Raymond E. Chen, MD is a fellowship-trained orthopedic shoulder & elbow surgeon at University Hospitals and an assistant professor of orthopedic surgery at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. He treats chronic and acute conditions of the shoulder and elbow and has specialized training in total shoulder replacements, shoulder arthroscopy, complex open shoulder reconstruction and elbow surgery.

As a highly trained subspecialist, Dr. Chen has focused his career on improving the lives of patients of all ages with shoulder problems, from young athletes to those with severe arthritis. He treats patients as if they were a family member and works together with each patient to create individualized goals and treatment plans. He has authored numerous peer-reviewed publications and continues to actively research questions in shoulder surgery, allowing him to provide patients with the most advanced options.

Dr. Chen obtained his undergraduate degree from Duke University, where he majored in Biomedical Engineering, and graduated with distinction. He earned his medical degree from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and completed his orthopedic surgery residency at the University of Rochester. He then completed the renowned shoulder & elbow fellowship at the Rothman Institute in Philadelphia, where he was trained by international leaders in the field.

An active member in the orthopedic community, Dr. Chen currently serves on multiple committees of the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (ASES) society. He was selected for the AAOS/OREF/ORS Clinical Scholar Career Development Program and was also recognized as an AOA Emerging Leader. He serves as a reviewer for the Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery and Shoulder & Elbow.

Having grown up in St. Louis, Dr. Chen is happy to return to the Midwest and serve the people of the Greater Cleveland area. Outside of work, he and his wife, who is an OB/Gyn at UH Macdonald Women’s Hospital, along with their son, enjoy the outdoors, sports and travelling.

Industry Relationships

University Hospitals is committed to transparency in our interactions with industry partners, such as pharmaceutical, biotech, or medical device companies. At UH, we disclose practitioner and their family members’ ownership and intellectual property rights that are or in the process of being commercialized. In addition, we disclose payments to employed practitioners of $5,000 or more from companies with which the practitioners interact as part of their professional activities. These practitioner-industry relationships assist in developing new drugs, devices and therapies and in providing medical education aimed at improving quality of care and enhancing clinical outcomes. At the same time, UH understands that these relationships may create a conflict of interest. In providing this information, UH desires to assist patients in talking with their practitioners about industry relationships and how those relationships may impact their medical care.

UH practitioners seek advance approval for certain new industry relationships. In addition, practitioners report their industry relationships and activities, as well as those of their immediate family members, to the UH Office of Outside Interests annually. We review these reports and implement management plans, as appropriate, to address conflicts of interest that may arise in connection with medical research, clinical care and purchasing decisions.
