Welcome to Columbia Orthopedics, where we have a history of excellence. Founded on the pioneering work of Drs. Harrison McLaughlin, Russell Hibbs, Frank Stinchfield, Robert Carroll, Charles Neer, and Louis Bigliani, the department exemplifies the very best in orthopedic education and surgery. Under our current Chairman, Dr. William Levine, a world-renowned shoulder surgeon, the historic legacy of the department continues to thrive.

At NYOH, residents enjoy a robust operative and clinical experience with a variety of outstanding faculty members who represent every orthopedic sub-specialty. Our residents take advantage of dedicated research time to cultivate collaboration with our impressive research faculty. A culture of education and excellence permeates the entire department, and we believe firmly that the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at Columbia University Irving Medical Center offers one of the strongest and richest orthopedic surgery training programs in the country.

The NYOH Family

It's a family here. When I was applying to residencies, I asked every program, "when was the last time resident feedback led to a lasting change in the program?" and most program directors responded to me with blank stares. At Columbia, the answers were fantastic, and gave me a sense of how much everyone here cares about you as a person and is invested in your success. Being a part of Columbia Orthopaedics has jump-started my career in every way imaginable...helping me to match at my number one choice for fellowship, connecting me with lifelong mentors, and setting me up with leadership opportunities in the orthopedic community. I could not imagine being anywhere else for residency!
