It provides a full range of orthopaedic surgical and non-surgical services to relieve pain and restore physical function. These include highly-specialized and advanced methods of joint replacement surgery, corrective spinal surgery, and the repair of athletic injuries. Every year, doctors at the Institute perform more hip and knee replacement procedures using minimally-invasive techniques at White Plains Hospital than at any other hospital in Westchester County.

  • Orthopaedic surgeons trained at nationally-renown academic medical centers, offering comprehensive care in all areas of orthopaedic surgery
  • Nursing staff specially certified in orthopaedic care
  • Physical therapists, nutritionists and other specialists to treat each patient individually
