The Sports Medicine and Shoulder Service at HSS is a team of 31 physicians dedicated to treating athletic injuries of the musculoskeletal system, with a special focus on shoulder, elbow, hip, knee and foot and ankle injuries. We field more than 45,000 patient visits each year and perform more than 6,500 surgeries.
The Service is committed to providing a broad continuum of care to the athlete over the course of his or her career. It is our responsibility to see a patient through the consultation, surgical, and rehabilitation process, mindful of the athlete’s current and future performance needs. To that end, the Service also offers physical therapy, performance, sports psychology, and nutrition services.
