Paul A. Jacobs, MD, Orthopaedic Surgeon, Educator at Medical College of Wisconsin- Milwaukee, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Doctors for dedication, achievements, and leadership in orthopaedic surgery.
Dr. Jacobs started in internal medicine, but while in the U.S. Navy, he changed to general surgery. He decided on orthopaedic surgery and was always interested in using his hands. Once he tried it, he enjoyed it and liked the people that were involved in it. The field grew on him and when he finished his training, he moved to private practice in Milwaukee-Wisconsin and joined the medical staff of the Medical College of Wisconsin. Dr. Jacobs earned a Bachelor of Arts from Syracuse University in 1951. He then received a Doctor of Medicine from the State University of New York Downstate Medical Center in 1954. Continuing his education, Dr. Jacobs interned at Kings County Hospital from 1954 to 1955. From there, he joined the U.S. Navy from 1955 to 1957. After his service, he became a resident general surgeon at Henry Ford Hospital from 1957 to 1958. In 1958, he became a resident orthopaedic surgeon for the Hospital for Joint Diseases until 1961.
For Dr. Jacobs, seeing see any patient who is doing well and has recovered from cancer is a proud moment for him. He is also proud of helping with the Cryosurgery for Bone Neoplasms, which is a method for freezing certain tumors and making sure that there are no borders left, and once it is frozen it is killed and removed. In 1961, Dr. Jacobs began his tenure at the Medical College of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and remains to this day as a clinical professor. He has also held the positions of instructor of orthopaedic surgery, assistant clinical professor, clinical professor, as well as assistant clinical professor of kinesiology at the University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee. As a testament to his success, Dr. Jacobs received a Kleinberg Award from the Hospital of Joint Diseases in 1961, a State of Wisconsin Plaque from the Actuarial Committee and the State Malpractice Committee and the 30 Years President’s Award from the Milwaukee Brewer Baseball Team. He is also listed in the 21st edition of Who’s Who in the Midwest.
Dr. Jacobs is most proud of his four daughters and seven grandchildren. His professional pride is hearing from prior students and the residents he taught and mentored over the decades.
