Nov. 8, 2017:   NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital Orthopedics is undergoing an important transformation, ushered in by nationally renowned sports medicine and orthopedic physicians from Columbia University Medical Center. 

Doctors will be seeing patients in Bronxville and Tarrytown, with surgical procedures performed at NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital.

The collaboration with Columbia will result in a significant expansion of services offered, including the addition of fellowship-trained experts in the following orthopedic specialties: hip & knee reconstruction, sports medicine, foot and ankle, hand, elbow, shoulder, spine, and trauma. These services are complemented by the hospital’s Joint Replacement Program and extensive outpatient physical therapy services.

“We are delighted to bring these new specialized services to NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital and provide access to world-class Columbia physicians,” said Michael J. Fosina, president of NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital. “Our patients will have access to a wider array of orthopedic services using the most advanced surgical and non-operative techniques.”

“Columbia Orthopedics is thrilled to expand our services to patients in Westchester County and local communities throughout the region,” said Dr. William Levine, orthopedic surgeon-in-chief of NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center and Frank E. Stinchfield, professor and chair of the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at Columbia University Medical Center. “Through our collaboration with NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital, patients will benefit from an academic medical practice that leverages the latest research and technology to deliver advanced orthopedic specialty care close to where they want and need it most – home.”

The Joint Commission awarded NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital’s Joint Replacement Program its Gold Seal of Approval again in 2016, which demonstrates the hospital’s continuous compliance with national standards for health care quality and safety in disease-specific care. The certification award recognizes the hospital’s dedication to these state-of-the-art standards.
