Learn more about Orthopedics & Sports Medicine
Our orthopedic surgeons provide care in areas such as stimulation of bone and tissue repair and total joint reconstruction. They also treat debilitating musculoskeletal disorders, such as sports or strain-related injuries of the knee, shoulder, hip or hand, or other joints; bone fractures, trauma, joint diseases and injuries; and spinal injuries. They are advanced in the practice of minimally invasive surgery, which gets patients back to their daily lives sooner than traditional surgical procedures. Here, you’ll discover numerous stories of amazing patients who recovered thanks to the skilled hands of NewYork-Presbyterian care teams, such as Matt Long, whose orthopedics care team took him from a near-death bike accident to a triathlon. You’ll also learn about Dr. Christopher Ahmad, the head team physician for the New York Yankees, and go behind the scenes with physicians practicing cutting-edge spinal and sports medicine care.
