    Comprehensive orthopaedic treatment and care: minimally invasive surgical and nonsurgical options

    Rutherford, New Jersey Orthopaedic and Sports Injury Center

    When a bone and joint problem or injury puts you out of action in Rutherford, the New Jersey Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine Institute provides top quality orthopaedic care. Our team represents experience, expertise and personalized care. We are committed to helping patients of all levels of activity, at all ages.  We understand the need to resume your normal activity quickly, whether that be at the professional level or personal fitness at your own pace. Everyone receives equal treatment with our superior level of care.

    NJOSMI provides comprehensive care that includes both proven, longstanding treatment options and innovative techniques. We remain on the cutting edge in the field of orthopaedics and sports medicine, ensuring you have all the best possible options to choose from for your personalized care. This applies in our diagnostic and treatment strategies. Physical therapy and other nonsurgical treatment approaches are common in the treatment of sports injuries, with an emphasis on prevention of further injury. When surgery is the best approach, we use less invasive techniques, like arthroscopic and endoscopic procedures.

    Our board certified surgeon, Michael Russonella, D.O., has amassed an abundance of knowledge from his extensive educational background, and expansive experience from his many years in the field of orthopaedics and sports injury medicine. He is dedicated to improving the lives of his patients and works tirelessly to accomplish this with innovative methods and the latest advances in medical technology.
