The mission of the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at NYU Long Island School of Medicine is to provide the foundation for a lifetime of medical learning and practice of orthopedic surgery. Our goal is to produce graduates who exemplify the highest ideals of our profession.

We also offer the Fragility Fracture Service, a multispecialty program designed to provide the best care possible for patients who have experienced fractures related to osteoporosis. A majority of these injuries are fractures of the hip, which in almost all cases benefit from surgical intervention. The Fragility Fracture Service team incorporates geriatrics, nursing, orthopedics, physical therapy, appropriate medical subspecialties, and other ancillary support including social work and patient care managers. The goal of this service is to maximize the quality and efficiency of hip fracture care while improving outcomes and reducing complications.
In addition, there is a focus on bone health and medical management of osteoporosis, which can help prevent fractures from occurring. At our outpatient bone health clinic, we provide screening, diagnosis, and individualized treatment plans for bone health, osteopenia, and osteoporosis. Among the first organized Fragility Fracture Services in the United States, our program continues to be a model used by other institutions.
The Total Joint Replacement Program is a multidisciplinary educational program we offer patients who are preparing to have joint replacement surgery. The goal of the program is to alleviate patient concerns regarding the hospital experience.
Patients are provided with the opportunity to interact with healthcare providers from various disciplines who will be contributing to their care before the procedure, along with follow-up education and communication regarding the entire joint replacement experience. This multidisciplinary program focuses on services that provide support to the patient and their family, beginning with a preoperative educational class and continuing throughout the patient’s recovery and beyond.
