Dr. Apazidis' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Apazidis "I graduated from Harvard University in 1994. After college I worked in the consulting industry for six years and earned my masters in business administration. After working in New York City, I decided to go to medical school and graduated from Boston University in 2004. I completed my orthopedic residency in 2009 and attended a fellowship at New York University's Hospital for Joint Diseases. I worked at Hospital for Joint Diseases and Brookhaven Hospital until 2015. I started my own practice in 2015 and moved to my new facility on Linden Boulevard six months ago. I am now in attending surgeon at Nassau University medical center where I am active in resident teaching and caring for my patients."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Apazidis "As a board certified orthopaedic and spine surgeon, I believe that all patients deserve the chance to live and work without pain and enjoy their lives. Surgery cannot solve all your health problems but there are certain instances where highly specialized and minimally disruptive surgery can help. Every patient should be aware of a multitude of nonsurgical options that can also be employed and our job is to provide patients with all the information they need to make an informed decision.  Every patient is different and needs to be evaluated and treated as an individual with specific needs. Dr. Apazidis will take the time to listen to your concerns and develop a treatment strategy that will meet your needs and get you to where you have to be to take care of your work, your family, and your life.  "
