Welcome to Dr. Weiss' official website
Please join me at the NYU Langone Musculoskeletal Ball on Wednesday, November 12, to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Harkness Center for Dance Injuries (HCDI). Since 1989, when I co-founded a “dance clinic,” HCDI has provided dancers with the highest quality preventative resources and medical care, regardless of their ability to pay.

I believe that orthopaedic care should be personal, with time available to discuss your problem and the various treatment options. A comprehensive consultation includes an examination and ordering or review of diagnostic tests, including x-rays and, if warranted, MRI scans. I will often recommend initiating treatment with specific stretching and strengthening exercises, with a referral for physical therapy, and sometimes with a prescription for medication and/or shoe modifications. Many patients will find that their problems resolve with this type of treatment. Injections, including PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy, may be recommended for some conditions. I will recommend surgery for patients with certain specific injuries and for those whose condition does not improve.
My approach to orthopaedic care is based upon my training in sports medicine. My special interest is the care of orthopaedic injuries to performing artists. I am Orthopaedist to Mark Morris Dance Group, Paul Taylor Dance Company, Parsons Dance Company, Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo, Ballet Hispanico and, for their New York engagements, Cirque du Soleil. I served as Orthopaedist for the Merce Cunningham Dance Company from 1999 to 2011, when the company disbanded. I have served as Orthopaedist for over 50 Broadway and off-Broadway theatrical productions, including The Will Rogers Follies, Guys & Dolls, Miss Saigon, Cats, The Who’s Tommy, Grease, Monty Python's Spamalot, Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake, Riverdance on Broadway, Evita, and War Horse. At present I serve as Orthopaedist to Wicked at the Gershwin Theatre, Avenue Q at New World Stages, The Book of Mormon at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre, Once at the Bernard Jacobs Theatre, Motown at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre, Matilda The Musical at the Shubert Theatre, A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder at the Walter Kerr Theatre, Aladdin at the New Amsterdam Theatre, and Les Misérable at the Imperial Theatre. I am also Orthopaedist to The Juilliard School, where I work with student musicians, dancers, actors and singers.
