OVERVIEW

Dr. Christoforou graduated magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from New York University in 2002 with a degree in history and biology.  He subsequently earned his medical degree from the New York University School of Medicine with honors where he was elected into the Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society in 2006.  His post-graduate training included an internship in General Surgery at NYU Medical Center, followed by an orthopaedic surgical residency at the NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases in Manhattan, where he received the Chief Resident Teaching award.  During that time he also served as a staff physician at Madison Square Garden, and as an assistant team physician for high school and local college sports teams. He then completed a fellowship in Hand, Upper Extremity and Microsurgery at Harvard Medical School, where he gained extensive experience, and served as a clinical instructor at the Massachusetts General and the Brigham and Women’s Hospitals in Boston.  He has obtained further microsurgical training at Columbia University Medical Center’s Microsurgery Training and Research Laboratory. He has authored over 20 peer reviewed publications and chapters in orthopaedics and hand surgery in topics including fractures, nerve, tendon and ligament injuries, arthritis and microsurgery. His research has been presented and awarded at multiple regional, national and international conferences.  He is board certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgeons and is an active member of multiple medical societies including the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and the American Society for Surgery of the Hand. Additionally, he is further board certified in the subspecialty of Hand & Upper Extremity Surgery.

Dr. Christoforou developed an extensive practice in the New York Hudson Valley before returning to Long Island in 2015. He specializes in the treatment of hand, wrist, forearm and elbow conditions.  He offers cutting edge treatment options, both surgical and nonsurgical, for a multitude of ailments including fractures, carpal tunnel syndrome, dupuytren’s disease, arthritis, nerve, tendon and ligament injuries, and more.  Some of these include endoscopic carpal tunnel release, wrist and hand arthroscopy, joint replacement/reconstructive surgery and injectable collagenase treatment for dupuytren’s disease. He has extensive experience in fracture and peripheral nerve surgery.  Dr. Christoforou strives to individualize treatment for each of his patients, using minimally invasive approaches to care for a broad spectrum of problems of varying complexity.

Dr. Christoforou strives to stay at the forefront of healthcare and its dynamic evolution.  He regularly attends national and international courses and conferences in order to learn new techniques and innovations in his field, and uses that knowledge to deliver the highest quality of care to his patients.
