Acute Sports Injuries & Trauma

As a parent, there is nothing scarier than your child being injured in an accident. The collisions can be quite jarring to young bodies, and it’s critical that your child be given the utmost care to avoid problems down the road. We reserve surgery as a last resort. But should your child’s injury call for this level of care, we can schedule an operation at Mount Sinai Medical Center, Beth Israel Medical Center or White Plains Hospital. Whenever possible, we put patients with sprains or fractures into walking boots and recommend a physical therapy rehabilitation program, through a network of therapists we work closely with, for an active recovery that preserves flexibility.

The Center for Podiatric Care and Sports Medicine offers a full suite of tools for diagnosis and treatment including: x-ray machines, computerized gait analysis, custom orthotic scanning, laser technology, shockwave therapy, biopuncture, Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections, ultrasonic debridement, and cryosurgery. Our surgeons are up to date on all the latest minimally invasive surgical procedures that minimize risks, downtime, and scarring potential. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about your treatment options.
