Keeping Patients Safe: A Message to Our Orthopedics Patients
Leesa M. Galatz, MD, Chair of Orthopedic Surgery, Mount Sinai Health System, encourages patients not to delay getting care for their bone and joint needs—whether hip, knee, or shoulder replacement, spinal fusion, carpal tunnel surgery, or surgery for athletic injuries or degenerative disease. Even as COVID-19 cases lessen in the New York area, Mount Sinai is taking every precaution to keep patients safe. Dr. Galatz discusses these protocols and describes what patients can expect during their visit to Mount Sinai.
