Q. How does your prestigious NYU training benefit your new practice?
A. Training and working at one of the premier hospitals in the country in New York City has provided an excellent foundation for the care I provide. I can now take a focused approach as a solo practitioner as patients will have personalized care and short wait times.
Q. Do patients need to have surgery for a torn rotator cuff or biceps tendon?
A. It depends on the patient’s activities, level of function and pain after the injury, as well as their expectations. The least invasive way to treat these injuries is my first choic e, which often involves injections and physical therapy. If surgery is required, I use the latest techniques for repair or reconstruction.
Q. How has the advancement of technology and new innovations changed your practice?
A. I am involved in several activities to meet the demands of the quickly changing surgical field. I participate in assisting to develop and modify existing surgical implants to repair shoulder and knee ligament and t endon injuries and I am also involved in national surgical training of residents on the latest techniques in the operating room.
