Buechel, Jr. MD is one of the leading orthopaedic surgeons and knee specialists in New York City.  A knee specialist is a doctor that spends the majority of their practice treating patients with knee pain, knee problems, and knee injuries and offers a full range of non-surgical and surgical treatment options.

Dr. Buechel is an orthopaedic surgeon that listens very carefully to each patients’ individual complaints, physically examines their knees, looks at their x-rays, MRIs, CT scans or photos and then provides options on how to correct, or manage the problem.
