Anthony “Bobby” Ndu, MD
Orthopedic Surgeon/Foot and Ankle Specialist

Q: How long have you worked at Einstein?

A: Two years

Q: What does “More than Medicine” mean to you?

A: It means that what we do here is more than just treating an illness. When we do things here, we’re taking care of the whole person. It’s very easy, especially in a specialty like mine (orthopedics) to focus on what’s broken.  Then, you have to remember that there’s a whole person. They have a family, they have concerns, and they have a life they want to get back to. Factoring all of that into your care is “More than Medicine”. The work you’re going to do is going to change someone’s life.

Q: What gets you excited about coming to work at Einstein?

A: The challenge. I literally don’t know what I’m walking into every day. Every day is literally its own bag tricks.

Q: What is the one word or phrase that describes the type of person you need to be to be successful at Einstein?

A: You have to actually care about what you do and take pride in your job.

Q: What is an interesting thing that most people don’t know about you?

A: I’m Nigerian, and I speak three languages—English, Spanish and Igbo which is my tribal language. I’m also in Mensa.
