The Department of Orthopedic Surgery at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons Columbia is home to one of the country’s oldest and most prestigious orthopedic training programs. Our rich tradition in orthopedic surgery dates back to 1866 when the New York Orthopedic Dispensary—later named the New York Orthopaedics Hospital—opened its doors.
Throughout our history, Columbia has played an important role in developing and refining new techniques in the diagnosis and treatment of orthopedic diseases and disorders.
Columbia Orthopedics continues to train tomorrow’s world-renowned medical experts today. Our Residents and Fellows learn from the top surgeons in their chosen fields while using the latest technology to engage in research and deliver unparalleled patient care.
