“If I saw Dr. Weinstein first, I could have been dancing in two months, not two years.”
- JULIA OLIVIERI
Knee Surgery Patient

Julia Olivieri fell in love with dance competitions in fourth grade. At fifteen, Julia suffered a painful knee injury while dancing. After surgery and a year of physical therapy, she still couldn’t dance. That’s when she went for a second opinion with a surgeon at the White Plains Hospital Center for Orthopedic & Spine Surgery. Dr. Rick Weinstein performed minimally invasive knee surgery. In just two months, Julia was back in the dance studio.

At White Plains Hospital, we have built a world-class program for orthopedics, spine surgery, and sports medicine.
