Haar Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Launches Blog

June 20, 2012

NEW YORK, June 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Sports medicine expert Robert D. Haar, M.D. has announced the launch of his new blog, Robert Haar, M.D. – A New York Orthopedic Surgeon Talks Sports Medicine (http://roberthaarmd.wordpress.com/). The blog will cover topics ranging from common sports-related injuries to the latest advances in surgical treatment.

“The repetitive motions involved in sports such as running, tennis or golf put many people at risk for injury,” notes Dr. Haar, a board certified orthopedic surgeon who specializes in minimally invasive surgery and founder of Haar Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, PC. “The vast majority of these types of injuries can be mitigated by proper technique and overall conditioning.”

As more adults embrace an active lifestyle, the incidence of sports-related injuries increases. Physical activity — whether done consistently or periodically — increases the risk for sprains, torn ligaments, fractures and other musculoskeletal system injuries. The likelihood of regaining function following a sports-related injury is increased with prompt, appropriate medical management and patient adherence to the recommended treatment plan. Today, patients have a plethora of effective treatment options from which to choose, thus making the prospect of returning to a satisfactory level of activity a reasonable expectation.

Dr. Haar is a clinical instructor at Mt. Sinai School of Medicine and considered an expert in sports medicine and minimally invasive surgery. He emphasizes the importance of patient education. “Someone who understands their condition tends to become an active participant in his or her treatment and recovery,” he says. As a surgeon, I find this rewarding. It’s what motivates me to provide patients with a sports medicine resource online.”

Haar Orthopedics & Sports Medicine offers a full range of orthopedic services for the treatment of both acute and chronic conditions.

The practice attracts discerning patients who expect a high level of personalized care. Patients typically receive same-day or next-day appointments, as well as 24/7 access to their physician. In addition, outpatient procedures are performed in the privacy of an on-site fully accredited surgical facility. Conveniently located in Manhattan on the Upper East Side, Haar Orthopedics & Sports Medicine is an interdisciplinary concierge practice offering surgical and non-surgical treatment for patients with musculoskeletal disorders.

Robert D. Haar, M.D. is a board certified orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine specialist in practice at Haar Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, PC. Dr. Haar’s professional appointments include clinical instructor at Mt. Sinai School of Medicine, medical director at Regency Healthcare Medical, PLLC office-based surgical facility and president, Midtown Surgical Center. He is a diplomate of the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery and is certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery. A leader in the field of minimally invasive surgery, Dr. Haar specializes in the treatment of various knee, shoulder, elbow and ankle disorders.
