“Since my knee surgery, I’ve climbed 4,000-foot peaks and walked down the aisle at my wedding in 4-inch heels—things I never dreamed of being able to do before.”

We provide care for acute injuries such as sprains, fractures, torn ligaments, and ruptured tendons, as well as chronic conditions that may result from repetitive strain or degenerative disease, including bursitis and tendinitis and osteoarthritis.
Experts in Surgical and Nonsurgical Treatment
Our doctors perform more than 4,000 surgeries each year to treat all types of musculoskeletal conditions. Types of surgery for sports medicine injuries and other orthopedic conditions include cartilage repair and restoration, as well as minimally invasive procedures such as arthroscopic surgery.
Our doctors also understand that surgery is not always the answer. They often recommend nonsurgical treatments to address injuries such as ankle instability, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, tendinitis, rotator cuff injuries, and shoulder dislocations. We offer the most advanced treatment options—including shock wave therapy and injectable orthobiologic treatments—all as outpatient care, so you can go home the same day and recover where you feel most comfortable. Orthobiologic treatments involve using an intensified concentration of substances that are naturally found in the body, such as stem cells or platelets, to help musculoskeletal injuries heal quicker. We also offer physical therapy programs.
We take equal pride in helping everyone from professional athletes to everyday New Yorkers recover from injury and meet the challenges of their busy lives. We have special expertise in treating hockey players and competitive figure skaters, and we also treat elite dancers in the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in collaboration with NYU Langone’s Harkness Center for Dance Injuries.
