Having previously played competitive baseball, soccer, and collegiate ice
hockey, Dr. Fibel has an interest in caring for athletes who play a variety
of sports and has an appreciation for the demands of higher-level athletics.
Dr. Fibel sees patients of all ages including adolescents participating

Dr. Fibel’s expertise lies in his conservative, non-surgical approach
to sports-related injuries including those that are acute, chronic, or
from overuse. While his goal is to help patients avoid surgery and return
to their activities, he has an in-depth understanding of surgical indications
which allows him to provide appropriate recommendations and guidance to
all of his patients.
