Hip and Knee Replacements
For patients struggling with a painful joint condition—from arthritis to hip fractures—the skilled orthopedists at Mount Sinai Queens provide advanced treatments to eliminate discomfort and restore ease of movement. The therapies we provide range from non-surgical treatments to complex reconstructive surgeries using advanced minimally invasive techniques. Our team of doctors, nurses, and therapists combines clinical expertise and cutting-edge technologies in order to minimize pain, shorten recovery times, and achieve the best possible long-term outcomes.
Personalized Hip and Knee Care
We are committed to providing the best possible patient experience. Our skilled physicians evaluate each case and determine the best course of action to provide personalized treatment for each individual case. Patients are often treated with medication, injections, or rehabilitation medicine, including physical therapy. When surgery is necessary, it is often performed using minimally invasive techniques, which leads to faster recovery time, less pain, and less likelihood of complications. Our skilled surgical teams perform several hip and knee replacement surgeries daily.
Research shows that full recovery is dependent on successful rehabilitation, so immediately following any orthopedic surgery, patients begin physical rehabilitation.
The Mount Sinai Queens team, including surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, and physical therapists, holds special patient education classes to address your questions and concerns so that you’ll know what to expect before, during, and after surgery. All pre-surgery testing is done on the premises in one convenient, centralized location.
Typically, patients are admitted to Mount Sinai Queens for up to three days. Our staff works with patients to transition them from the hospital to their homes or, when necessary, to refer them to a convenient sub-acute facility.
Multidisciplinary Approach to Joint Care
Successful hip or knee reconstruction requires coordinated care among specialists. Our surgeons work collaboratively with other disciplines throughout the hospital, including cardiology, geriatrics, hematology, nephrology, physiatry, pulmonology, and rheumatology. After surgery, our pain management team uses a variety of treatments to make patients as comfortable as possible.
