Dr. Jay Binder is a board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine, joint replacement of the hip and knee, arthroscopy of the shoulder, knee, and hip, and fracture care. He is an expert in treating sports injuries and conditions, specializing in knee and shoulder injuries.

Bringing the services of a seasoned sports medicine expert to the Crescent City Orthopedics team, Dr. Binder is a trusted resource for injured athletes in Metairie and the surrounding areas of New Orleans. Because he has called New Orleans his home since childhood, his name has become well known locally.

Dr. Binder earned his undergraduate degree at Honors College at The University of Southern Mississippi, graduating with honors before turning to Tulane University for his Master of Public Health and Doctor of Medicine degrees. He continued his education at Tulane University School of Medicine to complete his surgery internship, orthopedic surgery residency, and sports medicine fellowship.

With his extensive experience, Dr. Binder had the opportunity to serve as the director of the Sports Medicine Center and a partner of the Bone and Joint Center in Metairie before joining Crescent City Orthopedics in 2015.

Dr. Binder helps local athletes—both professionals and weekend warriors—reach their full potential and recover from their sports injuries. Over the course of his career, he has treated athletes from a range of athletic backgrounds, sports, and performance levels, including gymnasts on the USA Gymnastics team. He was recruited to the USA Gymnastics Board of Directors, and he uses his knowledge and expertise to help the gymnasts prepare for and perform in competitions around the globe. 

Whenever possible, Dr. Binder will first treat his patients using conservative, nonsurgical treatments before suggesting surgical options, such as arthroscopic procedures and other minimally invasive techniques. 

To aid in the process of healing, recovery, and rehab, Dr. Binder educates his patients and helps them understand their orthopedic conditions or injuries so that they can recover as quickly and safely as possible. 
Outside of his extensive medical commitments, which include attending Olympic trials and world championships, Dr. Binder enjoys playing golf, snow skiing, and baking in his free time. 
Dr. Binder is available to see patients at our offices in Metairie and Covington
