The Orthopedic Surgery Department at Good Samaritan is composed of board certified orthopedic surgeons and their staff members. A full complement of orthopedic subspecialties are represented, with expertise in the treatment of trauma, total joint replacement, sports medicine, hand surgery and spinal surgery. The orthopedic service is an integral part of the multi-disciplined trauma team for the treatment of multiple trauma, for both adults and children.
The Ambulatory Surgical Unit allows the orthopedic staff the ability to perform multiple types of arthroscopy (a minimally invasive procedure used to visualize, diagnose and treat some types of joint problems) and other extremity procedures, including a large number of shoulder and knee arthroscopy procedures on an outpatient basis. Approximately 1,600 orthopaedic procedures are performed annually at Good Samaritan. Advanced equipment and instrumentation are available for the treatment of fractures, joint replacements and arthroscopy procedures for sports-related injuries and ligament reconstructions.

Verified Level II Trauma Center for Adults and Pediatrics
Designated as Level-II, the Trauma Center at Good Samaritan is one of only two hospitals in Suffolk County with ACS verification to treat both adults and children. With an Emergency Department that treats nearly 90,000 patients each year, the most of any facility in Suffolk County, this verification is a direct result of the investment and commitment the Center has made to patients on the south shore and all of Long Island.
