A few words from one of the Top Orthopedic Surgeons in New York
Our Mission: 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. 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 Orthopaedic 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, and rotator cuff tears 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 orthopaedic 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 use 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 incorporate the engineering 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.
My staff and I treat every patient with the same 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 to discover the correct diagnosis and create the 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 in the manner that is best for you. All options are explored and explained so that you can easily choose the best option that suits you.
Our conveniently located midtown office includes an open MRI scan and instantaneous X-ray 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, by cell, text, or e-mail. Therefore, when you are trying to reach me for advice, you will be able to speak directly to me not an assistant. Likewise, when performing surgery, you are entrusting me to do my best to make you better. Therefore, I do all surgeries “skin to skin”, meaning I personally make the incisions, perform the surgery, and do plastic surgery closures.
You don’t have to be a professional athlete to be treated like one! 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 old-fashioned medical care, with all the advancements of modern cutting-edge orthopaedic technology.
I look forward to helping you get back in the game. FASTER!
