Center for Joint Preservation and Reconstruction

The Center for Joint Preservation and Reconstruction is Lenox Hill Hospital's center of excellence for treatment of arthritis and other painful joint problems, caring for thousands of patients every year with the most advanced nonsurgical and surgical techniques. Our surgeons have expertise in joint preserving surgeries such as arthroscopy and osteotomy, as well as joint replacement of the hip and knee. Modern, less-invasive techniques allow rapid recovery and lasting results. The team's expertise also makes this a referral center for management of complex reconstructive problems.

The Center for Joint Preservation and Reconstruction is part of the Lenox Hill Hospital Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, and includes members of the divisions of Adult Reconstructive Surgery and Sports Medicine. Located on the upper east side of Manhattan, Lenox Hill is nationally recognized for excellence in the surgical care of arthritis and other joint problems. It is New York City's number one full service hospital for joint replacement surgery.
