, Dr. Service takes both hospital and emergency orthopedic call. While taking call, he regularly treats acute fractures and orthopedic problems of all types.

Outside of work, he enjoys spending time with his family, fishing, reading, and watching movies.
