Dr. Lissy's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Lissy "Micah Lissy, MD joined the UHS team in 2013. He has a master's degrees in physical therapy from Ithaca College, and is certified as an athletic trainer and strength coach. He spent time working in all three of these professions with Professional Olympic and Recreational athletes before pursuing his medical degree. Dr. Lissy received his medical degree from the Sackler School of Medicine, New York Program and completed an internship and a residency in orthopedics at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine-Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx. During his Orthopedic Sports Fellowship at Detroit Medical Center he provided sports medicine care to members of the MLB's Detroit Tigers, the NBA's Detroit Pistons and the NHL's Red Wings professional sports teams. Currently he is team physician for the Binghamton University Bearcats. At UHS, he specializes in arthroscopic surgeries of the ankle, knee, hip, elbow and shoulder. Growing up, Micah Lissy's sports and team experiences were formative. The lessons and relationships forged on the field of play inspired him to stay connected to sports throughout his life. In addition to participating as a player, Dr. Lissy has coached several teams, even touring Europe as the head coach of The Israeli National Women's Rugby Team. He also worked as a strength coach, training athletes to improve their sports performance. As a medical professional he started working with teams as an Athletic Trainer. This quickly expanded to a role as a Physical Therapist in a sport specific clinic. When Dr. Lissy applied for medical school it was with the intention to become an Orthopedic Sports Surgeon so that he could continue to work with the athletic population. After residency, Dr. Lissy chose a fellowship with a lot of sports coverage, where he was exposed to professional athletes and their care. He draws on all of these experiences when providing patient care and lecturing. Dr. Lissy's goal at UHS is to grow the sports medicine department into the premier program of its kind. He draws on all his past experiences as an athlete, coach, performance specialist, athletic trainer, physical therapist and sports surgeon to build the program, treat patients and educate the community."
