Who We Treat

Columbia orthopedics and sports medicine specialists care for people with:

  • Injuries and disorders affecting the knees, shoulders, hips, hands, wrists, feet, ankles, arms and legs, and spine
  • Arthritis and chronic joint pain, including severe arthritis often best treated with a knee, hip, shoulder, elbow, or ankle replacement
  • Neck and back pain
  • Sports injuries and musculoskeletal trauma of all types

Minimally Invasive Surgery

If you need surgery, the Columbia orthopedic surgeons at NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital use minimally invasive surgical approaches whenever possible to repair your injury —including advanced arthroscopic techniques, operating through small incisions and often on an outpatient basis. If you need an open surgical procedure for a more complex surgical repair or reconstruction, you’ll have access to specialists who are experts in performing those procedures as well.
