The OrthoManhattan Story

OrthoManhattan was created by five well-respected and successful orthopedic surgeons, each with fellowship training and subspecialty expertise. Our subspecialties include spine, hip, shoulder, elbow, hand and wrist, knee, foot and ankle, performing arts medicine, and sports medicine.  

While caring for our patients, our doctors have each been involved in research and teaching at the international, national, regional, and local levels. The OrthoManhattan mission is simple: We strive to provide the most advanced, compassionate, state-of-the-art orthopedic care anywhere and to do it with expert, empathic staff and a beautiful office overlooking Madison Avenue in the heart of Manhattan.

Every private practice has an origin story, and as we know, the best stories involve a central mission. While our mission at OrthoManhattan is rather simple in nature, it’s more complex in application: to provide both the most advanced and the best orthopedic care. While our tale lacks dramatic twists and turns, it has gotten us where we are today. We’re happy to report that — it involves a team of experienced orthopedic surgeons and support staff that indeed provide the most advanced and the best orthopedic care.

OrthoManhattan Origin Story 

Dr. Steven Glickel, Dr. Alton Barron, and Dr. Louis Catalano had been practicing together their entire careers—they, with their forebears, Drs. J. William Littler and Richard G. Eaton built the CV Starr Hand Surgery Center at Roosevelt Hospital decades ago. When Mt. Sinai took over their hospital and ownership of their center, Dr. Glickel, Dr. Barron, and Dr. Catalano decided it was time to assert their independence and create something new and even more special. Through longstanding friendship, collegiality, and deep mutual respect as clinicians, Dr. Adam Cohen and Dr. Jonathan Stieber decided to join forces with the others and start OrthoManhattan. 

These doctors found and built a bright, beautiful, state-of-the-art office on Madison Avenue and created a private academic practice where they could bring the best surgeons together and provide unparalleled patient care.

In 2019, Dr. Roy Davidovitch joined OrthoManhattan, and in 2021, after nearly 21 years of practicing in NYC, Dr. Louis Catalano relocated his practice to Denver, Colorado, and OrthoManhattan welcomed Dr. Keith B. Raskin to NYC!

What makes OrthoManhattan different than other private practices? 

Simply put, the level of expertise each doctor has combined with exceptional patient care provided by the entire team — from the initial consultation to far after the surgery. Here, every patient receives the VIP experience. We provide the highest level of patient care by:

  • Listening to each patient’s story thoroughly and entirely without rushing
  • Staying current with and applying the latest technology to our patients’ care
  • Ensuring close follow-up care and availability for each patient
  • Having honest discussions of the pros and cons of different types of treatment
  • Providing a flexible, individualized approach to each patient that addresses their work, recreational, and psychological needs
  • Conducting state-of-the-art research on various orthopedic topics
