Born and raised in Wyckoff, Dr. Avrum Joffe works alongside orthopedic surgeon Dr. Hakan Pehlivan and physician assistant Jill McGovern in a growing practice that meets the needs of its patient population with expanded hours and services.

Helping Kids Live Life to the Fullest

A board-certified, fellowship-trained pediatric orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Joffe opts for the most conservative and least invasive treatments whenever possible. “We’re focused on kids and their needs,” says the father of three. “Our goal is to optimize function and help children reach their maximum potential.” The practice is affiliated with Vanguard Surgical Center, Hackensack University Medical Center and The Valley Hospital, where Dr. Joffe serves as Associate Director of Orthopedics.

Although he treats all pediatric orthopedic conditions, Dr. Joffe specializes in fractures and sports injuries, including the latest techniques in ACL reconstruction. He uses technology such as digital X-rays to make treatments safe and practical in family-friendly, state-of-the-art exam rooms. “Kids just want to get back to the playground, and we want to help them live their lives to the fullest,” he says.

Providing the Best Possible Outcomes

Dr. Joffe earned his MD from New Jersey Medical School and completed his internship and residency in orthopedic surgery at St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital as well as a fellowship at the Rady Children’s Hospital of San Diego. He trained in orthopedic oncology at MSKCC and pediatric orthopedic surgery at the Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children.

Dr. Joffe remains up-to-date with the most progressive pediatric orthopedic techniques to provide the best possible outcomes for patients. He’s involved with Healing the Children NJ, which provides medical care to underserved children internationally. “We’re committed to offering the latest and greatest treatments to kids,” he says.
