Center for Hip & Knee Replacement

The Center for Hip & Knee Replacement has earned a reputation for delivering advanced treatments to relieve hip and knee pain and, as a result, is a major referral center for patients from this country and abroad. In addition to providing state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment approaches for hip and knee disorders, its physician-scientists remain on the cutting-edge of translational and clinical research.

Our hospital has been at the forefront of hip and knee replacement since these surgeries were introduced in the United States during the 1960s. In fact, the first total knee replacement in the United States was performed here in the early 1970s.

Due to these pioneering efforts in hip and knee surgery, the Anne Youle Stein Foundation helped to officially start hip and knee research in at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center with the establishment in 1997 of the Nas S. Eftekhar, M.D. Documentation Center for Clinical Orthopaedic Research, named for the orthopaedic surgeon who performed that first total knee replacement surgery. Then in 2001, the Center for Hip & Knee Replacement was founded, and today under the direction of William Macaulay, MD, Nas S. Eftekhar Professor of Clinical Orthopaedic Surgery, carries on the tradition of prospective outcomes data collection and is regarded as a leading center for basic and clinical research in hip and knee replacement.
