Getting Healthcare Right

Dr. Victor Prisk

I’m a board certified orthopedic surgeon specializing in dance medicine and foot & ankle surgery. An active speaker, researcher, and writer, I bring my patients experience and empathy as a former NCAA All-American gymnast, NPC Welterweight bodybuilding national champion, and professional Lindy-Hop Swing dancer. As a surgeon at West Penn Hospital of the Allegheny Health Network, my passion is to care for performing artists with a desire to take their art to the next level. I actively research the role of nutrition in patient care and serve on the GNC Medical Advisory Board. My books, The G.A.I.N. Plan and The Leucine Factor Diet are available on
