Dr. Ginsberg: Welcome to Tri-County Orthopedics. My name is Dr. Claudia Ginsberg. I am a fellowship trained, board certified, primary care, sports medicine specialist. I've been practicing at Tri-County Orthopedics since 2003.

Sports medicine is a field within orthopedics that focuses on the muscular skeletal care of athletes, and really, any active individual. Some sports medicine physicians are surgeons and some are not. As a non-operative sports medicine physician, I really help patients focusing on establishing an accurate diagnosis and then formulating a treatment plan that really has more of a conservative bend to it.

I think patients should really try to exhaust their non-operative treatment options before pursuing surgery. Most sports medicine injuries will never require surgery.

If a patient and I decide that it's best for their treatment goals to have surgery, I will discuss that surgery with them, the pros and cons of it, as well as help them figure out who is the best specialist for that procedure.

I think patients enjoy having an advocate within orthopedics who is not a surgeon, who, in a unbiased and un-pressured way, can help them navigate all of the actions.
