Schedule Appointment

I am an orthopedic surgeon with extensive expertise in sports medicine, arthroscopy, joint preservation, and reconstructive surgery. My practice focuses on surgical and nonsurgical treatment of the knee, shoulder, and elbow, from the simplest to the most complex injuries and conditions.

Procedures I perform include anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction, meniscus surgery, stabilization of the dislocating kneecap, cartilage restoration and corrective osteotomies at the knee, rotator cuff repair, and shoulder labrum repair. I also perform partial and total replacements of the knee and shoulder joints. My goal is to preserve the native joint whenever possible, so I use platelet-rich plasma and other biologics for nonoperative management of cartilage damage and arthritis.

I have a particular interest in the patella, commonly known as the kneecap. I am one of the few surgeons in the New York City area with experience in performing trochleaplasty. This procedure reshapes the trochlea, which is the groove on the lower end of the femur, or thigh bone, where the kneecap glides. This surgery eliminates malformations, stabilizes the kneecap, and reduces long-term problems.

As a former competitive and current recreational athlete, I understand how an injury can affect a person. I strive to return my patients to the sports and activities they enjoy as quickly and safely as possible. I create care plans using up-to-date, evidence-based treatment guidelines, while considering each patient’s unique interests and goals.

In addition to my clinical practice, I head up sports medicine education for the orthopedic residency program at NYU Grossman School of Medicine. I serve on several committees with the Arthroscopy Association of North America and the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. In addition, I have been recognized for the past several years in Castle Connolly’s “Top Doctors” series for the New York metro area.

I volunteer as a team physician for the U.S. Ski Team, and I coach alpine ski racing for the Pocono Alpine Ski Education Foundation. I previously served as a team doctor for the New York Cosmos professional soccer team and for teams at St. John’s University, including NCAA Division I basketball, volleyball, and tennis. I have a black belt in karate and jeet kune do, and train in kickboxing, jiujitsu, and kali.
