Why have my surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital?

“Lenox Hill Hospital is a full-service community hospital with a Center of Excellence in Orthopaedic Surgery and Sports Medicine. Lenox Hill offers the full array of medical and surgical services - meaning that we are prepared to handle whatever needs you may have.”


Lenox Hill Hospital is a full-service community hospital with a Center of Excellence in Orthopaedic Surgery and Sports Medicine. The hospital has "laminar flow" operating rooms to reduce the risk of infection after joint replacement, and a dedicated orthopaedic floor with experienced nurses and physical therapists. Unlike specialty hospitals, Lenox Hill offers the full array of medical and surgical services - meaning that we are prepared to handle whatever needs you may have.

Our tradition of orthopaedic excellence was firmly established by Dr. James Nicholas, the pioneer of sports medicine best known for saving Joe Namath's knees. Dr. Chitranjan Ranawat, a designer of the first widely successful total knee replacement, established Lenox Hill as an internationally renowned center for total joint replacement surgery. The chairman of orthopaedics, Dr. Elliott Hershman, is team physician for the New York Jets and a specialist in knee arthroscopy. The department continues to innovate and grow under his guidance, enabling Lenox Hill to remain a premier hospital for orthopaedic surgery.
