Brooklyn, Get Moving!

Excellent Orthopaedic Care Where You Need It Most

We received the highest grade “A” for patient safety from the prestigious Leapfrog Group. TBHC is one of only two hospitals in all of New York City to get an “A” and is the only A-rated hospital in Brooklyn. In fact, only about 8% of hospitals in the entire State of New York received this highest grade. Patient Safety plus excellent orthopaedic care means moving pain free.

The Division of Orthopaedic Surgery & Sports Medicine offers comprehensive orthopaedic care of the utmost quality in Downtown Brooklyn. TBHC's orthopaedic surgeons combine surgical expertise with pioneering clinical and basic research in areas such as bone stimulation, tissue repair and total joint reconstruction. Our orthopaedic surgeons have advanced fellowship training in sports medicine and work closely with primary care sports medicine physicians in the Department of Family Medicine. The staff also has extensive training and experience in the management of arthritis and broken bones/fractures. Our comprehensive, interdisciplinary approach furthers our mission of Keeping Brooklyn Healthy.
