Meet Ian Katz, MD


“I can honestly say that I understand my patients’ needs and goals. I am an active person myself. I enjoy triathlons, running, skiing, weightlifting and golf. If I were to become injured and unable to do the things I like, I would want to get my problem taken care of as quickly as possible with effective, appropriate treatments with outstanding results. Whenever I see patients, I keep this in mind and approach their care with the same level of personal attention as I would with my own care. I was the first orthopedic surgeon in the tri-county area to obtain Subspecialty Certification in Orthopedic Sports Medicine.”
