New orthopedic surgeon joins Oswego Health

Oswego Health welcomes orthopedic surgeon Kamaljeet Singh Banga to its medical staff. He joins the hospital’s Center for Orthopedic Care team where he will practice with physicians John Ayres and Michael Diaz.

Banga has been practicing orthopedic care for the past 18 years, with his most recent position being at Auburn Community Hospital.

He earned his medical degree from Punjab University in Chandigarh, India. He completed his two residencies in orthopedics at the Army Command Hospital in Chandimandir, India, and McMaster University, Canada. In addition, Banga completed two fellowships in upper extremity and sports medicine post Canadian residency. Along with performing surgeries, he serves as a clinical assistant professor of orthopedic surgery at Upstate Medical University.

“I chose to work for Oswego Health not only because of their reputation and the level of service provided, but because of this community,” said Banga. “Specializing in sport injuries naturally draws me to want to care for patients within communities that have robust athletic programs not only at the collegiate level but any level. I just like having the opportunity to make a difference here in Oswego County.”
