About / My Philosophy
Dr. Jeffrey A. Press is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon who specializes in sports medicine, joint replacement, and reconstruction. His practice focuses on the conservative and surgical treatment of musculoskeletal disorders involving the shoulder, hip, and knee in the adult and teenage populations. Dr. Press has been serving the South Florida region since 1994 and joined our practice in August of 2007.
Dr. Press received his undergraduate degree from the University of Pennsylvania, where he graduated with honors, including Phi Beta Kappa and summa cum laude. He then graduated from the New York University School of Medicine, where he also received honors and was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society.
Dr. Press received his formal orthopedic surgical training at the prestigious Hospital for Joint Disease Orthopedic Institute in New York City. His training was completed with a sports medicine fellowship at the Temple University Institute for Sports Medicine. He is currently board-certified by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery and is an active Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons.
Dr. Press' philosophy emphasizes the conservative – i.e. nonoperative – approach to the treatment of orthopedic injuries and conditions, including sports-related disorders, arthritis, and fractures. Surgical treatment is always reserved for patients who have failed conservative treatments or have no possibility of recovery without surgery. Dr. Press and his entire staff treat patients with the utmost compassion and respect, making each interaction as pleasant and comfortable as possible.
