Wayne, N.J.-based University Spine Center, Academy Orthopaedics and High Mountain Orthopedics have merged to form OrthoEast.
OrthoEast has sixteen physicians, five of whom are spine surgeons: Arash Emami, MD; Ki Hwang, MD; Kumar Sinha, MD; Michael Faloon, MD; and Nikhil Sahai, MD.
The practice has 6 locations across New Jersey and New York.
Ortho East physicians are affiliated with several universities and medical centers in the region, including Morristown, N.J.-based Atlantic Health, Valley Hospital in Ridgeview, N.J. Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City and Seton Hall University in South Orange, N.J., and Montclair (N.J.) State University.
"It's an exciting time for us all as we merge these three independently successful practices into one newly-formed venture," William Matarese, MD, an orthopedic surgeon at High Mountain Orthopedics, said in an Aug. 10 news release. "Our visions are closely aligned and that favorably positions us to execute on our ambitious goals together."
