Cayuga Health System has teamed up with the University of Rochester Medical Center and specifically URMC Orthopedics and Rehabilitation, one of the largest, most comprehensive orthopedic practices in the region. With nearly forty board-certified or board-qualified doctors, URMC offers every sub-specialty in the field of orthopedics and sees more than 180,000 patients per year.
The URMC physicians conduct research and develop and use the latest methods to treat orthopedic conditions in adults and children. The department provides national leadership in orthopedics and continues to be one of the top NIH (National Institutes of Health) funded programs in the country.
Cayuga’s board-certified orthopedic surgeons all have sub-specialty training. The purpose of working collaboratively with URMC is to provide our community with easy access to a broader range of orthopedic services. Through this collaboration our orthopedic surgeons have the ability to consult with, or refer to, URMC doctors with different areas of expertise. The goal is to ensure that every patient receives the highest quality of orthopedic care possible.
Cayuga Health System collaborates with Ithaca College faculty for our residency and fellowship programs. Many of our therapists teach, on some level, at the college sharing their expertise with the next generation of therapists.
This relationship benefits therapy staff, faculty, students, continuing education participants, and patients by enhancing knowledge of current best practices.
