I believe that orthopedic 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 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 orthopedic care is based upon my training in sports medicine. My special interest is the care of orthopedic injuries to performing artists. At present, I am Orthopedist to Mark Morris Dance Group, Paul Taylor Dance Company, Parsons Dance Company, Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo, and Ballet Hispanico. I served as Orthopedist for Merce Cunningham Dance Company from 1999 to 2011, when the company disbanded.
I have served as Orthopedist for over 70 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, War Horse, Motown, Les Misérable, and A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder. At present I serve as Orthopedist to Wicked at the Gershwin Theatre, Avenue Q at New World Stages, Chicago at the Ambassador Theatre, The Book of Mormon at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre, Matilda The Musical at the Shubert Theatre, Aladdin at the New Amsterdam Theatre, Something Rotten at the St. James Theatre, Hamilton at the Richard Rodgers Theatre, Holiday Inn at Roundabout Theatre’s Studio 54, The Front Page at the Broadhurst Theatre, and Dear Evan Hansen at the Music Box Theatre. I am also Orthopedist to The Juilliard School, where I work with student musicians, dancers, actors and singers.
