Thank you for choosing New York Bone and Joint Specialists, where we offer a full spectrum of options for orthopedic care and rehabilitation. Here you will find the paperwork that should be filled out prior to your first appointment at our office, as well as other forms and pre-/post-op instructions.
Your visit will start with a personal interview and physical examination. This may be followed by diagnostic tests such as X-rays and/or an MRI. Your orthopedic surgeon will discuss your diagnosis and available treatment options with you and help you select the best plan to help you to live an active and functional life.
The introduction of minimally invasive technique such as arthroscopic surgery, has meant that many patients can be treated through tiny incisions, minimizing the trauma of “open” surgery and allowing them to enjoy a faster recovery and return to regular activities.
Our list of insurances (participating & assignment of benefits) can be found here.
