Dr. Andrew D. Pearle is a board-certified Orthopedic Surgeon at Hospital for Special Surgery, specializing in Sports Medicine. Dr. Pearle's clinical interests include arthroscopic and robotic surgery of the shoulder, knee, and ankle. He is an Associate Team Physician for the New York Mets and Editor-in-Chief of the Orthopedic Journal Techniques in Knee Surgery. A graduate of Amherst College and Stanford Medical School, Dr. Andrew Pearle completed training in orthopedic surgery and sports medicine at Hospital for Special Surgery. Dr. Pearle was recruited as an attending orthopedic surgeon at Hospital for Special Surgery and was selected to develop one of the first Computer Assisted Surgery programs in the United States. Computer Assisted Surgery uses navigation, which is like a "GPS for orthopedic surgery," says Dr. Pearle, who is conducting research to bring these techniques from bench to bedside. He has now performed more types of robotic and computer assisted procedures than any orthopedic surgeon in the country.
