David S. Weiss MD: About my practice
Profile Pages Profile

My approach to orthopedic care is based upon my training in sports medicine.  My special interest is the care of orthopedic injuries to performing artists.  Although I no longer perform surgery, after operating for 30 years I know when surgery is necessary – and when it is not.

I am Orthopedist to Mark Morris Dance Group, Paul Taylor Dance Company, Parsons Dance Company, Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo, Ballet Hispanico, and The Roundabout Theatre Company.  I served as Orthopedist for the Merce Cunningham Dance Company from 1999 to 2011, when the company disbanded.

I have served as Orthopedist for over 90 Broadway and off-Broadway theatrical productions, including The Will Rogers Follies, Guys & Dolls, Miss Saigon, Cats, The Who’s Tommy, Grease, Monty Python's Spamalot, Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake, Riverdance on Broadway, Evita, War Horse, Motown, Les Misérable, A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder, Matilda, and Groundhog Day.  At present I serve as Orthopedist to Wicked at the Gershwin Theatre, Chicago at the Ambassador Theatre, The Book of Mormon at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre, Aladdin at the New Amsterdam Theatre, Hamilton at the Richard Rodgers Theatre, Dear Evan Hansen at the Music Box Theatre, Mean Girls at the August Wilson Theatre, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child at the Lyric Theatre, Beetlejuice at the Winter Garden Theatre, and Hadestown at the Walter Kerr Theatre.


Since 1987 I have served as Orthopedist to The Juilliard School, where I work with student musicians, dancers, actors and singers.
