Dr. Flatow received his medical degree from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. He completed a surgical residency at Roosevelt Hospital and an orthopaedic residency and fellowship at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center. Dr. Flatow spent 11 years on the faculty of Columbia before joining Mount Sinai in 1998.

At Mount Sinai, Dr. Flatow has established an internationally renowned shoulder service, with particular interest in minimally invasive fracture repair, arthroscopic repair, arthroscopic rotator cuff surgery, and shoulder replacement. He has pioneered in collaboration with the Department of Anesthesiology, the use of regional blocks so that that shoulder operations may be performed without general anesthesia. One of his most significant contributions has been the development of a comprehensive shoulder replacement system, which is widely used by shoulder surgeons around the world.

Dr. Flatow has received numerous honors and awards, including the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeon's Neer Award, the organization's highest award for shoulder research, which he has won four times. He has helped to train many of the nation's leading shoulder surgeons, has chaired or served on the faculty of most of the major national shoulder courses, and has been a sought-after speaker in Europe, Asia, South America, and Australia. He has written five books and over 170 articles and book chapters.
