As a double board-certified doctor in sports medicine and physical medicine and rehabilitation, I manage a wide variety of sports injuries using a patient-centered approach. My goal is maximizing athletes’ physical function and optimizing their quality of life.

I specialize in sports medicine and microinvasive interventional orthopedics, which are nonsurgical approaches to encouraging tissue healing and pain relief from acute and chronic injuries. My clinical interests comprise all types of musculoskeletal injuries, including those sustained while playing college- and professional-level sports. I also have an interest in dance medicine, diagnostic and interventional ultrasound-guided procedures, resident education, global health disparities, and nutrition.

I have worked with athletes of all levels and abilities, including Big Ten Conference (Division 1) college football and basketball, and professional dancers, from ballet to hip-hop. In addition, I have worked with multiple dance schools in New York City and was the medical consultant for the musical Jagged Little Pill while it was on Broadway. I am also a member of the rotating team of physicians for the U.S. Ski Team, and I serve as the medical director for Fordham Preparatory School.

I have a passion for educating my patients and also love providing medical education to the public. For that reason, I have appeared on various media outlets to discuss healthcare topics, and am the newest host of the Orthopedics show on Doctor Radio, on Sirius XM Channel 110, Monday evenings. I am also a peer reviewer for multiple performing arts journals and frequently lecture on dance medicine and musculoskeletal ultrasound at national and international medical meetings.

I have been named a Super Doctors’ Rising Star in Sports Medicine for the New York metro area for the last several years. I am pleased to provide care to patients in three locations in Manhattan, including a dance medicine clinic at the Harkness Center for Dance Injuries at NYU Langone Orthopedic Hospital on Monday afternoons. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling the world, dancing, boxing, and alpine skiing. My last name is pronounced “Eye-a-Frey-Tea.”
