About Me

As an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in sports medicine, I understand how important staying active and participating in athletics can be for maintaining one’s overall health and wellbeing. Personally, I love to play golf, basketball, and softball as much as I can.

My mission is to help patients recover from injuries so they can go back to participating in activities that make them happy. I offer my patients innovative surgical and nonsurgical treatments, and help them to completely understand all their available options. I also make sure they understand what to expect during their recovery, so they have a clear picture every step of the way.

At the Sports Medicine Center at NYU Langone Orthopedic Center, where I’m a sports medicine specialist, I care for problems affecting the knee and shoulder. I perform ligament reconstructions, osteotomies, cartilage restoration procedures, meniscus repairs and transplantations, and shoulder labrum and rotator cuff repairs.

I am an active contributor to sports medicine literature, and have published more than 200 journal articles and book chapters aimed at advancing the field. My research interests include cartilage repair and restoration, meniscus repair and transplantation, ligament reconstruction techniques, rotator cuff healing, the biomechanics of superior labral tears, and examining how well synovial fluid biomarkers can predict outcomes after knee surgery.

I am a recipient of the Herodicus Award, which recognizes excellence in sports medicine research. I was selected to participate in the American Orthopaedic Association’s North American Traveling Fellowship and the American-British-Canadian Traveling Fellowship and have received a number of awards for both basic science and clinical research. I am an active member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the Arthroscopy Association of North America, the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, the American Orthopaedic Association, the International Cartilage Repair Society, and the Council of Orthopaedic Residency Directors and serve on the editorial boards of Cartilage and The Journal of Knee Surgery.
