Orthopaedic Surgery and Sports Medicine
The goal of treatment at Prestige Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine is to get you back to sports, work and life, as quickly as possible and to the best of your ability. Many times this can be done without surgery, but sometimes it may require it. If at all possible, non-surgical techniques are always tried first. I have incorporated many special non-operative, operative, and post-operative techniques in my practice that will allow you to get better faster. These techniques also allow you to recover from surgery with less pain. Most of my patients do not even take narcotics after surgery! As I am board certified in both Orthopedic Surgery and Sports Medicine by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery, I see all conditions of the entire body related to sports (including fractures) but have limited myself to only a handful of outpatient arthroscopic surgical procedures in the shoulder and knee. I feel this allows me to excel in these surgeries, much like a professional athlete can be the best at his/her sport but would probably not be the world’s greatest in another sport. The main focus of the surgical part of my practice includes ACL and meniscus injuries in the knee, and labral tears, rotator cuff tears, impingement and AC joint injuries in the shoulder. If I feel you really need some kind of surgery that I do not do, I will help you see someone in the top of their field in that area as I have developed a network of excellence in all aspects of orthopedic surgery.
As a former high level athlete, I have been on the other side of the table many times, and understand what you are going through all too well. I have used these experiences not only to help you understand what is going on and how to handle it better, but also to develop techniques to help you achieve your goals faster and more completely.
As a Johns Hopkins trained biomedical engineer, I have incorporated the engineer approach of problem solving to patient care. Instead of choosing treatment plans like a multiple choice test, I treat each patient as an individual, looking at short and long term goals, as well as the big picture. This helps create a unique plan for each patient which optimizes recovery.
Every patient is treated by my staff and myself with the respect and care as we would a family member. There are same day appointment slots kept open for emergencies, and we only book 2 patients each hour to give ample time for the correct diagnosis and proper treatment plan. You will never feel rushed, but you can request to be seen more quickly if you have to get to a meeting or event. I take extra-time to listen to you, examine your problem, and then explain to you exactly what is wrong and how to treat it best for you. All options are explored and explained so that you can easily choose the best option that suits you.
Emergency after-hour, hotel and house calls (including the Hamptons during the summer months) are available by special request when possible. We are in the process of obtaining a mobile xray unit for these evaluations. Our conveniently located midtown office includes an open mri scan and instantaneous xray machine with motion view capability for immediate diagnosis. The mri scans usually can be done at the time of your visit.
You will have 24 hour personal access to me, Dr. Noy Orthopedic Surgeon (cell phone 917-414-2003 and email Noy@PrestigeSportsMedicine.com), so you can always ask questions at any time. As we have a high tech automated phone system to try to handle the high call volume, you can always text, call or email me directly if you do not get a response to an emergency quickly enough. While I take care of many professional athletes, musicians, actors and CEO’s from all over the world, every one is treated equally. In essence, every patient receives concierge and old fashioned medical care, with all the advancements of modern cutting-edge orthopaedic technology.
