Personal Statement

Elton Strauss, MD FACS is associate professor of Orthopaedic Surgery and Geriatrics at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City. He is the Chief of Adult Reconstructive Surgery and Orthopaedic Trauma at the Mount Sinai Medical Center.

An orthopedic surgeon who knows how you feel and what you are going through. Dr. Strauss has had two successful shoulder repairs and three spine reconstructions, fortunately the operations were successful. These experiences left Dr. Strauss with a whole new prospective on the pain, anxiety and difficulties his patients face with their orthopaedic problems.

Dr. Strauss is an advocate of the geriatric patient, he has written and spoken extensively on primary arthroplasty for complex fractures of the knee and hip. He is part of the research team for prosthetic replacement of periprosthetic fractures as well as primary replacement for fractures.

Dr. Elton Strauss is a Board Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon with locations in Manahattan and Long Island.



I am writing this letter to bring to your attention the fine work of Dr. Elton Strauss. On September 22, Dr. Strauss did a hip replacement of an existing failed prosthesis on my mother, an 87-year-old patient with a number of risk factors beyond her age; including a triple heart valve replacement also done at Mt. Sinai many years ago by Dr. Landsman. She was in constant pain, and I can honestly say, found her life unlivable. After thoroughly pointing out in detail the risks involved, Dr. Strauss agreed to take on her case. His level of skill as a surgeon can only be matched by his level of compassion. My mom had a bit of a rough time with her recovery but is now doing well. We can thank Dr Strauss for making her life livable again and will be forever grateful for his "pushing the envelope" in the interest of compassionate care.
- Thank you so very much again
