Dr. Sahler completed his residency in physical medicine and rehabilitation at Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan where he was elected chief resident. He continued his training at Mount Sinai to complete a fellowship in sports medicine and interventional spine treatments. During that time, he also served as team physician for the Globe Institute Junior College sports teams, and was a physician and team captain for the New York City Marathon. He is board certified in sports medicine.

Dr. Sahler uses biomechanical assessments and diagnostic ultrasound to determine the precise source of a problem. He applies non-operative modalities to treat musculoskeletal injuries and restore proper function including ultrasound and X-ray guided steroidal injections, viscosupplementation and PRP (platelet rich plasma) to treat pain and restore proper mobility.

Both doctors are in network with Aetna, Oxford/United Healthcare and Yale New Haven Anthem.
