My approach to treating patients

Welcome to my website. My name is Dr. Michael Meese. I am a Board Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon specializing in Sports Medicine and athletic trauma. I have been in private practice in Bergen County, New Jersey since 1996. My interests include treating complex injuries of the knee and shoulder. In addition, I routinely evaluate and treat other musculoskeletal disorders of the spine, neck, back, hip, elbow, hand, foot, and ankle. I am a proponent of non-operative treatment and utilize the most advanced minimally invasive surgical procedures as a last treatment option. I maintain my own physical therapy facility on-site for the convenience of my patients. Most surgical procedures are performed at my state of the art surgicenter located just a few minutes from my office. Please do not hesitate to contact my office with any questions you may have about your visit.
