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 100 percent focused on kids and their needs,” says the father of three. “Our goal is to optimize function and help children reach their maximum potential.”
Dr. Joffe treats all pediatric orthopedic conditions and specializes in fractures and sports injuries, including the latest techniques in ACL reconstruction. He’s experienced in treating both congenital and complex hip and spine deformities.
Each themed exam room in his warm, inviting office is both family friendly and state of the art. He uses technology such as digital X-rays to make treatments safe and practical for children. “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. He trained in orthopedic oncology at MSKCC and pediatric orthopedic surgery at the Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children, and completed a fellowship at the Rady Children’s Hospital of San Diego.
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 are committed to offering the latest and greatest treatments to kids,” he says.
