Priyesh Mehta D.O.
Dr. Mehta completed his Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Residency at New York Presbyterian Hospital – the University hospitals for Cornell and Columbia University in New York City. He subsequently completed a Sports Medicine and Interventional Pain fellowship at The Hospital for Special Surgery, ranked #1 in Orthopaedics Nationwide.
Dr. Mehta specializes in the non-operative treatment of sports related injuries as well as chronic pain conditions. He has specialized training in Interventional Pain Medicine and employs novel techniques including nerve blocks for chronic pain conditions, ultrasound guided musculoskeletal injections and regenerative medicine techniques including Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP).
Dr. Mehta served as the team physician for multiple Division 1 Athletics including Columbia University, St. Peters College and St. Johns University. He has also served as volunteer physician coverage for the New York Marathon. He now plans to participate as one of the team physicians for the Dayton Dutch Lions soccer team.
Dr. Mehta emphasizes obtaining an accurate diagnosis and employing the least invasive options with keeping the patients interest in mind. We believe minimally-invasive, interventional and regenerative orthopedic procedures should often be considered before surgery, for most conditions, as first-line-of-defense treatment options for injuries that have failed conservative measures.
