Dr. Goldwyn is an Assistant Professor of Clinical Orthopedic Surgery at Weill Cornell Medicine.

His favorite thing to do is spend time outdoors with his wife and three children.

Why Orthopedics?

"I chose a career in Orthopedics because musculoskeletal conditions are some of the most common and debilitating ailments we suffer from. Modern treatments are highly successful and allow our patients to return to healthy, pain-free, active lifestyles."

Why practice in Queens?

"This area provides me the opportunity to help patients at a critically traumatic and unexpected moment in their lives and help them to recover as quickly and successfully as possible."
