Joint Replacement Center
The starting point for addressing degenerative conditions of the hip or knee is the Joint Replacement Center at NYU Langone’s Center for Musculoskeletal Care. Doctors specializing in adult orthopaedics evaluate conditions caused by arthritis, injuries, congenital problems, and general wear and tear to determine the best course of treatment. We also offer access to our highly skilled orthopaedic surgeons.

Minimally Invasive Joint Replacement
Minimally invasive orthopaedic surgery refers to a set of techniques that surgeons use to reduce the impact on muscles, bones, and skin during the procedure. These include minimal incision, muscle sparing, and minimal bone removal techniques.
Our total joint replacement surgeons are extremely experienced in these techniques and work with the latest technology and equipment in our specialized orthopaedic operating rooms. They use their expert judgment in planning the surgery and during the procedure to meet the primary goal: addressing a patient’s joint problem and giving them the best possible outcome.
