About Jeffrey F. Augustin

A board-certified orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Jeffrey Augustin specializes in arthroscopic and minimally invasive surgeries. He also performs knee and shoulder reconstruction,
joint replacement, and repair of sports-related injuries, including ACL and rotator cuff repair.

Dr. Augustin has been increasingly using orthobiologics, such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC) injections. “I’ve been incorporating
this more into my practice to help treat conditions such as chronic tendinopathies partial tendon tears, and ligament sprains as well as osteoarthritis,” he says. “It’s an alternative to traditional steroid injections, which can be harmful to joint tissue if used too much.Patients benefit from it because it’s less invasive than certain surgeries and there’s much less downtime.”

The Bayonne office offers on-site physical therapy, creating a continuity of care to optimize outcomes. Dr. Augustin’s aim is to get patients back to doing whatever it is they want to do—walk, participate in sports, or be a weekend warrior. He treats everyone from high school athletes to senior citizens. “The most satisfying thing is having patients return and say, ‘I’m back to playing tennis or golf again or lifting weights.’ That’s ultimately the goal.”

Dr. Augustin spends time with patients to understand their individual needs. “It’s not just about getting patients in and out,” he says. “I am more personalized. I try to treat all my patients with compassion and with each encounter leave them a little better off.”

He also gives back to the communities he serves by sponsoring and participating in local events for various causes.
