Dr. Joshua Rozell is a hip and knee replacement surgeon at NYU Langone with practices in Brooklyn and Manhattan. He specializes in anterior approach hip replacement, computer-navigated and robotic knee replacements, and outpatient joint replacement surgery. Many of the techniques he uses allow patients to recover more quickly and improve their function and strength after surgery. He did his undergraduate training at Emory University, went to medical school at Drexel University, and had his orthopaedic surgery residency at the University of Pennsylvania, along with a hip and knee replacement fellowship at the prestigious Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colorado.
Dr. Manuel Wilfred is a physical therapist who provides care for joint replacement patients at NYU Langone-Brooklyn. He has worked with orthopedic patients both inpatient and outpatient throughout his 19 years in the profession. Prior to being at NYU Langone-Brooklyn, he received his bachelor's degree in physical therapy from India and then he left that country to study at University College London and work in the National Health Service's Middlesex Hospital. He has a doctor of physical therapy degree from the University of Montana and completed his PhD degree from Seton Hall University.
In Part 2, we discussed: advanced surgical techniques employed for both hip and knee surgery; time after surgery when physical therapy interventions are initiated; other kinds of members of the health care team at NYU Langone Health involved both pre- and post-surgery to make possible same-day discharge; additional therapy provided once patients return home and when it is initiated; the role of telehealth in delivering home-based care; situations at home that may result in patients seeking emergency room care or requiring in-patient hospitalization; whether patients who undergo bilateral hip and knee surgery are suitable candidates for same-day discharge; and kinds of research being conducted at NYU involving same-day discharge.
