The Face of Mobility, Altruism and Quality of Life: Paul Kovatis
HAVE YOU EVER MET AN ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON whose father was a Colonel and fighter pilot with the Flying Tigers? Who can be seen at most New York Mets games interacting with current and former professional players, and who almost made the major leagues himself? And who has a stellar reputation performing complex orthopedic fracture reconstructions throughout the entire Metro region and who donates most of his free time to military, sports and religious causes?
Meet Dr Paul Kovatis. Dr. Kovatis once had the honor of throwing out the ceremonial “first pitch” at a Mets game, on live television—and fired a perfect 84 mile-per-hour strike. Most stadium personnel still recall this particular first pitch since most ceremonial throws go awry. Not this one. And while he has earned scores of honors, local and national awards, and physician-leadership roles during his career, Dr. Kovatis notes,” That pitch made for a day I will never forget.”
