DROR PALEY

CEO, PALEY ORTHOPEDIC AND SPINE INSTITUTE, WEST PALM BEACH

Paley was the first surgeon in the U.S. to use modern techniques of limb lengthening. He speaks, reads and writes in six languages and lectures around the world. He has invented more than 100 surgical procedures. With 13 surgeons, the Paley Orthopedic and Spine Institute has operated as a multi-subspecialty orthopedic surgery practice since 2009. Paley says it is the largest medical tourism magnet in Florida, drawing patients from 95 countries and 50 states. The practice employs 120. Paley is working to open institutes in UAE, Colombia and Chile.

EDUCATION University of Toronto (MD)
CIVIC EFFORT In the past year, my proudest achievement is helping design the COVID policies at St. Mary’s Medical Center. I was able to protect all 120 staff employed by Paley Orthopedic and Spine Institute as well as the 300 staff who work with us at the hospital.This was all done without applying for a PPP loan.
SOMETHING SURPRISING I started with very humble beginnings. I paid for all of my college, medical school, etc., and never took a loan or money from my family.
SABBATICAL TOPIC Reading history is my passion.
