Hospital for Joint Diseases and New York Spine Institute Join Together to Open State-of-the-Art Orthopaedic Facility in Westbury

New Office to Offer Full Range of Orthopaedic Care by HJD Physicians and Surgeons

The Hospital for Joint Diseases at NYU Langone Medical Center today announced that it will open a state-of-the-art facility in Westbury, New York, with The New York Spine Institute. The new 13,000 square-foot facility will be staffed by physicians and surgeons from the Hospital for Joint Diseases (HJD). Patients will have access to all of the resources available at the Hospital for Joint Diseases in New York City.

"This new office will provide residents of Westbury and surrounding communities with outstanding orthopaedic care from our world-class doctors and surgeons at the Hospital for Joint Diseases," said Joseph D. Zuckerman, MD, chairman of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery of NYU Langone Medical Center and surgeon-in-chief at the Hospital for Joint Diseases. "We are excited about the opportunity to join with the New York Spine Institute at this brand new state-of-the-art facility."

The New York Spine Institute will now offer the full range of orthopaedic services including sports medicine, knee and hip replacement, pediatric orthopaedics, and the treatment of scoliosis and spinal deformities. Medical care for injuries of the hand, shoulder and elbow, spine, foot and ankle will also be available. Additional services will include pain management, physical therapy, acupuncture, and chiropractic care. The facility provides comprehensive imaging including high field MRI and digital X-ray. Previously, The New York Spine Institute previously focused solely on the diseases and injuries of the spine.
