Division of Adult Reconstructive Surgery
The Division of Adult Reconstructive Surgery in NYU Long Island School of Medicine’s Department of Orthopedic Surgery has a long history of pioneering joint replacement for our Long Island community. We continue this illustrious tradition by collaborating with our NYU Langone partners in Manhattan and Brooklyn to provide the highest-quality care possible for patients who seek hip and knee replacement surgery.
Capitalizing on an experienced team utilizing cutting-edge advances in care, most of our first-time hip or knee replacement patients are safely discharged home within one day of surgery. Our surgeons continue to develop and use some of the most advanced technology available—including robotic-assisted techniques and computer navigation—to optimize our patient outcomes from joint replacement surgery. These initiatives have led to fewer complications and excellent results.
Our physicians, physician assistants, and nurses emphasize education as a vital part of the adult reconstruction program. We have trained and continue to train the future leaders and generations of orthopedic surgeons and professionals through integrated classroom, virtual simulation, and direct patient care experiences. In addition to educating trainees in NYU Long Island School of Medicine’s Orthopedic Surgery Residency, our Total Joint Replacement Program trains fellows from NYU Grossman School of Medicine’s Adult Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship as they prepare to enter practice.
Our current research in adult reconstruction and joint replacement focuses on improving patient outcomes and satisfaction through the development of new products and innovative surgical techniques, including opiate-sparing procedures. The main goal of our orthopedic research is to encourage continuous quality improvement to assure that we remain on the leading edge of the best orthopedic surgery techniques.
Medical students wishing to explore orthopedic surgery may enroll in electives with our division as part of NYU Long Island School of Medicine’s MD curriculum. We also offer an opportunity for interested visiting medical students to participate in an orthopedic surgery away rotation.
