Ben Joseph, M.D.Orthopaedic Surgeon
Ben Joseph, MD, a native Floridian, graduated cum laude from Duke University with a degree in biology. He received his medical degree at Florida International University (FIU) College of Medicine and was elected to the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha (AOA) medical honor society. Following medical school, Dr. Joseph completed 5 rigorous years of orthopedic surgery residency at SUNY Stony Brook - Long Island's busiest level 1 trauma center. During that time, he helped design a novel trauma protocol for geriatric hip fractures, which helped reduce the hospital's mortality rate in this subset of patients. He has also completed subspecialty training in sports medicine and arthroscopic surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital and the Nicholas Institute for Sports Medicine and Athletic Trauma (the nation's first sports medicine fellowship), receiving a distinction in research for a study on ACL surgery.
Competitive athletics was a big part of Dr. Ben Joseph's upbringing, so he understands how upsetting and derailing an injury can be to any athlete. Consequently, he takes great pride in providing exceptional and comprehensive surgical and nonsurgical care with a personalized approach tailored to each patient's unique goals. In addition, he believes that educating the patient about their injuries and encouraging them to participate actively in their treatment decisions helps them return to their pre-injury performance level.
Over the years, Dr. Joseph has served as an assistant team physician for the New York Jets, the Stony Brook Seawolves, the Manhattanville Valiants, and numerous local high school athletic programs in New York. Additionally, he played lacrosse for many years in his spare time and is now an avid snowboarder.
