About Anil Sharma – OrthoEast

Drs. Arash Emami, Anil Sharma, Kumar Sinha, and Anthony Scillia are part of the newly formed OrthoEast, a practice that includes 16 board-certified, award-winning orthopedic specialists who provide New Jersey and New York patients with the most advanced treatments in all areas of orthopedic care, from pain management and sports medicine to the treatment of complex spinal disorders. They were previously part of three renowned orthopedic medical groups in New Jersey: the University Spine Center, Academy Orthopedics, and High Mountain Orthopedics.

“This new partnership of elite orthopedic groups will be transformative, as we all come together to deliver the very best treatment approaches, drive innovation, and create greater access for patients to receive world-class orthopedic care,” says Dr. Emami, founder and CEO of University Spine Center. He is an orthopedic spine surgeon specializing in operative and non-surgical treatment of adult and pediatric spinal disorders.

Dr. Scillia is an orthopedic surgeon with sub-specialties in adult and pediatric sports medicine. “OrthoEast is a much needed multi-specialty option for patients who seek a higher level of service,” he says.

Accurately diagnosing the cause of pain, treating it with minimally invasive injections or procedures, and avoiding the use of potentially addicting pain medications have been the guiding principles behind Dr. Sharma’s pain management practice for the 28 past years. “I am excited to be part of OrthoEast, and the future is bright,” says Dr. Sharma.

Dr. Sinha is an orthopedic spine surgeon specializing in the correction of spinal deformities and minimally invasive surgical techniques. “OrthoEast extends our footprint, allowing us to offer more services to a wider audience,” he says.

As part of OrthoEast’s award-winning team of highly skilled orthopedic specialists, these Top Doctors provide New Jersey and New York patients with the most advanced treatments in all areas of orthopedic care, from pain management and sports medicine to the treatment of complex spinal disorders. Utilizing a comprehensive approach and cutting-edge techniques, such as the latest biologics and robotics, they ensure that each patient receives the best possible outcome, whether it’s through conservative care or advanced minimally invasive surgery.

While dedicated to providing patients with solutions to recover without surgery, when necessary, they and all of the board-certified, fellowship-trained experts at OrthoEast perform the most advanced procedures in adult and pediatric scoliosis, spinal fusion, ACL repairs, arthroscopic shoulder surgery, anterior approach joint replacement, minimally invasive fracture care, hand surgery, and interventional spine procedures.
