NY Orthopedics Sports Medicine Center

NY Orthopedics was built upon a tradition of excellence that spans back more than 40 years. Since our founding by Stephen J. Nicholas, M.D., our orthopedics and sports medicine practice has been devoted to caring for professional, collegiate and everyday athletes. NY Orthopedics’ multidisciplinary Sports Medicine Center in NYC is home to a team of top fellowship-trained sports medicine physicians who have served as team physicians and orthopedic consultants for the New York Jets, New York Islanders and the PGA tour, just to name a few.

Our sports medicine doctors are united by a commitment to compassionate care and individualized treatment for athletes – with an emphasis on the right care, for the right person, at the right time. Our goal is to get our active patients back to their active lives and prevent future injuries from occurring.

We offer a wide range of treatment options, from non-operative care and in-office procedures for minor conditions and fractures to the latest surgical procedures for more complex sports-related injuries and disorders. After an examination with one of our sports medicine specialists, we’ll be able to determine whether nonsurgical treatment options such as physical therapy, joint and bursa injections or platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy will be effective at relieving your symptoms.

When surgery is necessary, our patients can take comfort in knowing that we provide the latest, state-of-the-art procedures such as arthroscopic repair for tears and injuries of the ACL, meniscus, rotator cuff and labrum, cartilage repair/transplantation and robot-assisted joint replacement procedures, which allow us to deliver better outcomes and, in some cases, faster recovery times. Though we remain at the forefront of the latest advances in our field, we never lose sight of the importance of optimizing patient outcomes above all else.

Our fellowship-trained sports medicine physicians are actively involved in research programs, including pioneering new approaches to surgical techniques. Much of these research efforts are led by the Nicholas Institute of Sports Medicine and Athletic Trauma (NISMAT) at Lenox Hill Hospital, the first hospital-based facility dedicated to the study of sports medicine in the country, which was founded by James A. Nicholas, M.D. Our unwavering dedication to research in the field has translated to the highest level of care for the patients we treat.
