Shoulder and Elbow Surgery
To Make An Appointment: Click the physician's name above for contact information.
The ability to treat the shoulder and elbow is a "special" specialty. These injuries are far less common than knee and hip injuries, and not every general orthopedist readily takes on the challenge of a damaged shoulder or elbow.
Our fellowship-trained shoulder and elbow surgeons handle the depth and breadth of this specialty including the most complex shoulder replacements for patients in the New York City area and beyond.

Overuse and Athletes
Serious players of baseball, swimming, golf and racquet sports are all vulnerable to shoulder and/or elbow injuries. Such athletes represent a significant proportion of our shoulder and elbow surgeon's work, and they use a range of open and minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery procedures to help repair these overused joints.
The arthroscopic edge
While arthroscopic procedures offer the advantage of an easier recovery, the long-term results are typically the same as more traditional open surgeries. Depending on the type and extent of your injury, your shoulder and elbow surgeon will determine which method to employ.
