Mark Klion has been helping triathletes optimize their performance and stay injury free for decades. I've raced side by side with Dr. Klion at the Ironman in Kona, Hawaii. I've also visited his Manhattan office for treatments and advice that kept me at the top of my game.

Having combined experience of more than 50 years of training and treating endurance athletes of every level, Dr. Mark Klion and Jonathan Cane (co-author of Triathlon Academy) know exactly what it takes to achieve optimal performance.
Dr. Klion and his staff are exceptional. My son broke his arm and because it was his first break we had to randomly select an Ortho. Luckily we picked this one. The office is run very efficiently with a friendly front desk crew. X-ray was done immediately and then right in to see Dr. Klion. I anticipated a long wait, but Dr. Klion's staff were a well oiled machine. We were in and out in no time.
Dr. Klion was not rushed and had a sense of humor while still very professional. We’ve had two additional follow-ups which were easy to schedule through the online patient portal.
Great communication, friendly and knowledgeable staff, and a healthy arm after a break. I’d highly recommend this practice.
Dr. Klion did an excellent job on my meniscus tear in my knee. He was averse to immediately recommend surgery and had me do physical therapy for 6+ months. When it became clear surgery was necessary, he quickly scheduled me, surgery went very smoothly, great recovery and he closely monitored my rehab. Surgery was mid-November and I ran a trail ultra-marathon by early May. Now I'm 2 years out and can hardly remember which knee he fixed.
