We offer a range of orthopedic services including:
Our orthopedic surgeons are adept at performing arthroscopic surgery, a minimally invasive joint surgery approach used to examine, diagnose and surgically correct a number of disorders, from arthritis to ligament tears, in the knee, hip, shoulder, ankle, wrist and elbow. Unlike conventional “open” surgery that typically requires large incisions, arthroscopic surgery involves smaller incisions and is associated with a quicker recovery, less pain and fewer complications. Many arthroscopic procedures can be done under local or regional anesthesia on an outpatient basis.
Arthroscopic surgery is provided at the hospital’s Minimally Invasive Surgery Center. For more information, click here.
At the hospital’s Joint Replacement Surgery Program, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons have special expertise in joint replacement and reconstruction using the latest advances in joint replacement technology, pain management and surgical approaches that make recovery easier than ever. Our services include:
- Total knee replacement
- Partial knee replacement
- Total hip replacement
- Hip resurfacing
- Shoulder replacement
- Complex revisions
Sports Injury Care
There’s nothing worse than being sidelined by a sports injury or pain resulting from overuse or repetitive motion. From elite athletes to weekend warriors, we provide a comprehensive range of sports injury diagnostic and treatment services including advanced musculoskeletal imaging, minimally invasive surgery and physical rehabilitation in one convenient location at our hospital.
Arthritis is the progressive loss of the protective cartilage layer that insulates the joint surfaces. As arthritis progresses, its painful effects on the joints include swelling, stiffness, and deformity, which can affect a person’s mobility, activity level and quality of life.
At NewYork-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital we care for patients with osteoarthritis (OA), the “wear and tear” type of arthritis that typically starts to manifest after age 60, as well as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), an autoimmune disorder in which joint cartilage is misidentified as foreign and the body’s immune system attacks it.
Treatments for arthritis include anti-inflammatory medications, physical therapy and cortisone injections. If these non-surgical treatments fail to minimize pain and suffering, a patient might be referred for surgery and possible joint replacement.

Whether you are recovering from an orthopedic injury or just had orthopedic surgery, we are dedicated to helping you regain optimal function and return to your daily activities.
After your orthopedic surgery, our team of experienced physical therapists works closely with our orthopedic surgeons to provide you with a seamless transition from surgery to rehabilitation. Our therapists can also teach you about injury prevention to help you stay in the game.
