The Pediatric Orthopedic Center provides pediatric and adolescent patients with the highest quality of care for sports injuries and problems related to the spine, bones, joints and muscles including fractures, scoliosis, hip dysplasia and clubfoot. The practice uses the most innovative, nonoperative, minimally-invasive and arthroscopic surgical techniques available.

One of the largest pediatric and adolescent orthopedic practices in the tri-state area, TPOC is affiliated with New York University Medical Center so its doctors can care for children locally at Goryeb Children’s Hospital, Saint Barnabas Medical Center and Overlook Medical Center, while taking advantage of NYU’s state-of-the-art resources.

“We offer the resources of a world-class care center while still continuing our relationship with our patients and remaining their physician,” says Dr. Mark Rieger, whose expertise lies in musculoskeletal disorders including scoliosis, sports injuries and fractures. TPOC is the only private practice in the state to have the EOS imaging system, an X-ray that creates 3-D images of the spine and lower extremities using 10 to 50 times less radiation.

The doctors achieve the best possible outcome with the least amount of surgical intervention. Dr. Joshua Strassberg specializes in pediatric and adolescent trauma, sports injuries and hip disorders. “I enjoy having the opportunity to relate to kids and make them feel at ease,” he says.

An expert in the field of pediatric sports medicine, Dr. David Lin has a special interest in fracture/trauma care. “It’s exciting to work with children—they keep me young at heart, and I love their resilience,” he says. “Returning kids to their optimal level of health—and knowing we’ve made a difference in their lives—is the most rewarding thing about what we do,” Dr. Rieger says.
