International & Out-of-Town Patients

NY Bone and Joint Specialists has the privilege of serving patients attracted to our quality orthopedic care from around the globe. We understand the stress involved in preparing for surgery close to home, and realize that it is even more difficult for those traveling to the United States for their care.

Our international relations staff – consisting of orthopedic surgeons, rehabilitation doctors, administration, liaisons, and interpreters – are able to provide the most comfortable accommodations and services for patients and their loved ones.

Dr. Popovitz’ skill and reputation has drawn attention from all over the world. As a result, we have a modern and comfortable system in place to expedite your care with the highest level of attention.


If you have been recommended orthopedic surgery for your Shoulder, Hip, Knee, Ankle or Foot then contact us now for a free MRI review. Our expert specialists will determine if you are a candidate for minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery or require one of our other procedures. 
We also provide free MRI review for the neck and spine if you are pursuing non surgical options.
A New York Bone & Joint consultant will call you soon after you contact us to arrange for us to receive the MRI. The MRI will be reviewed within 2 days and then a consultant will contact you with the determination. You will then be provided with top service in making arrangements for your visit with the doctor and stay in New York. 


Our orthopedic center staff is dedicated to helping our international patients with every aspect of their trip, including assistance with planning for accommodations and transportation needs. Our understanding staff is eager to make arrangements for any religious or cultural needs and can provide interpreter services if requested.

We are happy to make recommendations for your stay in New York, one of the most scenic and exciting places in the United States, to experience with your loved ones. Our offices and affiliated hospitals are located in the heart of Manhattan; the best spot for famous dining, shopping, sightseeing, and events.

Some of the closest hotels include:

  • Hotel Plaza Athenee – New York, NY
  • The Carlyle (A Rosewood Hotel) – New York, NY
  • Affinia Gardens Hotel – New York, NY

It is optimal for patients to arrive 1 or 2 days before their procedure for an evaluation appointment, as well as to meet and discuss the upcoming process with your doctor of orthopedics. Our staff will communicate with any at-home doctors for MRIs, X-Rays, or other imaging that would make an evaluation as easy as possible. We can also help you in arranging for in-house nurse services during your recovery period in New York.



Your physician and our international administration are devoted to making you feel confident in your procedure and ensure the best possible recovery. Your orthopedic doctor will be available to call for any questions or concerns you may have before and after your surgery. Interpreters and staff will make sure you and your loved ones feel comfortable and stay informed of every part of the surgical and rehabilitation process. 

We will take care of any immediate prescriptions or therapeutic care needed post-operatively. We can schedule a regimen at the All Sports Physical Therapy clinics in each of our offices to help your recovery, depending on how long your stay in New York will be. Your physician will also provide you with the best possible medical advice to follow once you are home, and will still be available to contact with any concerns even after your stay.


At NY Bone and Joint Specialists, we understand that many international patients come to our surgeons, not only for their renowned skills, but to receive the care they need as quickly as possible. All arrangements can be made by our staff in a very short time.

Our international patients are of utmost priority, so you can be sure your evaluation, surgery, and follow up appointments will be scheduled as soon as you arrive. Our staff is also experienced in dealing with billing and insurance processes, allowing you and your loved ones to concentrate on your health, while we take care of the rest.
