About Me

Dr. Corinne VanBeek is a board-certified shoulder and elbow surgeon. She received her undergraduate degree from Barnard College of Columbia University, where she graduated summa cum laude, was awarded Departmental Honors in Biology and was inducted into the prestigious Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society. She earned her medical degree from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, where she was given the Excellence in Biomedical Science Research Award.

Dr. VanBeek was born and raised in New York City and returned to complete her residency in orthopedic surgery at New York- Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center, where she was nominated for Resident Physician of the Year. During her training, she elected to complete a shoulder and elbow fellowship at the renowned Rothman Institute/ Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia — one of the most distinguished fellowships in the country.

Dr. VanBeek enjoys working with athletes, both as a mentor and a physician, to help them regain function after injury. She equally dedicates herself to the aging population, treating degenerative conditions including shoulder and elbow arthritis.

Dr. VanBeek takes a patient-driven approach to care. She offers holistic, conservative treatment strategies as well as surgical options.

In 2016, Dr. VanBeek won the Fairfield County Business Journal’s 12th annual “40 under 40” Award, which recognizes 40 local, emerging leaders under the age of 40.
