The Orthopaedic Center at Mount Sinai West will be the Health System’s location for all orthopedic patient appointments on the West Side. The new facility offers a larger space to accommodate more patients and physicians specializing in all areas of orthopedics. Four new surgeons have joined the center’s 12 existing physicians to expand care and services in the areas of total joint replacement, sports medicine, spine, foot and ankle, shoulder, elbow and hand injuries. This facility gives patients new and direct on-site access to radiologists, rheumatologists, and pain management physicians for  coordinated care.

“We are extremely excited about the opening of our new facility, which will provide patients throughout the city and especially on the west side of Manhattan with state-of-the-art care, and give them access to orthopedic physicians in all sub-specialties,” said Dr. Bronson. “The Center will also provide immediate access to patients with acute orthopedic problems so these can be addressed in a timely manner. A larger facility means patients won’t have to wait weeks or months to see a world-renowned specialist.”

Additionally, the Orthopaedic Center at Mount Sinai West will serve as a major teaching site for medical students, residents, and fellows in all areas of orthopedics. This will add an extra level of expertise on the West Side, leading to increased medical research and breakthroughs in treatments to advance patient care.
