doctor talking to a patient


For 150 years, ColumbiaDoctors Orthopedics has been a center for excellence in patient care and a pioneer in the development of new and better treatments for musculoskeletal injuries and disorders. Our physicians performed the first spinal fusion, completed the first shoulder replacement to restore full range of motion, were among the first in the nation to perform total hip and knee replacements, and have made many other revolutionary advances going back to our founding as the New York Orthopaedic Hospital in 1866.

From the commonplace to the complex, our renowned orthopedic team specializes in non-operative management, minimally invasive surgery, arthroscopy, sports medicine, total joint repair and reconstruction, and comprehensive spine care. We practice personalized medicine — tailoring the treatment to the individual — and handle a wide range of complex conditions affecting both children and adults through a collaborative team approach.

Patients come from across the country, and throughout the world, to receive the highest quality orthopedic care and the latest, most innovative, treatments backed by academic research. Our physicians are all affiliated with NewYork-Presbyterian, routinely ranked one of the best hospitals in the nation, giving patients access to top physicians in every discipline.

Our goal is to get you back on the playing field of life quickly and safely, providing expert care with a personalized approach. We also have a staff of physical therapists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, athletic trainers, and nurses to assist in your care. With our comprehensive approach to treatment, our team ensures that a patient regains as much range of motion and function as possible.
