Dr. Konsens is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon who specializes in sports medicine and reconstruction of the knee. He developed his interest in sports medicine and joint care after winning track championships as a long jumper on his New York high school and Dartmouth College teams.
He went on to complete his medical training at Icahn School of Medicine at Mt. Sinai (New York City) and his residency in orthopedic surgery at Mt. Sinai Medical Center (Cleveland). He performed fellowships in total joint replacement at the internationally acclaimed Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre (Oxford, England) and in knee surgery at Jewett Orthopaedic Clinic.
Dr. Konsens is a team physician for the Orlando Magic, University of Central Florida, Rollins College and World Cup soccer players.
Thirty years after his last long jump, Dr. Konsens set a goal of returning to competition — this time at the United States Masters National Championships. He succeeded and earned a bronze medal. He also qualified for the World Masters Championships, where he placed in the Top 10.
If you have a talent or knack for something, see it through, he says. Go do it, and do it your entire life. We almost never tell people they are too old for surgery anymore. If you’re 100 years old and you’re healthy and you’ve taken care of yourself, we don’t limit what we can do to help you out.
Dr. Konsens is trained in Conformis Customized Knee Replacements and certified in MAKOplasty robotic-assisted surgery. He is a member of the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery.
