About Dr. John Kripsak
Dr. Kripsak has been serving the Bridgewater community for more than 20 years. All his patients—from children to adults, from recreational athletes to the pros—benefit from his exceptional approach to care, which includes accurate diagnosis, thorough treatment and friendly bedside manner. He has a special empathy for his patients, having sustained his own sports-related injuries as a high school and college athlete.
Trained extensively in nonsurgical options for healing, Dr. Kripsak offers patients a range of minimally invasive high-tech therapeutic procedures that do not require general anesthesia, pose no or low risk of wound infection, and eliminate the need for prolonged physical therapy. His diagnostic tools are just as sophisticated and include musculoskeletal ultrasound, which provides detailed images of such body structures as tendons and soft tissue not seen on regular x-ray.
Board certified in both sports medicine and family practice, Dr. Kripsak currently is Director of Sports Medicine at Somerset Medical Center. He also is the team physician for Sky Blue FC Women’s Professional Soccer League, Somerset Patriots Baseball and Bridgewater Raritan High School. Additionally, he sits on the medical advisory board of the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association. He is a diplomat of the National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners and a member of the American Osteopathic Association, the American College of Sports Medicine and the American Osteopathic Association of Sports Medicine. Dr. Kripsak holds a medical degree from Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed his postgraduate training at Sun Coast Hospital in Florida. Raised in Bridgewater, he founded the top-rated Bridgewater Raritan East High School Lacrosse Program as a teenage athlete.
