hen it comes to diligence and power, New Yorkers are a cut above the rest. In this city of so many, only the bold, driven and dedicated influence the masses. And regardless of whether that influence occurs in the office or on the playing field, the rest of us are inspired by those who look and play their best, whether they are signing that perfect deal or hitting that perfect back swing. As important as a properly tailored suit is at that big meeting is our ability to feel as strong and capable as we appear. There is no shortage of power players here in the Big Apple, so we need to be adept at exhibiting both mental and physical strengths as the years progress, defying our age and feeling as sharp as we come across. Helping us accomplish these goals are cutting-edge advancements in sports medicine orthopedics. These advancements allow us, despite our aging bodies, to keep up with our goals, to bridge the gap between how we look and what we do and how we feel. When time is money, there is no “time” for anything but the best, especially when it comes to physical health and the health care we receive.

So addressing now the smaller issues you feel today—like that pain in your shoulder when you hit that racket ball after work—may help you avoid much larger complications later in life. Arthroscopic technologies today are far more advanced, along with the facilities where these procedures are performed. Rotator-cuff repairs are now being performed with the smallest incision yet. And precise instrumentation with robotics has allowed for partial knee replacements at the earliest onset of joint degradation, offering the shortest downtime to date for both procedures. Other advancements in medicine, such as biologics, assist in healing following surgical procedures and may be used as a nonsurgical option for certain injuries for which in the past there was no other option. Back then, addressing that pesky knee flare-up on your morning or evening jog often meant extended time out of work, gym time and play. But now, due to medical advancements and the professionals who offer them, we are seeing quite the opposite. Patients can now walk into a state-of-the-art concierge environment on an outpatient basis, go home the same day and be back at their office and on the playing field, feeling better than before and achieving that status faster than at any previous point. With the technological advancements we now see in sports medicine, we can now feel as powerful as we are, defy age and keep up with the city that never sleeps. As co-chief of sports medicine at Mount Sinai Medical Center and chief medical officer/team physician for the Philadelphia 76ers, Dr. Jonathan Glashow and his associate, Dr. Bryan Hanypsiak, combine the best of cutting-edge academic medicine and post-operative care for injuries of the knee, shoulder, elbow and hip. ✦
