About - Dr. Howard Luks

My Principles Patient as a care partner.We believe that patients should play the most important role in sports medicine. Fundamentally, we are here to help people reach their goals. As such, we expect patients play an important in their orthopedic care. From defining their goals to rehabilitation, we look forward to the patient as a partner We treat patients, not MRIs.MRIs do not have goals. MRIs do not have fears. MRIs don’t do rehab. While we look at images, we never forget the big picture—people are the reason we do what we do. Deciding a treatment plan in sports medicine is much more than just an image. We want people to know that because we never forget A tear may not equal a surgery.Sometimes the most difficult decision we make is not to operate on a patient. Often times, people think that any tear in a meniscus or ligament means surgery. The reality is that decision is much more complicated and incorporates patient specifics, goals, expectations, and a host of other factors. In short, we only recommend surgery when we feel the potential benefits exceed the potential risks My Practice A Board-Certified – Sports Medicine – Orthopedic Surgeon with offices in Westchester and Dutchess Counties Associate Professor of Orthopedic Surgery at New York Medical College Chief of Sports Medicine and Arthroscopy at University Orthopedics, PC and Westchester Medical Center My Hospital Affiliations Westchester Medical Center (Level I Trauma Center) –a major referral center for complex trauma, multi-ligament knee reconstructions, complex shoulder fractures, revision knee and shoulder surgery, and other procedures.
