Hospital for Joint Diseases

Chief: Steven Stuchin, MD

The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery is responsible for providing the full range of adult orthopaedic services to patients at the Hospital for Joint Diseases at NYU Langone Medical Center.

This specialty hospital is dedicated solely to the treatment of orthopaedic and rheumatologic conditions. Members of the Hospital for Joint Diseases service follow the highest professional standards in evaluating and treating in-hospital patients, patients who seek treatment in the numerous clinics, and patients who visit the Hospital's Immediate Care Center, a unique facility that provides urgent orthopaedic care.

More than 11,000 surgical procedures are performed at the Hospital for Joint Diseases annually, including over 2,000 joint replacement procedures. The large number of cases performed makes the Hospital a fertile area for education and research.

For the convenience of patients, the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery maintains faculty practice offices at both the 17th street facility and across the street at Rutherford Place, 305 Second Avenue. The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery runs adult and pediatric clinics at the Hospital for Joint Diseases throughout the week. To schedule a clinic appointment, please call (212) 598-6321.
