Get to know Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Sylvia Hesse, who serves patients in New York, New York.
Dr. Hesse, a knowledgeable orthopedic surgeon, is the Founder of Sylvia Hesse MD Non-Surgical Orthopedics in New York, New York. She strongly believes in a holistic, multi-disciplinary approach to providing medical care to her patients and utilizes non-surgical orthopedics as a primary approach to healing.
Providing comprehensive evaluations and treatments for acute and chronic spinal conditions, sports injuries in juveniles and adults, degenerative and inflammatory joint conditions, Dr. Hesse also treats general musculoskeletal disorders for adult, pediatric, and geriatric patients. She finds that both better and more lasting positive outcomes to care can be obtained by mindfully considering each patient’s unique functional and psychosocial requirements when outlining their treatment plans. She recognizes when a patient’s condition requires surgical management, and will facilitate the appropriate surgical consultations as indicated.
To assist her patients in achieving optimal wellness, Dr. Hesse also works with internists, alternative therapy practitioners, and psychologists. She is privileged to endorse Salonpas®, topical OTC analgesic and anti-inflammatory products.
