You might try Dr. Loren Fishman, a physiatrist (a perfectly good kind of m.d. who specializes in physical medicine). His approach is definitely holistic and he's a very smart, caring guy, who's not averse to accupuncture, yoga, meds or anything else that might be useful in working out physical problems. I see him for my back. He's at 3 E. 83rd St, 212 472-5688. Only problem is, as with most of the good docs who handle orthopedic problems, there's a long lead time for appointments. You might ask about his clinic hours which I believe are at Flushing Hospital in Queens (and which could be absoolutely wrong or irrelevant).

My ortho for my knee is a cyclist and helped me get back to cycling. His name is Dr. Brian Halpern, 525 East 71st Street, Manhattan, 212-606-1329. Good luck with the knee!
