At the Northwell Health Orthopaedic Institute, our fellowship-trained joint replacement surgeons are at the leading edge of technological innovation in the treatment of hip and knee diseases and disorders. Covering all of Long Island, Queens, Staten Island, Manhattan and Westchester, our joint replacement team - which also includes nurses, radiologists, and rehabilitation specialists - has the expertise to help you regain your quality of life without needing to travel long distances for treatment.

With a reputation for providing the highest quality of care, several of our hospitals have received the prestigious Joint Commission's Disease-Specific Care Certification for healthcare quality in knee and hip replacement surgery.

Our orthopaedic surgeons work closely with the Northwell Health Rehabilitation Network for specialized therapy , giving joint replacement patients the benefit of coordinated care before, during and after their procedure. Following surgery and discharge from the hospital, most patients seamlessly transition to care in their homes provided by the Northwell Health Home Care Network. Once the patient has progressed with care at home, they are ready for outpatient rehabilitation services where the rehabilitation therapists assess and guide patients back to their highest level of function.
