Care Philosophy

Describe a typical day at work! On an office day, I come in at 9:00 AM. I take care of patients in a variety of ways (initial consultation, follow-up after surgery or non-surgical care, teaching students). I enjoy connecting with patients from a human standpoint more than ever… understanding what is going on in the patient's mind and heart, as well as the shoulder or knee. After patients' hours, and at times in between, I am running the practice and advising my staff. On a surgery day, I am in the operating room by 7:00 AM, and operate in two different rooms with my teams until around 3:00 PM. I work mostly in ambulatory surgical centers and can be very efficient as a result. I love teaching students in the operating room, as well.Read more

Dr. Tehrany says...

It's common to sub-specialize within general orthopedic surgery, in which there are many different specialties. To further sub-specialize is unusual, but it's something I had a particular interest in.  Mainly focusing on arthroscopic shoulder and knee surgery, including rotator cuff repair and dislocation repair in the shoulder, as well as meniscus repair and ligament reconstruction in the knee. I enjoy being a world expert in a certain field, and one of the ways I do that is to limit my practice to only that area. In addition, because of the growth of my practice, I find that it works best because I don't have the time to see other joints—I focus on only those areas.

Dr. Tehrany says...

Founder and orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Armin Tehrany, has successfully implemented and performed a minimally invasive arthroscopic operation technique that treats chronic shoulder arthritis.  The surgery is known as Arthroflex Arthroscopic Glenoid Resurfacing and Dr. Tehrany is the first orthopedic surgeon in New York to perform it.

Utilizing the advances in modern surgery techniques and relying on his wide experience in minimally invasive shoulder surgery, Dr. Tehrany has successfully performed the procedure that now replaces the open and extensive shoulder surgery for chronic shoulder arthritis.

"I am very proud and happy that Manhattan Orthopedic Care is the first in New York to provide Arthroflex arthroscopic glenoid resurfacing as a solution for chronic shoulder arthritis. I can only promise that we are going to continue providing the best shoulder treatments for any kind of shoulder injury or condition." says Dr. Tehrany.
