Orthopedic Services in Toms River, NJ


Our History

Our Toms River location is the former Ocean County Sports Medicine (OCSM) practice which was established in 1988 by Dr. Joseph C. Tauro, a nationally recognized innovator in orthopedic care for surgical and non-surgical musculoskeletal problems. In 2023, AOSMI and Dr. Tauro partnered, bringing OCSM into the AOSMI network. Dr. Tauro is the Medical Director of this facility. He specializes in the prevention and treatment of complex sports injuries and degenerative joint conditions.

Advanced Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute takes pride in educating patients, putting their needs first to collaborate with patients who play an active role in decision-making and treatment. The innovative procedures and techniques employed by AOSMI can dramatically improve patient outcomes.

Everyone here at AOSMI Toms River is personally connected to each patient’s unique journey to wellness throughout the entire healing process. This ensures superior results, minimizing discomfort, scarring and length of recovery for our patients

Our Specialties

At AOSMI Toms River we specialize in surgeries for the shoulder, knee and hip, including arthroscopic rotator cuff repair, direct anterior hip replacement, ligament repair, shoulder replacement, joint preservation, meniscal transplant and cartilage transplant. Dr. Tauro is at the forefront for the development of new techniques, implants, and instrumentation for arthroscopic and open shoulder surgery as well as minimally invasive joint replacement.

Additionally, because of Dr. Tauro’s affiliations, some medical issues involving the spine, hands or feet can be referred to an extensive list of nationally recognized subspecialists associated with the orthopedic department at Rutgers Medical School or across the country.
