Common sports medicine injuries we treat include:

Our surgeons are experts in minimally invasive arthroscopy of knees and shoulders. They can repair cartilage and reconstruct ligaments to get you back into action as fast as possible!

Meniscal Allograft Transplantation

When a meniscus is badly torn, it is commonly removed by knee arthroscopy (through a scope). Some people will still have pain in the knee once the cartilage is removed. In this situation, a new meniscus can be transplanted into the knee. Dr. Gary Shapiro is an expert at this procedure and has been performing it for years.

If you’d like to watch a video of him doing this procedure, please see below. Please note, this is a video of surgery and contains images of the actual procedure being done.
