Dr. Jason Fond is a highly respected sports medicine physician and orthopedic surgeon from Nanuet, New York. As a child, Jason spent his time running around the streets of Bergen County, New Jersey participating in various sports teams and community clubs. After graduating high school, Jason left his family’s home and enrolled at Tufts University, where he earned his undergraduate degree in 1991. Shortly after graduating, he started medical school, a decision he says was partially influenced by a severe injury he suffered as a teenager.
Albert Einstein College of Medicine provided Jason Fond with the foundation he needed to pursue a career in medicine. During his training from 1991 to 1995, Jason focused on orthopedic sports medicine, helping to place him at Montefiore Medical Center where Jason would complete his orthopedic surgery residency in 2000. To further his knowledge in sports medicine, Jason applied for and was accepted for the Sports Medicine Fellowship at the Nirschl Clinic of Georgetown University.
After a year at Georgetown University, Dr. Jason Fond was ready to begin his career as an orthopedic surgeon. He quickly established a private practice, Advanced Orthopedics, and Sports Medicine and began seeing patients. During this time, Dr. Fond was also appointed President of the Medical Staff at Nyack Hospital. In 2014, Dr. Fond merged his private practice with several other orthopedic practices in the Rockland County area to form Northeast Orthopedic and Sports Medicine, where Dr. Fond continues to help relieve patients’ pain and help them get back to the life they are supposed to be living.
Living with constant pain can be stressful. It can impact your quality of life and impact your ability to do your job. When a resident in Rockland County began experiencing pain in his elbow, his work began to suffer. As the pain became unbearable the man, a pizza maker, was afraid he would no longer be able to do what he loved. Unwilling to continue to live with the pain, he sought out Dr. Jason Fond, a well-known and highly successful orthopedic surgeon.
During the initial consultation, Dr. Jason Fond diagnosed the problem as tennis elbow. The Rockland County resident was instructed to rest and was given several rehabilitation techniques to try and relieve the pain and reverse the damage. Unfortunately, to Dr. Fond’s dismay, this form of treatment was not working, and it was clear that this case would need something more drastic. The only option available at the time was the traditional surgery that involved cutting open the elbow and surgically removing the damaged tissue.
For a year after the surgery, the pizza maker was pain-free and able to return to the job he loved. However, the relief was short-lived, and in 2014, he returned to Dr. Jason Fond with the hopes of finding a permanent solution. This time, Dr. Fond had a new, minimally invasive treatment called TENEX, and alternative procedure to the traditional surgery. With his years of experience, Dr. Fond was able to repair his patient’s tendons without resorting to the traditional invasive surgery, and unlike the last time, Dr. Fond’s patient was back to work within a few days.
Dr. Jason Fond is a well-known and highly respected orthopedic surgeon from Nanuet, New York. As an owner and partner of Northeast Orthopedics and Sports Medicine in Rockland County, Dr. Fond is kept busy. To maintain a healthy work/life balance, he is committed to spending time doing the things he enjoys.
Growing up Dr. Jason Fond was extremely active in sports. This passion influenced his decision to become an orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine physician. As a teenager, Dr. Fond suffered a devastating injury while diving, resulting in spinal surgery, during which several of his vertebrae had to be fused together. This injury didn’t stop Dr. Fond, and soon after his recovery he was back to participating in the sports he loved.
As an adult, Dr. Jason Fond still enjoys participating in sports like basketball and golf, as well as watching them whenever he has the chance and bringing his children along as a way to share his passion. He also coaches them in their various sports activities. Dr. Fond’s family also enjoys the performing arts and cooking together as a family.
Another passion that Dr. Jason Fond always finds time for, is volunteering at local charitable organizations. Dr. Fond uses his medical knowledge and skills to help those in need that can’t afford to pay for medical services. He believes that to create a well-balanced and meaningful life, you have to give back to your community. Dr. Fond says that helping those in his community that are less fortunate then he is, gives him a sense of pride and is the least he can do for his community.
