Dr. VanBeek wins 2016 "40 Under 40" AwardStamford Health announced that orthopedic surgeon Corinne VanBeek, MD, was among winners of the Fairfield County Business Journal’s 12th annual “40 Under 40” Award, which recognizes 40 local, emerging leaders under the age of 40.

A specialist in shoulder and elbow conditions, Dr. VanBeek treats patients of all ages for upper extremity conditions in her office at Stamford Health’s Chelsea Piers location in Stamford.

“I’m fortunate enough to absolutely love what I do. I’m even more fortunate to work with a group of physicians, peers and my OR staff who really inspire me,” said Dr. VanBeek, who received the award Tuesday night. “They’re the ones who inspire me to really try and achieve and go beyond expectations and challenge mediocrity, so I thank them.”

A graduate of Barnard College, Columbia University, Dr. VanBeek received her medical degree at the University of Pittsburgh. She completed her residency in orthopedic surgery at New York Presbyterian/Columbia University and her Fellowship in shoulder and elbow surgery at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia.

Dr. VanBeek is a member of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, the Arthroscopy Association of North America, Ruth Jackson Orthopedic Society, Mid-Atlantic Shoulder and Elbow Society, Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society and Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society.
