Arthroscopic Surgery
(Hip, Knee, Shoulder and Ankle)

A loose particle of bone or a torn meniscus produces the common symptoms of pain, clicking, locking and instability. Arthroscopic surgery, an incision smaller than a grain of rice, gets rid of those symptoms in less than half an hour.

Open Extremity MRI

Orthopedics in Midtown East

Open Extremity MRI is now available at our Madison Avenue office in New York City. Our MRI machine is a highly advanced imaging device that uses the latest technology available. In addition, the exam is performed in an open extremity scanner meaning your head, and most of your body, is out of the scanner magnet reducing the likelihood of claustrophobia in most patients.

Because our Open Extremity MRI is onsite in our office, I can provide this service on the day of your visit, or very soon thereafter, depending on your insurance requirements. In many cases we receive the official interpretation of the MRI on the day of your exam and any remaining information within 24 hours. This allows me to more accurately diagnose your problem and discuss treatment options without costly delays. patients.

Next month I will discuss a technique for a true arthroscopic repair of the ACL ligament, not just a reconstruction.
