Although the New York Giants' team physicians and training staff often catch a lot of flack, the team does employ some of the very best in the business. And earlier this week, two of them were honored by Orthopedics This Week and named to the Top 28 North American Sports Knee Surgeons of 2014.
Along with the world famous Dr. James Andrews, four other members of the NFL Physicians Society were named to the list, including the aforementioned Big Blue doctors.
Scott A. Rodeo, M.D., Orthopedic Surgeon for the New York Giants, is a professor of orthopedic surgery at Weill Cornell Medical College and co-chief of the Sports Medicine and Shoulder Service at Hospital for Special Surgery. “He does important research on the knee and the effect of growth factors. He is a go to person for critical analysis of that topic in the U.S. He is a great educator and leader, and has dedicated an enormous amount of time and energy to the Olympic teams. He is calm and professional, and is an honest physician.”
Russell F. Warren, M.D., Head Team Physician for the New York Giants, is an attending orthopedic surgeon at the Hospital for Special Surgery and professor of orthopaedic surgery at Weill Cornell Medical College. He is a past president of the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM). “He has been one of the major thought leaders in orthopedic sports medicine for his entire career. He has trained 200 fellows, many of whom have gone on to become fellowship directors themselves. He is a surgeon’s surgeon; he is one of those individuals to whom other surgeons direct difficult problems to because he is so thoughtful and has such an enormous breadth of wisdom.”
We at Giants 101 would like to congratulate both Dr. Rodeo and Dr. Warren on their honor.
