Dr. James "Beamer" Carr II is an Assistant Professor at Weill Cornell Medical College and an Assistant Attending Orthopedic Surgeon in the Sports Medicine Service at Hospital for Special Surgery. He grew up in Virginia where his father was an orthopedic trauma surgeon. His experiences as a collegiate baseball player and admiration for his late father inspired his specialization in orthopedic sports medicine. Clinically, Dr. Carr uses arthroscopic and minimally invasive techniques to treat most sports related injuries. He has a particular interest in shoulder, elbow and knee problems, including: rotator cuff tears, shoulder dislocations, labrum tears, ulnar collateral ligament tears, distal biceps tears, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears, and patella instability.
