Limb Reconstruction & Joint Replacement Surgery

I am Dr Nakul V Karkare; an orthopedic surgeon specialized in limb reconstruction and joint replacement surgery. I have operating privileges at Winthrop Hospital, St Charles Hospital, St. Catherine Hospital, Mather Hospital and Peconic Bay Medical Center. I serve on the FDA advisory board, under the Orthopedic and Rehabilitation Device Panel. This website is specially designed for our patients to have all the necessary information related to anterior approach total hip replacement, patient specific knee replacement, complex revision hip and knee joint replacement, and metabolic bone disease management. In addition to this, the site provides information on appointments, driving directions, contact details and much more.
