Dov J. Berkowitz, M.D.

Dov J. Berkowitz, M.D., founder of Advanced Orthopaedics, is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon who has dedicated his life to healing by providing high-quality medical care and personal attention – before, during, and after surgery. With three decades of experience in orthopaedic medicine, Dr. Berkowitz understands that acute-, accident-, and sports-related injuries can be incredibly debilitating and in some cases, they may create a life-changing hardship. For this reason, Dr. Berkowitz takes a holistic treatment approach to heal his patient’s injuries. He utilizes his well-rounded expertise and advanced training to place patients on a path to recovery and long-term wellness.

Dr. Berkowitz began his career in 1983 at the prestigious Mount Sinai Hospital in New York as a chief resident of orthopaedic surgery. The following year, Dr. Berkowitz completed his fellowship training in arthroscopic surgery. During these formative years, Dr. Berkowitz learned from some of the brightest minds in orthopaedic and arthroscopic medicine, who inspired him to become the highly-revered surgeon he is today.

Dr. Berkowitz was recognized for the outstanding care he provides his patients with Vitals Patients’ Choice Award and Compassionate Doctor Recognition for three consecutive years (2012, 2013, and 2014). The Patients’ Choice Award is granted to only five percent of doctors nationwide annually*, and commends doctors for the positive impact they made on their patients’ lives. The Compassionate Doctor Recognition is awarded to doctors who are highly rated for their bedside manner and strive to treat their patients with kindness and respect.

Dr. Berkowitz is well versed in all areas of orthopaedic medicine, and is a renowned expert in shoulder and knee arthroscopic surgery. Dr. Berkowitz also has expertise in sports medicine as well as hip, knee, and hand osteoarthritis. He operates at top-rated surgical centers and hospitals in the Tristate area, and is backed by a team of dedicated, friendly, and service-oriented professionals. His practice utilizes the most innovative technology in the industry to make procedures as minimally invasive as possible.

Dr. Berkowitz is a member of the Arthroscopy Association of North America, the Medical Society of the State of New York, and the Medical Society of the County of Queens.

Dr. Berkowitz often attends orthopaedic and arthroscopic conferences around the country. In September 2016, he participated in a live activity titled “Knee Cartilage,” hosted by the Arthroscopy Association of North America in Rosemont, Illinois. In October 2016, Dr. Berkowitz joined shoulder surgeons from around the world, including world-renowned surgeon Dr. Stephen Burkhart, at an orthopaedic conference in Texas. At the conference, Dr. Berkowitz learned a new advanced procedure for rotator cuff repairs.

Outside of healing patients, Dr. Berkowitz is devoted to serving his family, his friends, and his community. He is the founder of the Yeshiva Har Torah School, which started with 25 students, and now has nearly 700 students on its roster. In addition, Dr. Berkowitz actively supports organizations that help Jewish children learn about their backgrounds and the land of Israel.

Patient Testimonials

"This doctor's office is a place that although in a great amount of pain, I feel as though I am in good hands. I would recommend Dr. Berkowitz to anyone who is in need of an orthopedic doctor or surgeon. Great job!"


"Dr. Dov Berkowitz is a very kind and patient Doctor. Always with a smile. I had both my knees operated on in the past 5 months. Each time I had an easy time after my operation. I needed very little medication due to gentle doctor's work. He explains everything to you and sees you before and after your operation. I'm walking like myself again without pain. Thank you Dr. Berkowitz"

"In my many years of life I have been to see many doctors in different specialties. Many were nice, some were not but never have I seen a doctor like Dr. Berkowitz who treated both me and my wife. His waiting room is full at all times so we knew he had a reputation as a good doctor but I worried how much time he could spend with us when he had so many other patients. To my happy surprise he was so patient and caring and made my wife feel like someone was really listening. I didn't push surgery as many other doctors did but told us to come to him when we decide what to do. When we decided that my wife should have the surgery she could not be more satisfied with the results. A truly caring person and extremely talented doctor. You are always smiling and happy and that made us feel good as well. I thank you for your time and your talents. You are a true gentleman Dr. Berkowitz and I hope you keep smiling."
