About Me

Katherine Amato, MS, PA is a member of Summit Health’s Orthopedics and Sports Medicine team. Ms. Amato specializes in general orthopedics and sports medicine, including caring for injuries to the shoulder, knee, hand, wrist, foot and ankle, and spine. She also administers joint injections and assists in orthopedic surgeries.

Ms. Amato’s interest in sports medicine and orthopedics started at a young age. “Playing soccer throughout high school and college, I’ve experienced various orthopedic injuries and have always wanted to help patients like myself,” Ms. Amato says.

Through proper diagnosis and treatment, Ms. Amato hopes to get patients back to their daily activities, whether that’s being able to walk up and down stairs without pain or playing competitive sports.

When not treating patients, Ms. Amato likes traveling, participating in outdoor activities such as hiking and running and cooking, and baking.
