Michael A. Arata, MD

With FWO since 1981, Dr. Arata is a large part of our success. A board certified surgeon, he is originally from Fort Wayne and comes from a medical family. His father was a surgeon, which led Dr. Arata to follow in his footsteps.

Aside from his position with FWO, Dr. Arata is an instructor in area residency programs and served as medical staff President for both St. Joseph Medical Center and Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne.

When it comes to his free time Dr. Arata loves to spend time with his five children, swimming, fishing and playing golf.
