Orthopedics Milestone

"It has been a privilege to spend my entire career at Columbia and the New York Orthopaedic Hospital. The merger with Columbia in 1950 established a wonderful partnership that helped NYOH become a true academic institution. Together, NYOH and Columbia have advanced the standard of patient care, trained future orthopedic leaders, and supported groundbreaking research in the field of orthopedics."

— Louis U. Bigliani, MD, orthopedic surgery resident and fellow (1974-1978)
and chair, Department of Orthopedic Surgery (1998-2014)
