Bryan T. Kelly, MD

Dr. Bryan T. Kelly is a specialist in sports medicine injuries and arthroscopic and open surgical management of non-arthritic disorders around the hip. He has a faculty appointment at Weill Cornell Medical College and medical staff appointments at Hospital for Special Surgery and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. He cares for several sports teams serving as Head Team Physician for the New York Rangers, Associate Team Physician for the New York Giants, the New York Red Bull's MLS team, as well as the Team Consult for hip injuries for the Brooklyn Nets and several collegiate teams in the tri-state region.

After the completion of his residency at HSS in 2001, Dr. Kelly completed a two year fellowship at Hospital for Special Surgery, specializing in Sports Medicine and Shoulder Surgery. Dr. Kelly then completed a fellowship in Hip Sports Injuries and Arthroscopy at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Center for Sports Medicine, under the direction of Dr. Marc J. Philippon, MD. Prior to starting his practice he also completed an AO International Traveling Fellowship where he spent time with Dr. Herbert Resch at the Landeskliniken Hospital in Salzburg, Austria, as well as with Professor Reinhold Ganz in Bern, Switzerland studying advanced techniques in open management of hip and shoulder injuries.

Dr. Kelly currently serves as Chief of the Sports Medicine and Shoulder Service as well as Co-Director for the Center for Hip Preservation which is designed to provide multi-disciplinary care for patients at all levels with hip injuries. He has a broad range of both clinical and basic science research interests including the development of a clinical outcomes registry; biomechanical studies evaluating conflict patterns in femoroacetabular impingement and techniques in labral refixation; development of synthetic scaffolds for labral reconstruction and cartilage injuries in the hip; and the development of novel surgical techniques for managing soft tissue injuries around the hip joint. He has authored over 75 scientific publications, chapters, review articles, and books.
