Dr Podesta treated my torn Hip Labrum. As he had told me at our initial appointment, exactly 4 months later my hip was completely pain free during exercise and I have been able to do any activities with no pain. As a Pain physician myself offering regenerative medicine treatments to my patients as well in my office in NYS, I can tell you that very few physicians in the world have his set of skills and knowledge in his field of expertise. This is why I chose him.

After incurring a biceps tendon tear, I was very concerned about the implications of surgery and the protracted recovery time. After researching alternative therapies , I had the good fortune of meeting Dr. Podesta. While in his office, I noted the many autographed pictures of celebrities and professional atheletes, who were his patients. I mention this because, I am neither. However, Dr. Podesta treated me like I was! Thanks Dr. P!
