Brian Kessler M.D.
“New York City is tough on the body,” Dr. Kessler says. “Hard work and long commutes cause not only aches and pains, but also trauma to the body. I believe in helping people return to a pain-free life. You don’t have to be a professional athlete to receive the highest quality pain management and rehabilitation. Whatever the cause of your pain, we’re here to help.” Dr. Brian Kessler has been the Medical Director of Spine and Sports Medicine since 2000. He received his Bachelor’s Degree from Emory University and his MD from St. George’s University School of Medicine. Dr. Kessler completed his medical internship in General Surgery at Easton Hospital, in Easton, Pennsylvania. His residency in General Surgery was accomplished at Lincoln Hospital Medical Center, a Level One Trauma Center in the Bronx. Dr. Kessler handled spine, orthopedic and head trauma while serving as a Surgical House Physician at seven New York City area hospitals and trauma centers, including Wyckoff Heights Hospital, King’s County Medical Center, and the Elmhurst Hospital Center, a teaching affiliate of the Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. Dr. Kessler previously owned and directed an urgent and primary care and ambulatory center in Rockland County, NY, which was subsequently acquired by Beth Israel Medical Center to support their premier healthcare network. Combining the skill of running a topnotch medical practice in this city with depth of experience in orthopedics and trauma of the spine and head, Dr. Kessler works hard to be an excellent New York physician who understands the importance of maintaining good health.
