LIJ Medical Center
Welcome to Long Island Jewish Medical Center's award-winning Department of Orthopaedic Surgery in New Hyde Park, New York. Our department is part of an extensive network of world-class orthopaedic resources available through the Orthopaedic Institute at North Shore-LIJ Health System. Our orthopaedic program is recognized nationally and internationally as a leader in patient care, education and research. Our expert clinicians are part of a multidisciplinary healthcare team of high-caliber specialists. Together we develop an individualized care plan for each patient that encompasses every stage from diagnosis and treatment to rehabilitation, recovery and follow-up.
Our mission is to provide quality and excellence in patient care. The first step to mobility and appropriate care is the right diagnosis, and we at LIJ Medical Center are skilled at providing such care. We are also dedicated to performing orthopaedic research that transforms ideas into cutting-edge treatments for our patients.
The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery provides care to patients with injuries of the musculoskeletal system. This includes but is not limited to fractures, sports injuries, spinal disorders and deformity, arthritis, osteoporosis, joint reconstruction, hand injuries and trauma. We have over 25 actively practicing specially trained orthopaedic surgeons on staff as well as orthopaedic residents and physician assistants. Over 4,000 surgeries are performed every year.
Center for Joint Preservation and Restoration at LIJ Medical Center
Areas of expertise include:
- Joint Reconstruction of the Knee, Hip, Shoulder – After decades of advances in the techniques and technology of joint replacement and reconstruction, joint reconstructive surgery has become very commonplace today and allows patients who have suffered from chronic, debilitating pain return to a normal, active lifestyle. When revision surgery is required in cases where artificial joint prostheses have worn out, many physicians in the surrounding area refer their patients to our very qualified and competent surgeons. Revision surgery is often more complex than the original surgery.
- Shoulder/Sports Medicine – Athletes at all levels of ability from amateur to professional are treated by fellowship trained and board certified physicians.
- Hand and Wrist – Our service is dedicated to general and specialized care of the hand, wrist and upper extremity.
- Spinal Surgery – We treat complex problems of the spinal column from the base of the skull to the coccyx with the latest microscopically and minimally invasive procedures.
- Pediatric Orthopaedics – Our pediatric orthopedic surgeons have the resources of Steven and Alexandra Cohen Children's Medical Center of New York available to them and the patients they serve.
- Research – The focus of our research program is novel approaches for the repair and regeneration of the musculoskeletal system.
- Foot and Ankle – We treat the many complex diseases, disorders and traumas of the lower extremities.
- Trauma – The Level I Trauma Center at North Shore University Hospital and the Pediatric Level I Trauma Center at Long Island Jewish Medical Center provide excellent treatment of all traumatic injuries affecting children, adolescents and adults.
- Oncology – We are fortunate to have a board certified orthopaedic surgical oncologist on staff with expertise treating both children and adults with bone and soft tissue malignancies.
