NSPG is a group practice of more than 200 doctors, nurse practitioners and medical professionals who provide high-quality, compassionate health care in convenient locations throughout the North Shore.

Our specialist in non-surgical orthopedics, Navid Mahooti, MD, MPH, is board certified in both sports medicine and family medicine. Dr. Mahooti uses techniques in non-surgical orthopedics to treat sports injuries as well as conditions that are not sports-related. He is a specialist in injury prevention and the treatment of sports-related concussions. Patients receive treatment in non-surgical orthopedics at his office in Danvers.

Treatments options in non-surgical orthopedics available through NSPG:

  • Musculoskeletal ultrasound to assess orthopedic problems.
  • Ultrasound-guided injections of “cortisone” and other injected treatments.
  • Advanced biologic treatments such as Platelet Rich Plasma (“PRP”).

For conditions that cannot be treated through non-surgical orthopedics, Dr. Mahooti or members of our internal medicine group can refer patients to other NSPG experts, such as a spine specialist, or to another type of specialist at North Shore Medical Center.
