St. John’s Riverside Hospital created this comprehensive, multi-million dollar Westchester Orthopedic Center conveniently located close to home to serve its community. The center’s unique approach to orthopedic care is based on providing patient education, utilizing the latest in orthopedic technology and providing follow-up care that minimizes orthopedic recurrences or surgical complications. The center features comfortable private rooms in a boutique-like setting, and the best part is most patients go home in only a few days or less.
The Westchester Orthopedic Center has been designed based on research methodology that uniquely positions it to deliver better patient outcomes.
The approach includes the education of each patient, and the identification and education of a “coach” for each patient prior to surgery. A clear step-by-step plan is followed for each patient through the surgical process that is unique, expeditious, and aids the patient in healing faster. Additionally, the orthopedic surgical and recovery teams also follow a step-by-step process which allows the patient to feel more comfortable and have any questions answered promptly before, during or after surgery.
Collectively, the above process with access to leading edge orthopedic robotics and a team of seasoned, high-rated orthopedic doctors and nurses allows for better outcomes and an overall more successful and pleasant surgical experience that will exercise every measure to elongate the life of your surgery.
With this level of research based design, Westchester Orthopedic Center is your top choice for orthopedic care.
A personal plan is designed for each knee patient that includes preadmission classes and education materials that will aid in a quick recovery. The Westchester Orthopedic Center offers robotic technology enabling surgeons to precisely place the replacement joints in the exact position needed with GPS technology. Patients are likely to have fewer problems over time due to the exact positioning. Partial knee replacements require only the damaged part of the knee to be removed resulting in patients having pain free knees in just a few days and ultimately a more natural movement feeling.
Pain Free in Days
The center offers high-quality, robotic, full and partial knee replacements as well as traditional methods. With the precision of robotics and the benefit of only eliminating the damaged portion of the knee a patient is up and walking the day after surgery. Since the robotic surgery is less invasive, patients are also mobile sooner, recovering faster and having better long term results. This procedure overall diminishes the expected pain to just a few days.

At the Westchester Orthopedic Center a seasoned team of high-rated orthopedic doctors develop a personal plan is designed for each hip patient that includes preadmission classes and education materials that will aid a quick recovery. The center offers anterior, robotic and traditional approach hip replacements.
Anterior Hip Replacements
Part of the patient’s personal plan that is designed may recommend an Anterior Hip Replacement. The anterior approach moves the hip muscles left or right to access the hip joint without cutting through muscle. The benefit of not needing to cut muscle during the anterior procedure allows patients to recover faster and have better long term results.
Robotic Hip Replacements
The Westchester Orthopedic Center offers robotic technology enabling surgeons to precisely place the replacement joints in the exact position needed with GPS® technology. Patients are likely to have fewer problems over time due to the exact positioning. Since the robotic replacements require only small incisions rather than the traditional open surgery that can require up to a 10” incision, this is a less invasive surgery.
Pain Free in Days
Since the center offers both anterior and robotic less invasive hip replacement options, patients will benefit from being able to recovery faster with the ability to move quicker. Patients are also benefitting from better long term results due to the exact GPS positioning of the robotic hip replacement. These procedures overall diminish the recovery pain to just a few days.
St. John’s Riverside Hospital is now the only hospital in Westchester where a patient can experience the complete MAKOplasty® Robotic Technology Hip & Knee partial and total replacement offering.
MAKOplasty partial knee resurfacing is a minimally invasive procedure for those suffering with painful early to mid-stage osteoarthritis of the knee.

MAKOplasty® benefits the patient and the surgeon. MAKOplasty® is a minimally invasive partial knee replacement procedure which uses a computerized navigation system. The system features RIO® Robotic Arm Interactive System: an interactive robotic arm and visualization technology that allows the surgeon to create a surgical plan. Using an initial CT scan, the technology creates a 3-dimensional virtual view of the bone surface. This virtual view guides the surgeon in how much bone to shave off, and the exact boundaries of that specific, damaged area. It also allows the surgeon to precisely align the implants. This technology will be used to help those who have osteoarthritis of the knee.
