About Dr. Allert

Regularly named one of the region’s “Top Doctors”, Dr. Allert has already participated in the design of some of the latest implants for shoulder arthroscopy and replacement surgery. He was quickly inducted as a member into the American Shoulder and Elbow Society in recognition for his research contributions and operative technique, and is appointed as a reviewer for the Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery.

In 2019, he was selected as faculty at the “25th Annual Tampa Shoulder Arthroplasty and Sports” course. Attended by hundreds of orthopaedists from several different countries, fellow faculty included the likes of Dr. James Andrews and Dr. Richard Hawkins. In 2016, he was the recipient of the FOI “Top Research Paper” award for his work on developing a scoring system to help other surgeons decide how to treat massive rotator cuff tears. He has been recognized as a “key thought leader” at The Shoulder Summit Course held in Chicago, and he travels to serve as faculty instructor for annual courses including “Current Concepts in Upper Extremity Surgery” and “Updates in Shoulder and Elbow Arthroplasty”. He has lectured nationally on topics including treatment options for rotator cuff tears, shoulder arthroplasty, shoulder instability, and surgical techniques for proximal humerus fractures.

Dr. Allert earned his medical degree from New York Medical College and completed his orthopedic residency at Seton Hall University-St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center, where he was elected to be chief resident. Here he was also awarded the “Seton Hall University Endowed Scholarship Award”, in recognition of outstanding commitment to ethics, community service, and scholarship. He was born and raised in Staten Island, NY and attended The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) on full academic scholarship, thanks in part to a perfect SAT score. Here he was awarded scholar-athlete of the year as a member of the NCAA basketball team.

In his free time, Dr. Allert enjoys spending time with his daughter, playing basketball, scuba diving, cooking, swimming, crossfit, traveling with his wife, and running with his dog.

Dr. Allert has been treating Paul Wargelin following his car accident in Sept 2017. Dr. Allert is excellent! He did not prescribe addictive pain killers, but told Paul to take OTC med’s instead. He also did not advise surgery, unlike the ER dr. He said to just do exercises and keet it in a brace. We like Dr. Allert! Dr. Allert and Res Ortho, along with the folks at Ferraro Spine PT, took a terrible experience of being hit by a car, and made it into something positive!

Dr Jesse Allert is the best! After years of being in pain and not really knowing what was wrong with my elbow, I finally booked an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon. Dr. Jesse’s staff helped me make a prompt appt. and easily took care of my insurance issues. I was extremely impressed with the professionalism of the entire staff. Dr. Jesse easily put mind at ease regarding my treatment and care and thoroughly explained all my options for treatments. Most importantly – he took the time to really listen to my concerns and developed the best, individualized treatment plan for my lifestyle. I am pain free after a minimally invasive treatment – amazing results! Dr Jesse is a class act – he not only reached out to me a few days later to see how I was feeling, but also followed up with my wife to make sure she did not have any concerns.

What a gift we were given when Dr. Allert was on call for our mom’s emergency hip replacement surgery! His medical skill, bedside manner, and overall terrific disposition made a difficult situation much easier to manage. In the months after her surgery, he and his staff have been responsive and caring. We couldn’t ask for more!

This was my first visit to the office and with Dr. Allert. Dr. Allert was extremely knowledgable and took his time explaining what was going on with my shoulder as well as my options for recovery. I was not rushed in and out like other Dr. offices I have visited in the past. I would highly recommend Dr. Allert and his office.

I slipped and fractured my left shoulder this winter and had a CT scan at a local hospital. The orthopedic surgeon on call for the ER told me that I needed urgent surgery and even after the year long recovery, I would not regain full function. The next morning I consulted Dr Allert for a 2nd opinion who presented me with scientific data specific to my fracture suggesting NO surgery. 6 mos later, I am pain free and almost back to normal. Smart Medicine. Great Orthopedist. Highly recommend.
