Sports medicine

Our program

The sports medicine specialists at the Center for Orthopedic Excellence at Syosset Hospital are dedicated to treating a wide range of sports injuries—from torn ligaments and broken bones to overextended muscles. Our team of surgeons, specialized diagnostic radiologists, highly experienced pathologists and caring rehabilitation experts treat athletes of all ages, sports and skill levels. With advanced subspecialty training in sports injuries and treatments, our doctors assess injuries, using arthroscopy when necessary, to determine whether surgery or other treatments are appropriate.

Why choose us?

The Center for Orthopedic Excellence and its dedicated team of healthcare professionals focus on each patient as an individual. We believe that continuity of care offers the best results, so our doctors work with you during every part of your experience and follow you through preoperative education and presurgical testing, the surgical experience itself, rehabilitation and your return to a healthy and active life. This continuity of care means that not only will you have a better experience and recovery, you'll also have an added level of comfort and reassurance that comes with seeing familiar faces throughout your care. 

Our team is composed of surgeons, physicians, nurses, physician assistants, rehabilitation specialists and healthcare professionals who have been chosen specifically for their training, skill and compassion.


Whether it’s the high school football player who gets a knee injury during a game, the recreational runner who feels ankle pain during a pre-work run or the ex-college athlete who hurts a shoulder during a weekend softball game, our sports medicine specialists are available to provide professional care at the Center for Orthopedic Excellence. Each patient enjoys a unique plan for successful treatment and rehabilitation. Services offered include:

  • ACL tear treatment
