When it comes to Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, the team of Barry Kraushaar, MD, Jason Fond, MD and Richard Popowitz, MD is hard to beat. Advanced Orthopedics and Sports Medicine treats patients of all ages with the most current surgical techniques available in sports medicine and joint replacement.
The doctors have the highest training possible in their specialty. They are even double-board certified. Their sports medicine skills are used to treat the Florida Marlins baseball team and athletes from Dominican College and many other local schools.
Drs. Kraushaar, Fond and Popowitz specialize in arthroscopic microsurgery of the rotator cuff, shoulder dislocations, knee meniscus cartilage, ACL ligament tears and all types of sports injuries. They also specialize in mini-incision joint replacement of the hip and knee and shoulder, and perform partial knee replacements when a total knee is not necessary.
The practice co-directs the Nyack Hospital Joint Replacement center, and all the physicians in the practice perform these procedures at Good Samaritan and Nyack Hospitals.
Not only do the doctors offer top-of-the-line treatment for all types of orthopedic problems, but they also provide expert post-surgery guidance for a return to running, throwing, swimming, or any other type of recreational activity. Their expert advice during the transition to all levels of life activity helps athletes and other patients return to their best possible level of function.
