James F. Wyss, MD, PT – New York, NY

Dr. Wyss evaluates and treats sports injuries (knees, shoulders, ankles), musculoskeletal conditions and specializes in the evaluation and treatment of lumbar spine and hip conditions that impact athletes. He does not specialize in pain management; his approach as a physiatrist focuses on restoring function and improving quality of life. The first step is to establish an accurate and specific diagnosis that will guide the treatment plan.

The foundation of Dr. Wyss’ treatment includes counseling and patient education along with a personalized physical therapy and/or exercise plan. The treatment program may be complemented by image-guided injections (e.g. ultrasound, fluoroscopy) that target the spine, peripheral joints or soft tissues (muscles and tendons) of the body. For certain patients, specialized treatments such as hyaluronic acid (AKA joint lubricants) or PRP (platelet rich plasma) injections will be considered.
