The Mount Sinai Joint Replacement Center is dedicated to the research and development of new methods to diagnose and treat a variety of hip and knee ailments. We are involved in a large number of clinical research studies related to joint replacement surgery.
- Pain management after joint replacement

One of our most exciting ongoing projects focuses on minimizing pain after total joint replacement. Using a variety of intra-operative injections and regional anesthesia, our surgeons can perform even the most complex surgeries without general anesthesia.
Your doctor may encourage you to enroll in one of our research projects. It is only by working together that we can make improvements in the field of joint replacement surgery for generations to come.
