Dr. Maxim Tyorkin, MD

Dr. Maxim Tyorkin, MD

As a trained specialist of sports medicine and arthroscopy I treat a myriad of shoulder, hip, knee, elbow and ankle injuries. Specific rehabilitation for these injuries and disorders are prescribed and supervised by myself as the treating physician. Most injuries can be treated non-operatively, but when surgery is necessary, arthroscopic small incision techniques are generally utilized. These techniques allow for quicker recovery, less pain, and improved cosmesis. Before a treatment plan is implemented, I believe patients should be fully educated about their condition, so that they may participate in the decision-making process. Each patient has different functional demands and lifestyle expectations, and treatment should be tailored to meet each patient’s individual needs. When surgical treatment is indicated, I take the time to explain the risks and benefits of surgery to each patient. It is very important for the patient to understand the details of the rehabilitation process, as well the expected outcome after surgery.

Dr. Yaser El-Gazzar, MD

Dr. Yaser El-Gazzar, MD

Yaser El-Gazzar, MD is a Board Eligible, orthopedic surgeon with specialty interests in joint preservation, adult & pediatric sports medicine, and trauma. He completed his undergraduate education at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, Medical education at Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia, Orthopedic Surgery Residency at Albert Einstein Medical College/ Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx. He completed his training by undergoing a Sports Medicine Fellowship at the prestigious Jack Hughston Foundation in Georgia under the mentorship of Champ Baker, JR, MD where he was involved in the care of NCAA, professional, high school, and “weekend warrior” athletes. Since then, he has become team physician for Berkeley College athletics. He is also involved in the care of many neighboring Hudson County high schools including Weehawken and Union city High Schools. Dr. El-Gazzar’s life experiences give him a unique advantage as a physician: “I have undergone 7 major surgeries in my lifetime. I developed a unique endocrine tumor, called a pheochromacytoma, which secreted adrenaline at the age of 13 years old. It took 7 open abdominal exploratory surgeries to remove the recurring tumors, supplemented with nuclear and chemotherapy to be cured, the last surgery being in 2011. Each surgery was accompanied by fear and anxiety, followed by intense pain and rehab. I know what it means to be scared to the point that it takes over all of your senses as you are being told that you should undergo a major procedure. The uncertainty of what is actually being done to you and what the outcome will be can feel suffocating. You have a life, plans, and goals that now fall out of focus. I believe that understanding this process first hand has given me the advantage and ability to communicate with patients and help them truly understand the diagnosis, treatment options, and most importantly, the road to rehabilitation and returning to everyday life. I have had many negative experiences with surgeons who did not explain things to me, were short and abrupt with me, and made me feel that they really didn’t care. My life’s and professional career’s mission is to never make a patient feel the way I did.” “I believe that joint preservation is the future of orthopedic surgery. Damage to the cartilaginous surfaces of joints does not repair itself in adults. The inability of the human body to regenerate or repair joint surface cartilage continues to be a modern day mystery. Damage to cartilage surfaces can occur via two main mechanisms: There is the wear that comes with age, commonly known as degenerative arthritis or osteoarthritis and there is the damage that occurs as a result of a traumatic event or during sports. As we strive to become more active and live healthier, it is inevitable that sports injuries occur more frequently. Patients now have many options in how to treat this damage. Dr. El-Gazzar specializes in: • Hip Arthroscopy • Elbow Arthroscopy • Joint Preservation (including meniscal & cartilage transplants and re-alignment procedures) • Sports injuries such as ACL, PCL, multi-ligamentous, and meniscus knee injuries • Shoulder Arthroscopy and Reconstruction/Arthroplasty • Ankle Arthroscopy as well as other sports injuries. He also enjoys treating and helping adults and children that have undergone orthopedic trauma and fractures

Dr. Andrew Levy

Dr. Andrew Levy

I’m committed to solving orthopedic problems with both traditional and out-of-the-box solutions. My approach to medicine is to not placate, but to be truthful and fully explain treatment options. This empowers patients in their recoveries and is particularly important in restoring function in athletes so they can continue their pursuits whether they’re professional or recreational. This private practice clinician with a strong academic flair completed his fellowship training in sports medicine and shoulder surgery at Duke University. Seeking knowledge in cartilage transplant, he spent time in Sweden and Belgium in the 1990s. These techniques have served as platforms to biologically save damaged joints rather than using metallic replacements. As such, he runs The Cartilage Restoration Center of New Jersey and is helping to pioneer subchondroplasty. This is the use of an already FDA-approved injection treatment (typically used for fractures) to reduce the joint pain in arthritic patients. This project is based on an emerging concept that joint pain may actually be caused by minute fractures in the bone supporting the troublesome joint that don’t heal rather than damage to the joint surface. Dr. Levy has published extensively on cartilage injuries, ligament reconstruction, shoulder arthroscopy, fractures, soccer injuries, football injuries and injuries in women&’s sports. He has received awards from numerous organizations. He’s an active member of the International Cartilage Repair Society the Meniscal Transplant Study Group, the ACL study group and American Orthopedic Association for Sports Medicine. Dr. Levy specializes in both the non-operative and surgical treatments and routinely performs minimally invasive, state-of the art surgical solutions.

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.

**This practice does not see patients under the age of 18.** As an Orthopedic Surgeon and Sports Medicine Specialist, I’m passionate about my patients’ health. I love the personal relationships I build while treating my patients, and I love really learning who they are. But nothing can top the sense of satisfaction that comes from helping patients get relief from pain, and return to their lives with the knowledge that they are healing. My highest goal with any patient is to restore his or her quality of life (using non-surgical, rehabilitative treatment if possible). Because I believe that education is just as important as diagnosis and treatment, I work to ensure that patients always understand their situations and make active decisions about treatment. I have experience treating everyone – from elite athletes to weekend warriors.
