Dr. Jaffe specializes in arthroscopic surgery, computer navigation and robotic-assisted surgery, knee and hip surgery, sports medicine as well as total and partial joint replacement surgery.
Dr. Jaffe became an orthopedic surgeon because he enjoys helping people improve their mobility and quality of life.
What sets him apart is his unique background. Dr. Jaffe started his education as a liberal art major in college.
