Upstate University Hospital at the Community Campus has long been a leading provider of orthopedic services in the Syracuse area. Our reputation comes from our talented and experienced team of nurses and physicians who provide a wide range of orthopedic services.

The Orthopedic unit is on the 6th floor of our hospital. It is home to 44 recently remodeled private and semi-private rooms and a private rehabilitation gym that overlooks the City of Syracuse. Not only does the unit serve orthopedic cases including total knee replacement, generalize fractures, hip replacement, and spinal surgeries but also overflow bariatric and reconstructive surgery cases.

Teamwork

The nurses work in conjunction with physicians, physician extenders, social work, case management, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and nutritional services to form a multidisciplinary team that provides best practice and patient centered care based on our Innovative Care model. All members of the team participate in daily discharge planning rounds which help coordinate the transition of patients to home, rehabilitation centers, or skilled nursing facilities.
