Joint Replacement

The Joint Replacement Center at Montefiore Nyack Hospital is a recipient of The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for its hip and knee joint replacement programs. It was the first to achieve this distinction in the lower Hudson Valley.

The Joint Replacement Center offers a unique and highly specialized facility dedicated to the surgical replacement and repair of hip and knee joints, as well as post-surgery rehabilitation. Our medical team includes physicians, physicians’ assistants, nurses, patient care associates, surgical technologists, physical therapists, and case managers, all specializing in joint care. Our board-certified orthopedic surgeons perform hundreds of knee and hip replacements each year, using techniques designed to minimize complications and enhance the performance of implanted joints. Most patients return to active, pain-free lifestyles faster than they ever thought possible.

If pain is interfering with your daily routine and enjoyment of your life, and non-surgical treatments are not effective, talk to a Montefiore Nyack Hospital orthopedic surgeon to see if joint replacement surgery is right for you. 

The Joint Replacement Center’s 10th Anniversary Celebration
On Friday, June 3, 2016 more than 200 joint replacement patients and their guests joined Montefiore Nyack Hospital employees and physicians for a special 10th Anniversary Celebration in commemoration of the opening of The Joint Replacement Center at Montefiore Nyack Hospital in 2006. The event was held at the Palisades Credit Union Park, home of the Rockland Boulders, in Pomona, NY, where attendees were treated to a baseball game against the Quebec Capitales. Montefiore Nyack Hospital President & CEO, Dr. Mark Geller, threw out the first pitch to the cheers of fans from Montefiore Nyack Hospital all donning bright green t-shirts commemorating The Center's anniversary.
