J. Albert Diaz, MD is a specialist in the field of orthopaedics and sports medicine. Dr. Diaz completed his orthopaedic residency training at The Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City, and his sports medicine fellowship at the Minneapolis Sports Medicine Center where he served as Assistant Team Physician to the Minnesota Vikings and Timberwolves.

Dr. Diaz treats a variety of orthopaedic conditions and has a particular expertise in shoulder and knee injuries, as well as minimally invasive shoulder and knee arthroscopy.
