The Center for Musculoskeletal Care – 333 East 38th Street


The Center for Musculoskeletal Care (CMC) is a new orthopaedics and rheumatology outpatient center considered to be the first stand-alone facility in the United States to bring clinical care and biomedical research resources for bone and joint patients together at a single point of service. The 110,000 square-foot CMC integrates research, clinical practice, rehabilitation and wellness services directed toward conditions involving the spine, arthritis, autoimmune diseases, sports injuries, and total joint replacement. Radiology, infusion therapy, rehabilitation, and pain management are also available on site. Among CMC's highlights is a state-of-the-art rehabilitation facility, with a large selection of state-of-the-art specialty equipment for sports injury cases. To learn more about the clinical services at CMC or to make an appointment, visit the CMC website or call 646-501-7070.

The new facility, spread across three floors in 333 East 38th Street, will also absorb certain outpatient services currently provided at NYU Langone Medical Center's Hospital for Joint Diseases. In addition it will house Rusk Rehabilitation therapy programs. 

NYULMC Outpatient Surgery, featuring four operating rooms and the latest in technology and clinical best practices, has been located at the same 38th Street address since November 2009.

Staffed by more than 300 orthopaedists, physiatrists, radiologists, therapists, nurses and support personnel, the CMC opened its doors to patients in March 2012, with services being rolled out gradually to a full complement by May.
