As an orthopedic surgeon and a sports medicine specialist, I strive to provide my patients with compassionate and high-quality care. I chose this field because it allows me to combine my interests in athletics, fitness, and nutrition with my expertise as a doctor.

My practice is dedicated to caring for adult and pediatric patients who have orthopedic conditions and a variety of sports injuries. I am experienced in minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery, which often results in less scarring and faster recovery times.

Procedures I perform include anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction and meniscus, rotator cuff, and labral repairs. I treat a variety of knee, shoulder, elbow, and ankle injuries and use the latest minimally invasive techniques to restore and preserve articular cartilage, which is the tissue that covers joints. In addition, I offer biologic treatments, such as platelet-rich plasma and stem cell therapies, to manage tendon injuries.
 
Over the years, I have spent a great deal of time treating professional, collegiate, and amateur athletes. I have served as the team orthopedist for professional teams, including the New York Islanders, the New York Dragons arena football team, and World TeamTennis. In addition, I have been the covering orthopedist for many sporting events, including the U.S. Open Tennis Championships; the Buick Open, a PGA tour golf tournament; and the annual Empire Challenge, the Long Island versus New York City all-star high school football game. I have also been the ringside doctor for several boxing and mixed martial arts matches.

For more than 10 years, I served as the team orthopedist for Hofstra University athletics. I cared for the athletes and provided coverage for National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I sporting events and athletic tournaments. These included men’s lacrosse and wrestling, including the NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships at Madison Square Garden.

I have been recognized in Castle Connolly’s “Regional Top Doctors” and “Top Doctors” series for the New York metro area and Newsday’s “Top Doctors Long Island” for the past several years. Also, I remain interested in teaching. I have organized and directed a weekly sports medicine lecture series accredited by the American Medical Association and enjoy providing fellowship training for orthopedic surgeons specializing in sports medicine.

I feel it is important that my patients understand their condition, and I encourage them to take an active role in the treatment decision-making process. It is gratifying when my patients regain their function and return to the activities that they enjoy most because of the surgical and nonsurgical care I provide.
