About the Practice

Our physicians at North Jersey Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Institute in Clifton, New Jersey, are specialists in orthopaedics, pain management, physical medicine & rehabilitation, and total body wellness.  Addressing your pain is where we start, but maximizing your wellness and function is our goal. Our approach is individualized to each patient based on their unique goals, and our treatment plans are logical. We treat our patients with compassion, integrity, and thoughtfulness and provide care that is safe and evidence-based.

We specialize in treating painful conditions of the neck, back, and joints, as well as other parts of the body. Our approach goes beyond symptom relief and includes diagnosing and eliminating the root cause of pain when possible. For all patients, we focus on improving wellness, energy, and function, even if there is no quick fix. Ultimately, your participation in life events and being able to function is what matters most.

We strive to work with your referring physician and other health care professionals you are already working with to manage your pain. We pride ourselves on shared decision making between the physician and patient. We want our patients to have a say in how their conditions are managed. To have the ability to choose among options is in itself therapeutic. Our goal is to do what is necessary to help patients to manage their pain and to live functional and vigorous lives.
