Your surgery will take place at Beth Israel Medical Center, located on 1st Avenue at 16th Street in Manhattan. The main hospital telephone number is (212) 420-2000. Surgical procedures fall into two general categories: Ambulatory surgery, in which you come in to the hospital the day of surgery and go home immediately following your procedure; and Same Day Admission surgery, in which you arrive at the hospital the day of surgery and then are admitted to the hospital for an overnight stay or longer. All routine arthroscopic procedures are performed on an ambulatory basis. Complex joint reconstruction including total hip and total knee replacement require a 2 day stay in the hospital.
