Raised in Troy, Michigan, Dr. Gargulinski graduated with Honors from Harvard in 1996. In college, he sustained a major injury while playing football.

He performed his San Diego Fellowship training mentored by Dr. David Chao.
Dr. Gargulinski served as team physician for various sports, including football and rugby. He is experienced in treating cases in professional levels as well as in collegiate or high school ones. An active member of the American Osteopathic Academy of Orthopaedics, Dr. Gargulinski is dedicated to helping his patients face the effects of injury or arthritis. Benefiting from his knowledge and expertise, patients are able to maintain a healthy, active lifestyle. Inspired by how his own surgeon rebuilt his injured knee, Dr. Gargulinski went on to do the same for other injured athletes. Sustained by his complex perspective as both surgeon and patient, Dr. Gargulinski makes certain his patients receive compassionate and effective care that maintains and improves their quality of life.
Continually loving sports and outdoor activity, Dr. Gargulinski and his wife and son enjoy camping, hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, and beach activities.
