The Orthopedic Institute of New Jersey

In the early spring of 2009, two outstanding medical groups, the North Jersey Sports Medicine and Spine Center and the New Jersey Sport and Spine Center, joined forces to form The Orthopedic Institute of New Jersey, an elite practice dedicated to serving patient needs throughout Warren, Sussex, and Morris Counties and Eastern Pennsylvania. The practice features complete orthopedic care in state-of-the-art facilities with board certified and fellowship trained physicians.

"We have assembled some of the top doctors in the country," explained Dr. Robert DeFalco. "Our entire group feels that top notch care for our patients is the number one priority. Our doctors have strong credentials in their disciplines and are experienced in providing outstanding care to patients in New Jersey and beyond."

The Orthopedic Institute of New Jersey consists of 17 physicians of various disciplines: Dr. Robert DeFalco, Dr. Paul Teja, and Dr. Mike Kelly (Sports Medicine & Orthopedics); Dr. Kevin White (Foot & Ankle Surgery & Orthopedics); Dr. Jerome Rosman (Sports Medicine and Orthopedics); Dr. William Giliberti (Sports Medicine and Orthopedics); Dr. Michael Gutkin (Pain Management & Spinal Disorders); Dr. Atif Malik (Pain Management & Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery); Dr. Burak Alptekin (Pain Management & Alternative Medicine); Dr. Shariq Ali (Rehabilitation & Electro-diagnostic Medicine); Dr. Christopher Castro (Pain Management and Spinal Disorders); Dr. Steven Gutkin (Chiropractic & Sports Chiropractic Medicine); Dr. Dino de Jesus (Sports Medicine & Orthopedics); Dr. Stephen Koss (Sports Medicine & Orthopedics); Dr. Frank J. Corrigan (Hand and Upper Extremity Conditions); Dr. Behnam Salari, D.O., M.S. (Spine Surgery & Orthopedics) and Dr. Jason Jon Wu (Rheumatology).
