Dr. Purcell specializes in orthopedic surgery as well as hand/upper extremity surgery. He has a particular interest in utilizing minimally invasive procedures for his patients. Dr. Purcell was one of the first orthopedists to popularize the endoscopic surgical technique for treating carpal tunnel syndrome, which leads to a faster healing time.

His other areas of interest include biological regeneration/rejuvenation of joints, arthritis, tendinitis, nerve compression, repetitive stress disorders, sports medicine and trauma.

Over the course of Dr. Purcell’s career, his care of athletes has ranged from treating weekend warriors to being the team orthopedic surgeon for various school teams to being a team orthopedic surgeon for the New York area professional teams, including the New York Yankees, New Jersey Devils, New York Rangers, and New York Islanders. In addition, he has been an orthopedist for Professional Golf Association (PGA) players, professional boxers, wrestlers, track and field athletes as well as runners and marathoners.
