Division of Adult Reconstructive Surgery

The Division of Adult Reconstructive Surgery at Lenox Hill has a rich history of excellence, having achieved international renown under the leadership of Dr. Chitranjan Ranawat. The Total Joint Replacement Fellowship at Lenox Hill attracts surgeons from around the world to learn advanced surgical techniques.

Dr. Jose Rodriguez, Chief of Adult Reconstructive Surgery, has continued Lenox Hill's tradition of innovation and excellence, employing and critically evaluating new technologies and surgical techniques that offer the potential for improved recovery and better long-term outcomes after joint replacement surgery. He recently established the Center for Joint Preservation and Reconstruction at Lenox Hill, promoting the use of joint preserving surgery in cases where joint replacement is not yet necessary.

Lenox Hill surgeons offer the latest technologies to optimize patient outcomes after surgery, including Multimodal Pain Control Regimens, Direct Anterior Approach Total Hip Replacement, Patient-Specific Instrumentation for Total Knee Replacement, Partial Knee Replacement, and Arthroscopic Hip Surgery. Moreover, Lenox Hill surgeons have expertise in complex reconstructive surgeries including revision joint replacement and repair of bone fractures around prosthetic implants.
