Dr. Eric Putterman

Dr. Eric Putterman

I have been practicing Orthopedic Surgery in the community for 26 years. My undergraduate years were spent at Duke University. I attended medical school at The Mount Sinai School of Medicine and did my orthopedic and sports medicine fellowship training at NYU- Bellevue Medical Center. I am fellowship trained in Sports Medicine and arthroscopic techniques. Over the years I have strived to provide my patients with the best possible care. My philosophy has always been to treat people the way I or my family would want to be treated. The practice of Orthopedic Surgery and Sports Medicine has become more complex over recent years. There are many new diagnostic tools and treatments available. I believe that some of these have been beneficial for patient care, while others have not. In my opinion, practicing good medicine requires listening carefully, examining people and interpreting diagnostic tests carefully. That means correlating the findings of tests with a person’s complaints. Unfortunately, I see people for second opinions where a treatment recommendation was made based solely on the results of a diagnostic test, which often results in an inappropriate treatment recommendation. I try to run my office efficiently. We offer the latest in technology. We have digital x-ray, ultrasound guidance for injection techniques, electronic medical records where you can enter important medical information about yourself on our website, and a soon to be installed diagnostic MRI. One of the biggest challenges of Orthopedic Surgery over my 26 year career has been dealing with “the schedule.” Unless you have been in on the working side of a doctor’s office environment it is difficult for people to understand. There is no perfect schedule or solution. We are faced with scheduling appointments for a large number of people, many of whom are in pain. We try to accommodate people as best as we can. Our availability is not always consistent with yours. People do not want to wait weeks to be seen. People also call daily with emergencies and they must be fit in. I try very hard to give my patients the time they need. There is no way beforehand to know how long your visit will take. My staff does not know either. Your problem may be very simple and straightforward or it may be very complex. I will not know that until we meet. You may think you have a simple problem or a complex problem and it may turn out the opposite is true. You may come to see me for a problem and casually mention something else that may turn out to be an urgent problem which needs to be addressed. There are also interruptions during the day because of urgent patient issues and calls from other physicians regarding patients. It is just like weather, some days are sunny and smooth sailing, while others are like a hurricane, and there is no way to tell ahead of time. I do not like running behind schedule any more than you like waiting. It also means I will be going home later. I am occasionally confronted with some disgruntled patient, telling me that their time is important and they are going to bill me for their time. Well guess what? It’s not my time. It is your time to tell me what’s wrong with you. It’s your health you’re coming to see me about. It’s not something that should be rushed through. If that’s not valuable to you, I am not the doctor for you. On a personal note, when I’m not working, I live locally with my wife and my black Labrador retriever, Maggie. She and I like to jog around the neighborhood. Our son, daughter-in-law and daughter are off doing their own things. I am one of the founding members of our Chabad Jewish Learning Center where I continue to search for answers to the riddles of the universe.

Finally, he completed a prestigious fellowship in Adult Reconstruction at Stanford University Medical Center in Palo Alto, CA. For his initial years in practice, Dr. McCulloch was located in Southern California where he developed one of the busiest practices in the southwestern United States. He then returned home to New York City to be near family and friends, and since then has introduced a number of innovative technologies and techniques to the area. Dr. McCulloch was the first doctor in New York City to perform, and offer to his patients Direct Anterior Hip Replacement as an alternative to the more invasive and painful traditional approach. He introduced the procedure to New York at New York Downtown Hospital and then later brought the technique to NYU/Hospital for Joint Diseases. Since then, this procedure has gained in popularity because of its significant benefits to a patient’s outcome and recovery and has been featured in the New York Times. Dr. McCulloch was also the first doctor in New York City to offer his patients custom fit knee replacements which function to reduce operative time and help achieve a more precise alignment. This directly improves the function and longevity of the implant. Finally, Dr. McCulloch has just performed the first ever, Virtual Robotic Total Knee Replacement, in New York City. A procedure that will certainly become the new gold standard for knee replacement surgery due to the precise outcomes of the technique. In sports medicine and joint preservation, Dr. McCulloch has been amongst the first physicians in New York City to provide advanced treatment alternatives to his patients, such as Platelet Rich Plasma, Fetal cartilage cell grafting techniques and partial knee replacement amongst others. Dr. McCulloch has distinguished himself in the field of orthopaedic surgery, traveling throughout the country and internationally, to instruct other surgeons at conferences, meetings and in the operating room, in minimally invasive and advanced surgical techniques. Additionally, he is a highly sought after consultant by orthopaedic companies and has worked with many of the most recognized names in the industry such as Consensus Orthopaedics, Stryker Orthopaedics, Biomet, and Smith and Nephew.
