Bio

 

A graduate of the University of Connecticut, Dr. Walters earned a bachelor’s degree in molecular and neurobiology. He received his medical degree from the University of Tel Aviv-Sackler School of Medicine and returned to New York City to complete a residency in Orthopadic surgery at the renowned Lenox Hill Hospital. He then completed a one-year Orthopadic sports medicine fellowship with Dr. James Andrews at the American Sports Medicine Institute. There his training focused on the management and care of sports injuries in elite level athletes both on and off the field. Dr. Walters’ research has been presented at numerous Orthopadic and specialty related conferences both in the United States and abroad. He has also recently authored papers on areas of sports medicine near and dear to his heart: the arthroscopic management of hip injuries in the young adult and the management of upper extremity injuries in the young overhead throwing athlete. Dr. Walters is currently overseeing clinical and biomechanical research projects at the American Sports Medicine Institute (ASMI) and Lenox Hill Hospital. These projects include several large level I trials exploring the use of biologics such as PRP and Stem Cell Therapy to augment healing and minimize pain as well as anatomical studies of the shoulder, elbow and hip. Dr. Walters holds a special passion for the field of sports medicine because he participated in sports throughout his childhood. As a fellow at the American Sports Medicine Institute, he participated in the care of high school, collegiate and professional athletes working to keep them safe and help return them to the field after an injury. Dr. Walters’ commonly performed arthroscopic and reconstructive procedures include: shoulder surgeries such as rotator cuff repair, instability and labral repair and AC joint reconstruction; elbow surgeries such as ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction (Tommy John) and repair, arthroscopy of the elbow for the treatment of OCD and Impingement, Proximal and distal biceps tendon repair; ligamentous reconstruction of the knee (ACL, PCL, MCL, posterolateral corner), arthroscopic meniscus repair, patellar instability (MPFL reconstruction) and cartilage transplantation; arthroscopic surgery of the hip. He is also well versed in the use of biologics such as mesenchymal stem cells and platelet rich plasma to help augment healing and minimize post operative pain. In his spare time, Dr. Walters enjoys running, cooking and traveling
