Todd C. Battaglia, MD, MS

Dr. Battaglia is a board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon specializing in the treatment of sports injuries of all types, with a particular focus on arthroscopic and reconstructive surgery of the knee and shoulder. This includes treatment of rotator cuff and instability problems of the shoulder, as well as treatment of ligament, cartilage and meniscal injuries of the knee.

Dr. Battaglia has received Subspecialty Board Certification in Orthopaedic Sports Medicine from the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery. This certification is for those Board-certified orthopaedic surgeons who have demonstrated qualifications in sports medicine beyond those expected of other orthopaedic surgeons by virtue of additional training, a practice characterized by a majority of cases in sports medicine, and contributions to this field.

A native of central New York, he grew up in Marcellus where he lettered in lacrosse, soccer, and basketball. He then attended Amherst College in western Massachusetts, earning his degree in psychology and captaining the lacrosse and rugby teams. After graduating magna cum laude from medical school at the State University of New York at Buffalo, he completed orthopaedic residency at the University of Virginia, where he assisted in the care of both the UVa and James Madison University athletic teams. While in Virginia, he also earned a Master's Degree studying the effects of growth factors on tendon and bone healing. He then completed a fellowship in sports medicine and advanced arthroscopic surgery at the New England Baptist Hospital, one of the top orthopaedic hospitals in the country, where he was a team physician for Harvard University and the Boston Celtics.

Dr. Battaglia is a partner with Syracuse Orthopedic Specialists, PC, and serves as head physician for numerous area high school and collegiate teams, including Syracuse University. He is an active member of the Arthroscopy Association of North America (AANA) and the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM), and has authored or co-authored more than 30 scientific articles and book chapters. He sits on the editorial board of Arthroscopy, the premier journal of his specialty and is an Associate Master Instructor for AANA, teaching advanced arthroscopic methods to other physicians across the country.
