Message from the Chair
Welcome to Mount Sinai’s state-of-the-art Joint Replacement Center. The Joint Replacement Center treats patients with a variety of knee and hip conditions. Whether you require surgical or non-surgical treatment, our team is knowledgeable about the latest and best modalities to improve your function and mobility.
Housed on one floor, the 5,000-square-foot Joint Replacement Center provides clinical consultation and evaluation, radiological analysis, and patient-specific treatment planning.
The center also features the progressive Samuel and Ethel LeFrak Center for Patient Education which is distinct among New York hospitals. Supported by Richard and Karen LeFrak in honor of their parents, the multimedia center has HDTV monitors for video presentations on joint replacement and other surgical and postsurgical information. Computer banks are queued with dynamic and visually striking programs on knee and hip education, safety, and rehabilitation.
While surgery is not always required, when it is needed, our physicians are skilled in the most current hip and knee surgical technologies. Our physicians are experienced, board-certified, fellowship-trained surgeons highly capable of handling the most complex hip and knee replacements. It’s not surprising that Mount Sinai is one of only two New York City hospitals—and just 14 across the country— selected by the National Football League (NFL) and the NFL Players Association to assist eligible retired players in need of joint replacement surgery.
Surgeons at the Mount Sinai Joint Replacement Center are integral members of the Leni and Peter W. May Department of Orthopaedic Surgery. As such, they collaborate closely with department subspecialists in spine, sports medicine, shoulder/elbow, foot and ankle, oncology, hand/microvascular, and pediatrics to ensure that their patients receive the highest quality orthopaedic care.
The surgeons who will be taking care of you are innovators and educators. Their goal is to improve patient care in every respect. They are constantly striving to improve pain management after surgery, advance strategies to keep infection rates extremely low, and enhance implant design.
We look forward to hearing from you and working with you soon.
With kind regards,
Leesa Galatz, MD
