Michael Alexiades, a celebrated orthopedic surgeon by day,is now an author by night. He has turned his passion for detail to his riveting first novel, Night Harvest. From the Armani clothing that he sports, to the Ducati motorcycles he rides and the mastiffs he raises, no description is too small or unimportant for this lifelong New Yorker. The enthusiasm for thoroughness has made Dr. Alexiades not only an renowned orthopedic surgeon, but also an exhilarating first time author.
Dr. Alexiades was born and raised in New York to Greek immigrants. His parents stressed the importance of study and hard work and this emphasis inspired Dr. Alexiades' strong work ethic and his devotion to medicine. He graduated Summa Cum Laude with a degree in Biology and four years later, he earned his M.D. from Cornell University where he is currently on the medical faculty. Dr. Alexiades is an attending orthopedic surgeon at three premier New York City Hospitals--Hospital for Special Surgery, New York Presbyterian, Lenox Hill Hospital --specializing in knee and hip operations. He has received national attention on the CBS TV program, The Doctors, for his anterior hip replacement surgery, which shortens the recovery time.
