About Thomas S. Bottiglieri, DO


Thomas S. Bottiglieri, DO, is a sports medicine physician specializing in the management of orthopedic injuries and disorders impacting athletes at all skill levels from adolescents to seniors. In addition to treating the full spectrum of muscle, bone, tendon, and joint injuries, Dr. Bottiglieri is a nationally recognized expert in the field of concussion care. His practice stresses shared decision-making with patients and their families and uses the latest medical technology, evidence-based sports medicine, and a compassionate, patient-centered approach.


As a former competitive athlete who sustained a career-ending injury, Dr. Bottiglieri has a personal connection with athletes and knows the benefits that athletics can provide. His practice tracks sports injuries in community organizations, school-based athletics, as well as professional and elite sports to better understand risk factors and appropriate treatment for athletic injuries. His practice stresses proper prevention and management strategies in order to minimize the physical and emotional toll of an athletic injury.


Dr. Bottiglieri is a regular contributor to local educational initiatives and an invited speaker at national medical conferences on the diagnosis and management of concussions, as well as the use of biologics in sport medicine. His ongoing research includes a large concussion registry, work on the autonomic nervous system in athletic brain injury, rehabilitation of post-concussion syndrome, and evaluating best-practices for the use of biologics in the treatment of athletic injuries and arthritis. Dr. Bottiglieri's practice is on the front line of advanced methods for joint preservation and soft-tissue treatment, including diagnostic ultrasound imaging and guided injection procedures designed to improve outcomes for routine cortisone injections, hyaluronic acid derivatives, and platelet-rich-plasma (PRP).


In addition to his academic and clinical work, Dr. Bottiglieri is a venue medical officer for the New York City Football Club, and is Head Team physician for the Alliance University Warriors and New Jersey Hitmen. He also serves as the medical director for numerous high schools in Bergen County, Passaic County, and New York City.


As the Director of Wellbeing for the Department of Orthopedics at Columbia, and Chairman of the committee for organizational culture, Dr Bottiglieri is keenly aware of the high demands and stressors on professionals. His approach to the overall mental and physical health of athletes transcends sport and applies to his work in optimizing performance while balancing stress at work. A healthy work-life balance, attention to mental health, and improving group dynamics for a supportive and thriving work environment are priorities in this domain.


Dr. Bottiglieri lives in Staten Island with his wife and four children. A strong believer in sport as medicine, he maintains an active lifestyle through martial arts, yoga, and exercise with his family.
