Aetna Institute of Quality®
Care Facility for Total Joint Replacement
South Nassau Communities Hospital has been designated an Aetna Institute of Quality® Orthopedic Care Facility for total joint replacement. Aetna makes information about the quality and cost of health care services available to its members to help them make informed decisions about their health care needs. In line with this goal, Aetna recognizes hospitals and facilities in its network that offer specialized clinical services for certain health conditions. Facilities are selected for consistently delivering evidence-based, safe care.
"At South Nassau's Long Island Joint Replacement Institute, we understand that our patients deserve high-quality, standard-setting orthopedic joint replacement care and have every reason to expect us to provide it,” said Craig Levitz, M.D. and chair of orthopedic surgery. "Exceeding our patients' expectations and providing exceptional services is the only standard and this distinction just reinforces that for us."
South Nassau's Long Island Joint Replacement Institute offers a multidisciplinary team of experts that guides patients through personalized treatment options and recovery. Our custom-tailored treatment options relieve patients from the debilitating pain and lifestyle restrictions caused by joints damaged by overuse, repetitive injury and osteoarthritis. The Institute’s surgeons specialize in custom-fitted total joint replacement surgery as well as minimally invasive joint replacement surgery, which reduces trauma to the surrounding tissue, blood loss during surgery, post-operative pain and recovery time; and that leads to a faster rehabilitation and return to daily activities.
