Orthopedics, Sports Injury and Joint Replacement

Peconic Bay Medical Center's staff of orthopedic specialists includes specialists in joint replacement, spine surgery, hand surgery, sports medicine and general orthopedics. While covering the full range of orthopedic conditions, Peconic Bay Medical Center has particularly become known as Long Island's leading destination hospital for advanced joint replacement procedures.

During surgery, the damaged or arthritic joint is replaced with an artificial implant, which is specifically designed to replicate the natural motion of the original joint. In conjunction with rehabilitation and exercise, joint replacement restores functional independence and allows a person to lead a more full and active life.

Our multidisciplinary team of rehabilitation specialists—board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons, and specially trained professional nurses, anesthesiologists, orthopedic physician assistants, physical and occupational therapists, dietitians and support staff—focus on a customized treatment plan that promotes healing and improves overall strength and mobility.

Peconic Bay Medical Center is committed to helping orthopedic patients regain functional independence and improve their quality of life. Using the most advanced technology and surgical techniques available, the goal is to get patients back on their feet as quickly and, just as importantly, as safely as possible.

Peconic Bay offers a comprehensive range of services from education to rehabilitation necessary for maximizing the patient's full recovery. A key component of the program is patient and family education. Informed patients recover faster and their hospital stay is minimized. Armed with knowledge and training, patients feel safer and more confident when they are released from the hospital to return home and resume their activities.

The continuum of services available once the patient is ready to leave the hospital includes the Peconic Bay Medical Center Sub-Acute Care Facility for short-term rehabilitation, Peconic Bay Home Health Services for continued medical treatment at home, and Peconic Bay's Outpatient Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation Center, with state-of-the-art equipment and an experienced staff of physical therapists.
