The care you need to get back to enjoying life—all in one location
At the Department of Orthopedics at Huntington Hospital, everything we do is designed to eliminate your pain and help you and your family return to the active, fulfilling lifestyles you enjoy—all within one convenient location in Huntington.  

It doesn't take much to cause a sprain, injure a joint, pull a tendon, pinch a nerve or even break a bone—all things that can slow you down and prevent you from performing at your best. That's why the Huntington Hospital Department of Orthopedics offers expert care to help you get back to living a pain-free life.

As a part of the extensive network of world-class orthopedic resources available through the Northwell Health Orthopaedic Institute, our department is composed of board-certified orthopedic surgeons and interdisciplinary caregivers with years of expertise in their fields. Our network of physicians specialize in the diagnosis and surgical and nonsurgical treatment of musculoskeletal conditions and offer general orthopedic care and surgery, as well as a full range of subspecialty treatments—from trauma and total joint replacement to sports medicine, hand surgery and spinal surgery. 

Our mission is to provide the highest quality patient-centered orthopedic care. Everything we do as orthopedic specialists is designed to eliminate your chronic pain and disabilities and help you regain mobility and return to active, fulfilling lifestyles as quickly as possible.
