His patients have excellent experiences with him, one stating, “Dr. Mandelbaum was the second surgeon we went to for a consultation after my son suffered a torn meniscus. His extensive knowledge of soccer athletes in particular, as well as his positive demeanor, were what sold us on having him do the surgery. The communication from his office was consistent and encouraging throughout the process. He held my son to a high standard for his rehab and made sure he was doing the work he needed to do to get back on the pitch. He was cleared to return to playing just over 6 weeks post-op. We could not be happier with Dr. Mandelbaum and will refer him to all our friends and family.”

As a surgeon, Dr. Mandelbaum is trained to assess, diagnose, prevent, and treat sports injuries in patients of all ages, and refer those patients to further services if needed.
