We perform over 2,000 joint replacements and reconstruction surgeries a year. Like the matching joint replacements we provided for Barbara and Joel Taub. Watch the video for their story.
We pair the best orthopaedists with the most state-of-the-art technology.
We work closely with experts in rheumatology, radiology, physiotherapy and more to provide all of our patients with comprehensive, coordinated care.
We treat patients of all ages including many that other institutions rejected because of age or illness.
And when surgery is necessary we make sure patients and their families are prepared. We provide pre-operative education classes and expert consultations from anesthesiologists who specialize in pain management.
There has to be a better way are words that inspire breakthrough and invention.
Joint replacements wear out in some people very early. Understanding why is limited. Our lab unlocked the mystery of the cellular mechanism by which joint replacements fail.
Metallic debris generated in many prosthesis can cause devastating tissue reaction, resulting in pain and disability. Our lab reported the molecular level explanation for the process.
This discovery lead to the development of uncemented hip replacements which we were the first in the NY Metro area to perform.
Our department hosts the first and only Annual Musculoskeletal Repair and Rengernation Symposium in the NY Metro area.
With all the musculoskeletal researchers in the region coming together to present their work, the symposium plays a critical role in centralizing research data.
The collaboration can result in the development of new treatments, new protocols and the next big research breakthroughs in collaboration with our labs at Einstein.
