Same-day surgery means you are able to recover in the place you feel most relaxed: your own home.
At the NYU Langone Outpatient Surgery Center, we specialize in same-day surgery for orthopaedic conditions including anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and meniscus injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, Dupuytren’s contracture, de Quervain’s tenosynovitis, rotator cuff injury, shoulder instability, and fractures of the wrist, elbow, ankle, and finger.
We perform knee replacement surgery, tendon repair, and arthroscopy, a diagnostic procedure that uses a camera to view the inside of a joint.
Our facility houses 4 operating rooms and a 12-bed postsurgical recovery unit. We are committed to providing the highest quality care to our patients in a comfortable environment.
Our orthopaedic surgeons are affiliated with NYU Langone’s Hospital for Joint Diseases. They are part of a team that includes anesthesiologists, nurses, and clinical and administrative directors, all committed to providing you with the care you want and deserve.
To ensure that your surgery is seamless from beginning to end, we work directly with your physician’s office to schedule your surgery and any necessary preoperative tests. When you arrive for your procedure, you are shown to a private dressing room and waiting area designed to allow you and your family to talk confidentially with your medical team prior to surgery.
The Outpatient Surgery Center is part of NYU Langone’s Center for Musculoskeletal Care, which offers personalized sports medicine and outpatient care for conditions related to the joints. In addition, you can receive treatment for arthritis and other autoimmune conditions. Imaging services, infusion services, rehabilitation, and pain management are also available.
