Four new surgeons have joined the center’s 12 existing physicians to expand care and services in the areas of total joint replacement, sports medicine, spine, foot and ankle, shoulder, elbow and hand injuries. This facility gives patients new and direct on-site access to radiologists, rheumatologists, and pain management physicians for coordinated care.

A larger facility means patients won’t have to wait weeks or months to see a world-renowned specialist.”
Additionally, the Orthopaedic Center at Mount Sinai West will serve as a major teaching site for medical students, residents, and fellows in all areas of orthopedics.
