After earning his medical degree from the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University, Dr. Landfried went on to complete his residency at Shriners Hospital for Crippled Children and Hamot Medical Center, both of which are located in Erie, Pennsylvania. Before long, he became board-certified in orthopaedic surgery and orthopaedic sports medicine by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery (ABOS).

Orthopaedic surgery is the branch of surgery concerned with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. Orthopaedic surgeons use both surgical and nonsurgical means to treat musculoskeletal trauma, spine diseases, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors, and congenital disorders. They work in clinical and hospital settings.

On a more personal note, Dr. Landfried feels that his success is attributable primarily to treating each patient as an individual. He dedicates his spare time to beekeeping.
