I am happy to see my great friend for over 30y, Best Man at my wedding and outstanding rehab doc Jeff Pavell looking stronger than ever after I repaired his ruptured distal biceps tendon through an 1.5 inch single incision. He is one of the best at giving spinal and joint injections / procedures that I know of Dr. Jeff Pavell
Dr. Seldes I am so grateful to you for giving me my life back. I was in so much pain from my knee, I was in agony. Because of you I can now look forward to living my life again without the pain I had that was threatening to overcome me. I feel like I have had a miracle happen for me. I am once again so happy

I had a very bad rotator cuff tear that several other top surgeons said was beyond repair. I found Dr. Seldes through an Internet search and he said he could help me. I went from being crippled with pain to being totally pain-free. I felt like a new person.
Dr. Richard Seldes, a board-certified orthopedic surgeon and director of orthopedic surgery at Northwell Health’s Long Island Jewish Forest Hills hospital since 2006, calls such surgery an “elective procedure,” one that is based on a “personal decision by the patient.”
Some people have such severe pain that they are unable to do things for themselves. “If arthritis affects daily living, it’s usually time to have surgery,” Seldes suggested.
