Hip preservation is an emerging field in orthopedics. I got interested in the hip because I saw…my passion of seeing how the hip joint works, and how it can greatly impact the patient.
I am an orthopedic surgeon, board certified in orthopedic surgery as well as a subspecialty in sports medicine. I graduated from New Jersey Medical School and then I continued my training and residency in orthopedics at Lenox Hill Hospital. I then proceeded to do a specialty in orthopedic trauma at Harvard Mass General Hospital. I currently hold the position of Director of Hip Arthroscopy at Lenox Hill Hospital, and I’ve been recently appointed Clinical Professor of Orthopedic Surgery at Mount Sinai School of Medicine.
When a patient comes in with hip pain, our goal is to understand where the pain source is coming from and give them a diagnosis that they can understand.
