Advanced Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute (AOSMI), Expands into Toms River with the Addition of Joseph Tauro, MD

We are thrilled to announce the partnership between Advanced Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute (AOSMI) and Joseph Tauro, MD and the former, Ocean County Sports Medicine! This collaboration is a significant milestone in our journey to enhance the quality of care and services we offer to our patients. By combining our strengths, we firmly believe we can reach new heights, offering improved services and advancing medical practices for the benefit of our patients, medical professionals, and the broader community.

Advanced Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute (AOSMI) is a leading provider of orthopedic care and sports medicine services in New Jersey, renowned for our commitment to delivering the highest quality care and ability to attract and retain top doctors in the industry. Our team consists of highly skilled orthopedic surgeons, physiatrists, physical therapists, and a multitude of musculoskeletal specialists dedicated to helping patients achieve their goals and regain an active lifestyle.

With this alliance, Ocean County Sports Medicine will undergo a name change, now joining the AOSMI brand name and growing the AOSMI network to 8 total locations across Monmouth, Ocean, Middlesex and Mercer counties.

This partnership will only further enhance the excellent care patients have come to expect from both groups. We remain committed to delivering the same high-quality care and personalized attention that patients have been accustomed to over the years, but now with greater resources and support.

In the coming months, you can look forward to the evolution of our partnership taking shape at our new Toms River facility as we transition in-office signage, our website, and beyond, to reflect all the improvements we are excited to bring to you. Our mission has always been to afford patients a personalized experience that focuses on the whole body, and through this transition, we are confident in our ability to continue delivering transformative outcomes in convenient ways.
