Sports Medicine Doctors in New York & New Jersey

NY Orthopedics’ sports medicine clinics are built upon a tradition of excellence that spans over 40 years. Since our founding by Stephen J. Nicholas, M.D., our team has been devoted to caring for professional, collegiate and everyday athletes. NY Orthopedics’ multidisciplinary Sports Medicine Center in NYC is home to top specialty-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, to name a few.

Our Team is Ready to Help

Our sports medicine physicians are united by a commitment to compassionate care and individualized treatment for athletes, emphasizing 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.

Our sports medicine clinics include specialty-trained physicians who 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.  

Innovative Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy

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 physicians, 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 effectively relieve 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. While we always seek the latest advances in our field, we never lose sight of our mission – ensuring athletes of all skill levels are healthy and performing at their very best.
