Excelsior's Story

Excelsior Orthopaedics was officially formed in 2002, however its roots date back to the 1960s. From the beginning, the physicians and medical professionals involved in this vision have been committed to offering the most advanced, compassionate, comprehensive musculoskeletal care in Western New York. Today, Excelsior is the product of several mergers and transitions. The result is a practice that is 100% owned and operated by the physicians who treat patients here each day. This physician-owned model allows for physicians and caregivers to offer patients the care and attention they deserve, each and every visit.

Leading Orthopaedic Care

Over time, what began as two small orthopaedic practices has become an area leader for musculoskeletal care and innovation, including advanced surgery techniques, a free-standing ambulatory surgery center that is home to WNY’s first comprehensive outpatient total joint program, an impressive suite of in-house services such as physical therapy, nutrition counseling, and imaging. It has become a community hub for sports training, athletic training, and youth sports support. Excelsior was proud to be the first in the area to open an orthopaedic urgent care center and expand that single clinic bay to now offer four prominent orthopaedic urgent care centers. As reflected in the mission and core values, Excelsior is committed to innovative care that is driven by patient needs and supported by the most skilled, experienced team in Western New York.
