Dr. Suri graduated from Benjamin Franklin High School in New Orleans. He completed his premedical studies at the University of Pennsylvania, earning a Bachelor of Arts in Biology. He attended medical school at The Chicago Medical School, graduating with a Masters of Science in Pathology as well as an M.D. degree. During medical school, Dr. Suri was honored with membership in the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society. Following medical school, Dr. Suri returned to New Orleans to complete his Orthopaedic Surgery residency at the Ochsner Clinic Foundation, where he trained under Deryk G.

While there, Dr. Suri trained under the direction of Richard J. Hawkins, M.D., the renowned sports and shoulder surgeon, and Drs. Steven B. Singleton, Douglas Wyland, Michael J. Kissenberth, Jason W. Folk and Stefan J. Tolan. The Fellowship at the Steadman Hawkins Clinic of the Carolinas provided an ideal learning environment for an aspiring sports surgeon. It was a great educational experience with one of the leaders in the world of sports medicine, Dr. Richard J. Hawkins. During the last month of his Fellowship year, Dr. Suri spent time training under Marc Philippon, M.D., the prominent hip arthroscopic surgeon.During the one year of Fellowship training at the Steadman Hawkins Clinic of the Carolinas, the Arthroscopy Association of North America (AANA) selected Dr. Suri as one of three Traveling Fellows. Through this great opportunity, Dr. Suri visited 12 orthopaedic and arthroscopic centers of excellence throughout the United States over the course of a month. The AANA Traveling Fellowship involved giving lectures and the exchange of clinical and research ideas with many of the leading arthroscopic surgeons in the United States. As a lecturer, Dr. Suri presented his research on microfracture and cartilage healing at the various arthroscopic centers visited during the AANA Traveling Fellowship. Remarkably, a second Traveling Fellowship was awarded to Dr. Suri, as he was again honored and received the Orthopaedic Research Foundation of the Carolinas (ORFC) Traveling Fellowship from Dr. Hawkins, visiting preeminent shoulder and knee orthopaedic surgeons in Europe for 1 month. During the ORFC Traveling Fellowship, Dr. Suri visited with and studied under Pascal Boileau, M.D., in Nice, France; Gilles Walch, M.D. in Lyon, France; Laurent Lafosse, M.D., in Annecy, France; and Alberto Gobbi, M.D., in Milan, Italy.As a Fellow, Dr. Suri was head team physician for Chesnee High School and assistant team physician for University of South Carolina-Upstate, the Greenville Drive baseball team (Class A Affiliate of Boston Red Sox), and the Colorado Rockies during Spring Training in Tucson, Arizona. Dr. Suri is particularly proud of his service assisting Dr. Hawkins in providing orthopedic and sports medicine care to the students and athletes at the South Carolina School for the Deaf and the Blind. As a Resident he assisted Dr. Deryk G. Jones with the New Orleans Hornets. He is member of the American Orthopaedic Society of Sports Medicine (AOSSM) and has recently been inducted as a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS). A member of the Sigma Xi Scientific Research Society, Dr. Suri concentrates his research in the areas of biomechanics of the throwing athlete and cartilage healing. His research is also ongoing at the Steadman Hawkins Clinic of the Carolinas with projects involving basic science research studying microfracture and cellular migration during cartilage healing, neurohistology of the biceps tendon and studying the use of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation to relieve pain after shoulder surgery. Dr. Suri's research studying microfracture and cartilage healing is under the guidance of Juan (Jay) J. Rodrigo, M.D., a pioneer in the field of microfracture surgery and cartilage healing. Dr. Suri has published a study in the Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery (2008), entitled, Relationships between ball velocity and throwing mechanics in collegiate baseball pitchers.
