For Physicians

At the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery we are continually searching for ways to strengthen our partnership with the referring physicians in our communities. If you are a referring physician we hope that you are able to use this website to access the referral information you need for your patients.

To speak to our Admitting Department at the Hospital for Joint Diseases (17th Street) call 212-598-6750 and at NYU Langone Medical Center (34th Street) call (212) 263-7300.
