Jamaica Hospital Opens New, State-Of-The-Art Orthopedic Surgery Center
Jamaica Hospital Medical Center announced that it will be opening its new, ultra-modern, orthopedic surgery center on November 11, 2021.
The 4,800 square foot center was created to provide a patient-centered environment to treat members of the community living with a variety of adult and pediatric orthopedic issues including fractures, injuries of the upper extremity (hands, wrists, fingers, elbows), arthritis, sports-related injuries, and more. The center features eight exam rooms, two consultation rooms, a state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging room, and other amenities, all designed with the comfort of patients in mind.
Jamaica Hospital’s orthopedic surgery center is staffed by an award-winning team of surgeons led by Chairman Dr. Sanjit Konda. Each physician is highly trained in their specialties and offers surgical and non-surgical treatment options, most of which can now be performed on-site. “We’re pleased to provide our community with a world-class orthopedic surgery center that utilizes the latest technology in our field. This includes advanced medical imaging devices such as C-arm fluoroscopy machines. Our patients will receive exceptional and personalized care from some of the best doctors in our region,” shared Dr. Konda. In addition to serving patients in the community, the surgical group is proud to be recognized as the official founding medical partner of Queensboro FC (QBFC), New York City’s newest soccer team. The group exclusively provides medical services to QBFC professional athletes.
The announcement of the opening of Jamaica Hospital’s orthopedic surgery center comes as great news to many as plans were halted during the peak of the pandemic. During this time, the hospital’s singular focus shifted to treating COVID patients. All surgical procedures were suspended, and all healthcare providers including orthopedic surgeons were called upon to help treat critically ill patients.
Jamaica Hospital’s orthopedic surgeons joined many on the frontline in the fight against COVID and their contributions are greatly appreciated. Thankfully now that COVID infection rates and hospitalizations are much lower in New York City, these doctors can return to treating their patients. Lower rates have also allowed the hospital to return its focus on enhancing the wide variety of services it offers the community.
