Dr. Meisel truly enjoys the art and science of Sports Medicine. He strives to help his patients regain and maintain their active lifestyles—from high level competitive athletes, to the recreational weekend warrior—by offering both operative and non-operative approaches to treatment. He is active in research and has published multiple peer-reviewed articles and textbook chapters regarding topics such as meniscal tears, ankle cartilage injuries, and transplants. He continues to be active in research related to hip arthroscopy and rotator cuff repairs. He feels it is important to stay on the cutting edge of medicine in order to provide the best possible care for his patients. After residency, Dr. Meisel pursued additional subspecialty training in Sports Medicine and Arthroscopy at the Southern California Orthopaedic Institute. While at SCOI he was provided with extensive training in comprehensive care of the shoulder, hip, knee, and ankle, as well as treatments involving tendon, ligament, and cartilage repairs. This has allowed him to further develop and refine his skills using the most advanced arthroscopic and minimally invasive techniques to care for his patients.
