Glen Cove Hospital's Center for Joint Replacements is an exemplary program that performs over 1,100 total joint replacements annually. The Center boasts one of the lowest infection rates, which is significantly below the national average, so patients can feel comfortable knowing that they will be receiving the best care possible from our physicians. Additional achievements include: performing the first total ankle replacement at Glen Cove Hospital, hosting ongoing community outreach educational programs, participating in the HIP booth at Citi Field, and conducting humanitarian work in Equatorial Guinea.
The Center for Joint Replacements and its physicians are focused on the highest level of patient care; through the co-management model, surgical patients are assigned to a hospitalist following their procedure. Our team is committed to constant improvement of their techniques and the future of orthopedic surgery through coordinated research endeavors, monthly journal club and staff education, weekly patient education classes, as well as teaching appointments at the Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine.
