My approach to treating patients

I am an experienced, board-certified/recertified, fellowship-trained hip and knee replacement surgeon and the Chief of Adult Reconstruction & Joint Replacement Surgery at Mount Sinai Hospital. Located on the eastern border of Central Park in the New York City borough of Manhattan, Mount Sinai Hospital, founded in 1852, is one of the oldest and largest academic hospitals in the United States.

Providing my patients with compassionate, detail-oriented, advanced medical care is my number one priority. While training as a surgeon I never forgot how to be a well-rounded physician. I enjoy taking my time with patients and trying to figure out what the best treatment plan is for each particular problem. I am always available for my patients - both before and after surgery.

In many instances surgery can be avoided. When surgery is needed I offer a wide variety of minimally invasive procedures when appropriate.

My colleagues often talk about how I enjoy tackling some of the most difficult cases out there. I have an interest in complex primary and revision surgery of the hip and knee. I also have expertise and interest in the treatment of infected joint replacements. As a member of the Musculoskeletal Infection Society (MSIS), I am intimately involved with the newest methods of preventing and treating periprosthetic joint infections. When needed, I work in conjunction with other members of the Mount Sinai Medical Center Department of Orthopaedic Surgery in order to provide the most comprehensive & highly specialized treatment plan.

I am a big believer in patient education preoperatively. Our center's Patient Education Center is first class! I chose to work with a top-notch team of anesthesiologists, pain management specialists, plastic surgeons, rheumatologists, cardiologists, physical therapists, physician assistants, nurses and social workers who share my philosophies on patient care. Some you will meet prior to surgery and others afterwards. We are all here to help our patients - it's what makes us happy!

Lastly, I am all about your well-being and safety. As a member of the American Association of Hip & Knee Surgeons (AAHKS) I am always on top of new developments in the field of joint replacement. I regularly review articles submitted for publication to several of the most prestigious journals in our field. Serving on the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons' (AAOS) Patient Safety Committee (4 year term ending in 2012) and the Steering Committee of the 2012 AAOS Patient Safety Summit, I am always looking out for my patients' safety both in and out of the operating room. Doing research and teaching residents at Mount Sinai Medical Center, one of the best residency programs in the country, is one of many reasons that I make sure I always keep up with the latest advances in my field. I was recognized with the 2009 Educator's Award and the 2013-2014 Teacher of the Year Award.

Thanks to YOU, my patients, I have been voted on by my peers to be in New York Magazine's 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016 Best Doctors issues. I have also been listed in The New York Times SUPERDOCTORS issue. I have also been chosen by Castle Connolly to be on the list of Regional Top Doctors, America's Top Doctors, & Top Doctors New York Metro Area. Most recently, I was awarded a certificate from VITALS as a Most Compassionate Doctor.

Thank you, and please contact me if you think I can be of any help!
