Dr. Ronald Huang, who came to BronxCare having completed a joint replacement fellowship at the Hospital for Special Surgery, leads the clinical efforts in this area. Each patient is thoroughly evaluated in the preoperative phase and closely monitored during their surgery and postoperative follow-up. As innovators in the design and techniques of joint replacement surgery, the team provides patients with the full range of available options.

The joint replacement team has added a comprehensive episode of care program, which is an integral part of an innovative national program leading to enhanced recovery for joint replacement. It is anchored by two physician assistants: John Bonsu, Director, Outpatient Joint Replacement, and Gabriella Iodice, Director, Inpatient Clinical Services.
