During that time he also served as a staff physician at Madison Square Garden, and as an assistant team physician for high school and local college sports teams. He then completed a fellowship in Hand, Upper Extremity and Microsurgery at Harvard Medical School, where he gained extensive experience, and served as a clinical instructor at the Massachusetts General and the Brigham and Women's Hospitals in Boston. He has obtained further microsurgical training at Columbia University Medical Center's Microsurgery Training and Research Laboratory. He has authored over 20 peer reviewed publications and chapters in orthopaedics and hand surgery. His research has been presented and awarded at multiple regional, national and international conferences. He is board certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgeons. Dr. Christoforou developed an extensive practice in the New York Hudson Valley before returning to Long Island in 2015. He specializes in the treatment of hand, wrist, forearm and elbow conditions.
