NYC has 2 of the top 10 orthopedic hospitals in the US:

Hospital for Special Surgery

NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases

They are #2 and 6 respectively and you can't go wrong at both institutions.



Most of the surgeons are superb at both facilities and here are some:

Joint Diseases: Roy Davidovitch does anterior hip replacement with Hana table, so does Patrick Meere and JUstin LaMOnt, Jaffe and Slover

Special Surgery: Padgett, Su, Alexiades and Weistrich are all top notch also



These 2 orthopedic specialty hospitals do the most joint replacement procedures in the state.



Good luck!

Expertise

I can answer questions on physical therapy after hip replacements; The problem of depression after this surgery; How to find a good surgeon; What questions to ask when interviewing a surgeon; What to expect after surgery; How hip surgery affects a younger person; What you can expect insofar as healing; Pregnancy issues, and all general questions on recuperation.

Experience

I had my first set of bi-lateral hips put in at the age of 16. I am now 50. I have had to have my legs virtually reconstructed each time I have had the surgery. I know first hand how this surgery can affect all facets of homelife, career, child bearing, and physical appearance.
