Suffolk Orthopaedic Associates, P.C. has been a well established medical practice since 1963. In July of 1986, Dr. Richard J. Tabershaw, M.D. joined the original partners followed by Dr. Michael Lastihenos in 1994. Together they have been continuously growing and expanding the scope of the practice. In addition to the doctors, we have our team of Physician Assistants: Michael Polidoro and Adrian Arredondo, who assist the doctors both in the office and the operating room.
The orthopaedic physicians treat general orthopaedics with the majority of their patients being sports related or other upper/lower extremity injuries. X-ray facilities are located on premisis and include radiographic, ultrasound, and fluoroscopy. A large percentage of the orthopaedic surgical procedures are performed at local surgery centers, which offer a more convenient and patient friendly experience over hospitals for same day surgeries. We are able to offer our pain management patients even greater convenience with many of the interventional procedures being performed right in our office.
Those of us at Suffolk Orthopaedic Associates pride ourselves on the patient care we provide which has kept us being such a vital organization to the community. Please visit some of the other areas of our website to learn more about our medical staff and office.
