“My goal as an orthopaedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine is to return my patients to their active lifestyle. For some this might mean an Ironman competition, while for others it is a walk around NYC.”

What our patients say
I just wanted to take a moment and share my story and wonderful experience with The Womans Sports Medicine Clinic and Doctor Sabrina Strickland at the Hospital for Special Surgery. As you can see, I am not “local” to NYC. It is an effort to come to Manhattan, but the effort it well worth it.
The entire experience at HSS has been positive and singularly focused on getting me back to sports. I cannot thank you or Sr. Strickland enough for giving me my life back…
We would like to honor Dr. Strickland for her recognition of my daughters (h) EDS and for sending her for Genetic Testing. We received the good news that she didn’t have Type III(Vascular) and the bad news of BRCA 1 mutation. However, that enabled us to get Olivia into the MSK screening program. Please encourage EDS awareness at HSS. You were FAR from the 1st doc Olivia saw. Thank you for your insight.Olivia's Mom
I came to Dr. Strickland scared, anxious, and in immense pain as a result of a significant shoulder injury. From the outset Dr. Strickland balanced compassion and kindness with extreme thoroughness and competency. She recognized right away that my situation required a sense of urgency and in facilitating an immediate MRI she was able to quickly uncover and repair an issue that would have likely caused lifelong pain had it not been corrected in a timely manner.Jerrell Antley
