  • Orthopedic surgery, including minimally invasive procedures
  • Emergency care

Making History through Teamwork

Across the street, the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center has been making history for over 150 years, and the Rehabilitation Medicine Department has been a leader in injury prevention and treatment since the early 20th century. Today, Armory athletes can benefit from a unique collaboration between these two historic New York City institutions.
