Nearly all common conditions and injuries to the shoulder and knee can be treated with arthroscopic surgery which is minimally invasive, shortens recovery time, and reduces post-surgical scarring and pain. This includes tears of the ligaments, cartilage, and tendons. Dr. Struhl believes in an aggressive return to function with early joint movement and minimizing the use of crutches, splints, and slings.

The full spectrum of shoulder problems ranging from tendinitis to end-stage arthritis is treated with the latest procedures emphasizing a quick return to function. Dr. Struhl invented a surgical procedure for AC joint dislocations and his work in this area has received world-wide attention. He was awarded a US patent for the novel double endobutton implant that successfully treats this condition. Dr. Struhl covers the full surgical spectrum of shoulder surgery from arthroscopy to open reconstruction to total shoulder replacement.

Dr. Struhl has innovative techniques for the treatment of both early and later stage arthritis. He offers the latest innovative procedures that can actually restore and regrow the articular cartilage of early stage arthritis returning patients to a very high level of athtletic and work endeavors. This includes the use of microfracture procedures and osteochondral grafting procedures. Treatment for more advanced arthritis which requires joint resurfacing, can now be limited to partial knee replacement using extremely precise robotic techniques that dramatically reduce surgical risk and vastly improve post-operative function. Hospital for Joint Diseases is one of the few centers in New York to offer the Mako robotic technique.

Dr. Struhl has extensive experience in handling fractures of the upper extremity as well as the knee and ankle. He is dedicated to balancing the need for strong enough fixation to allow for early function yet using low profile anatomically shaped implants to reduce incision size and minimize risk.
