Orthopaedics at The Allen Hospital

Orthopaedic surgeons at NewYork-Presbyterian/The Allen Hospital provide non-surgical and surgical care for a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions in adults. Our orthopaedic surgeons treat more than 4,000 patients each year, using the latest technology and offering minimally invasive surgery whenever possible. We offer the benefits of academic medicine (doctors who teach orthopaedics to the next generation and at conferences, speak at national meetings, and are leaders in the field) in the setting of a personalized, patient-oriented hospital.

Specialized services within the Orthopaedic Section include:

  • Foot and Ankle Care, including staff who treat foot and ankle trauma; toe, foot, and ankle deformities; and arthritic conditions of the foot and ankle
  • Sports Medicine, treating sports-related injuries to the musculoskeletal system, including the shoulder, elbow, and knee
  • The Spine Hospital - The treatment of disorders of the neck and spine requires an integrated approach uniting the expertise of doctors, nurses, physical and occupational therapists, and other members of the healthcare team. From skull to sacrum, The Spine Hospital provides comprehensive and coordinated spine care and treatment for spinal conditions, from the most common arthritic and degenerative spine disorders to the rarest and most difficult-to-treat spinal deformities. Our innovative care is available to meet the needs of adults and children from our region, the United States, and abroad. Our team's shared goal is to restore mobility and function, significantly improving quality of life wherever possible.
  • Center for Hip and Knee Replacement, one of the few institutions in New York City that offers both computer-guided knee replacement and partial knee replacement, allowing for smaller incisions and a quicker recovery
  • Hand and Upper Extremity/Microvascular Care, for treatment of hand and elbow injuries, deformities, arthritis, nerve compression (carpal and cubital tunnel syndrome), and masses (such as ganglions and tumors)

Our orthopaedic surgeons are experienced in the use of minimally invasive surgical procedures for treating the wrist, elbow, shoulder, hip, knee, and spine, which minimize postoperative pain, blood loss, and recovery time. We routinely employ regional anesthesia to minimize anesthesia use during surgery and to control pain after surgery.

The Allen Hospital also features the multidisciplinary Hip Fracture Service, where patients with hip fractures receive care from:

  • Orthopaedic trauma surgeons who choose the optimal surgical treatment, monitor incisions, and determine the best course of rehabilitation after surgery for each patient
  • Medical doctors who ensure the optimal health of patients before surgery and monitor them after surgery
  • Physical therapists who teach patients to walk again
  • Social workers and case managers who help patients obtain safe and appropriate placement in a subacute rehabilitation facility or receive services at home

About Our Physicians

All physicians at The Allen Hospital are also on the staff of New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center, one of the country's major academic medical centers. In addition, each of our physicians is a member of the highly regarded ColumbiaDoctors faculty practice. This means that patients experience the level of exceptional care expected from NewYork-Presbyterian in a personal and accessible environment.
