Orthopedic Surgery

The Department of Orthopedic Surgery at Westchester Medical Center provides state-of-the-art surgical treatment of debilitating musculoskeletal disorders such as sports or strain-related injuries of the knee, shoulder, hip, hand, or other joints, as well bone fractures, trauma, joint diseases and spinal injuries.

Through our academic alliance with New York Medical College, our department is involved in ongoing research and medical education to develop cutting edge orthopedic surgery procedures and best practices in the field of orthopedic science. Our focus on excellence and advanced technologies ensures the best care and treatment for our patients.

Full Range of Orthopedic Surgery Procedures

From severe disease to traumatic injury, our world-class orthopedic surgery team provides advanced surgical intervention with consistently successful results.

  • Arthritis: severe cases of arthritis sometimes require orthopedic surgery to alleviate pain and swelling. These procedures can bring relief through a variety of techniques including total joint replacement, removal of damaged or diseased joint lining, joint fusion and joint realignment.
  • Arthroscopy: often associated with knee surgery, arthroscopy involves the use of a small camera inserted into a joint area to view, diagnose and treat joint problems. Arthroscopic surgical instruments can be used in conjunction with the camera to complete the surgery with minimal pain and scarring.
  • Hand and Upper Extremity: Westchester Medical Center is the only hand replant center between Albany and New York City. However, our hand surgeons perform orthopedic surgeries to treat various conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, sports injuries, and severe cuts.
  • Joint Replacement: Some conditions may merit total joint replacement. Joints that are commonly replaced are knees and hips, although ankles, fingers and other joints may also be affected.
  • Orthopedic Trauma: As the Level 1 Trauma Center for the Hudson Valley region, we specialize in surgical treatment and intervention for severe musculoskeletal injuries such as complex fractures, crush injuries and spinal trauma.
  • Pediatric Orthopedics: Our Pediatric Division in Maria Fareri Children's Hospital specializes in treatment of musculoskeletal injuries and diseases in children.
  • Spine and Scoliosis: Scoliosis is a disfigurement of the spine which may be caused by disease or injury. Our Orthopedic Surgery Department provides surgical intervention for severe scoliosis which is not treatable with braces.
  • Sports Medicine: Sports medicine is the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of injuries sustained as a result of sports activity. Our Orthopedic Surgery Department houses a division of sports medicine specialists and we are one of only a few hospitals performing multi-ligament reconstructive services.
