The Institute for Orthopedic Medicine and Surgery

Orthopedic Medicine and Surgery

The Institute for Orthopedic Medicine and Surgery at New York Methodist Hospital combines a unique team of specialists, facilities, and medical services to provide comprehensive treatment for orthopedic disorders (disorders of the bones, joints, tendons, ligaments, and nerves).

Many people tolerate pain because they haven't found comprehensive care for orthopedic problems. Because pain in one area can be a sign for a broad range of different orthopedic disorders, it's important to have access to a broad range of specialists and services who are committed to helping people live without pain.

Referrals to our specialists or to other orthopedic programs and services can be made through a patient's primary care physician or through the Institute's physician referral service.

Find a physician affiliated with this Institute or call 866.ORTHO.11 (866.678.4611).

Download the Institute's Brochure or request that a brochure be mailed to you.
