Biography

Yasmin Dhar, MD is a board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon specializing in the prevention and treatment of sports-related injuries. She has advanced training in minimally invasive surgery of the shoulder, hip and knee joint, with expertise in the treatment of rotator cuff tears, shoulder dislocation, shoulder arthritis, ACL injury and meniscus tears.

An avid athlete herself, Dr. Dhar understands the demands professional and amateur athletes place upon their bodies and works to help them recover from injury in a safe and efficient manner. With women today being more physically active than ever before, she is also attuned to the female athlete’s unique health needs and pays special attention to gender-related issues that may affect daily life or athletic performance. She treats patients of all ages and abilities, from professional athletes to eager novices. Dr. Dhar focuses on each patient as an individual, formulating a comprehensive treatment plan utilizing conservative modalities such as physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medications and injections and, when indicated, surgical intervention.

She currently serves as Chief of Sports Medicine at Montefiore New Rochelle, an Assistant Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at New York Medical College and is the team physician for a number of regional schools
