2016 NJ Top Doctor – Dr. Pollack

Michael E. Pollack, MD has been named a 2016 Jersey Choice Best Doctor in New Jersey Monthly ‘s annual survey. Dr. Pollack, a sports medicine specialist at MidJersey Orthopaedics, was one of Orthopedists given this designation in the state of New Jersey.

Ballots were sent to the state’s practicing physicians asking them who they would send a loved one to in more than forty specialties. NJ Monthly’s peer reviewed process commissions an independent survey of over 24,000 NJ based doctors. Final professional selections are reviewed by a panel of 25 doctors.

“I enjoy caring for active and athletic patients of all ages and treating their shoulder, elbow, and knee problems,” Dr. Michael E. Pollack says. “Everything I do is geared toward treating each individual and avoiding unnecessary surgery. If surgery is indicated, my techniques minimize the procedure, decrease pain and accelerate recovery time.”

Fellowship trained in shoulder, knee and minimally invasive procedures, Dr. Pollack also routinely treats all athletic injuries and fractures. He is a partner at MidJersey Orthopaedics (MJO), a 13 physician, regional multispecialty practice that has delivered musculoskeletal care for more than four decades. Dr. Pollack is excited to now help anchor MJO’s recently opened state-of-the-art office in Bridgewater, NJ.
