Our doctors will diagnose your problem and recommend the best treatment plan for you. . Not only do we treat your injury or pain symptoms, but we also help prevent the injury or pain from recurring.

Ultrasound and EMGs are done in our office to assist in the diagnosis and treatment of these disorders. MRI and CT scan is available next door at Lenox Hill Radiology. We are one of only a few offices using ultrasound to help diagnose certain problems, and when necessary, to help with needle guidance for certain procedures.


We treat patients before and after surgery, as well as those who don't need surgery. If you are in need of surgery, we can direct you to the top surgeons at Lenox Hill Hospital, Hospital for Special Surgery, New York Presbyterian, Mount Sinai, and NYU Medical Center. We can work with your surgeon to treat pain and guide your rehabilitation immediately after surgery.
