Our Comprehensive Orthopedic Services Encompass:

Hip Replacement Surgery:

Objective: Hip replacement surgery is conducted when the hip joint sustains damage from conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or fractures, with the goal of alleviating pain, restoring mobility, and enhancing the patient’s overall quality of life.

Procedure: Hip replacement surgery involves two primary approaches: total hip replacement (THR), which replaces both the ball and socket of the hip joint, and partial hip replacement (hemiarthroplasty), which focuses on replacing only the ball portion.

Implants: The artificial hip joint components typically consist of materials like metal, plastic, or ceramic, chosen by surgeons based on the patient’s age, activity level, and specific requirements.

Recovery: Following the procedure, patients undergo physical therapy to regain strength and mobility, often experiencing reduced pain and improved hip function.


Custom Knee Replacement:

Objective: Custom knee replacement represents a personalized approach to knee arthroplasty, designed for patients experiencing severe knee pain or joint damage resistant to conservative treatments.

Procedure: Before surgery, the patient’s knee anatomy is meticulously assessed through advanced imaging and computer modeling, allowing for the creation of a customized knee implant that precisely fits the patient’s unique anatomy.

Advantages: Custom knee replacements frequently result in enhanced alignment, stability, and reduced pain when compared to standard knee replacements.

Recovery: The recovery process entails physical therapy to regain knee strength and range of motion, typically leading to reduced pain and improved knee function.


Hip Avascular Necrosis

Definition: Hip avascular necrosis occurs when the blood supply to the hip bone (femoral head) is disrupted, leading to the death of bone tissue.

Causes: This condition may arise due to factors such as trauma, prolonged corticosteroid use, excessive alcohol consumption, or certain medical conditions.

Treatment: Treatment options encompass medication for pain management and addressing underlying conditions. In advanced cases, surgical interventions like core decompression, bone grafting, or hip replacement may be necessary.


Cervical Myelopathy – Posterior Cervical Decompression and Fusion:

Objective: This procedure addresses cervical myelopathy, a condition characterized by spinal cord compression in the neck, with the aim of alleviating pressure on the spinal cord.

Procedure: Surgeons access the spine from the posterior (back) approach, removing any bone or tissue pressing on the spinal cord and fusing adjacent vertebrae to stabilize the spine.

Recovery: Patients may require physical therapy to regain strength and mobility, with the procedure often relieving symptoms such as numbness, weakness, and difficulty walking.


Degenerative Lumbar Spine – Fusion Surgeries – TLIF (Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion):

Objective: TLIF addresses degenerative conditions of the lumbar spine, including disc degeneration, herniation, or spondylolisthesis.

Procedure: During TLIF, the surgeon removes the problematic disc, inserts bone graft material into the vacated disc space, and incorporates hardware like screws and rods to fuse adjacent vertebrae.

Advantages: TLIF provides spinal stability, pain reduction, and potential improvements in overall function.


Degenerative Cervical Spine – ACDF (Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion):

Objective: ACDF is employed to treat cervical spine conditions such as herniated discs or spinal cord compression in the neck.

Procedure: Surgeons access the cervical spine from the anterior (front) approach, removing the damaged disc and fusing adjacent vertebrae with a bone graft to alleviate spinal cord pressure.

Recovery: This procedure can alleviate symptoms such as neck pain, arm pain, and numbness.


Lumbar Canal Stenosis and Degenerative Adult Scoliosis – Lumbar Fusion:

Objective: Lumbar fusion is recommended for conditions like lumbar canal stenosis or adult scoliosis to stabilize the spine.

Procedure: During lumbar fusion, two or more vertebrae are fused together using bone grafts and hardware to reduce pain and improve spinal alignment.

Advantages: Lumbar fusion can provide relief from pain, weakness, and other symptoms associated with these conditions.


Lumbar Discectomy:

Objective: Lumbar discectomy is performed to address herniated or damaged discs in the lumbar spine.

Procedure: The surgeon removes the portion of the disc pressing on nearby nerves, leading to a reduction in leg pain and improved mobility for patients.

Melville is a prosperous community and designated area for census purposes (CDP) located within the town of Huntington in Suffolk County on Long Island, New York. According to the 2020 census, it had a population of 19,284 residents.

The region wasoriginally referred to as Sunsquams by Native Americans. During the 17th century, it was called Samuel Ketcham’s Valley, and later it became known as Sweet Hollow.

In the 19th century, specifically in 1854, the name was changed to Melville in tribute to the renowned American novelist Herman Melville, who authored Moby Dick, published in 1851. Herman Melville’s novel Typee, from 1846, also enjoyed considerable popularity during that period. 

A Presbyterian church was constructed in Melville in 1829 at the intersection of Old Country and Sweet Hollow Roads. 

Moving into the 20th century, in 1977, the Presbyterian church was relocated one mile to the west. Although it was in continuous use until 1930, it was reopened in 1944 for Edward Baylis’s funeral and has been active since then.

In 1909, a trolley line connecting to Huntington was established, extending as far south as Amityville and with a connection to Babylon. This trolley line had six fare zones, including the Duryea Farm in Melville. However, it was closed down a decade later due to complaints from farmers about the noise frightening their animals. Buses replaced the trolley line, and the increasing use of private cars reduced the demand for public transportation.

During the 1950s, Melville, along with its neighboring areas Dix Hills and Wyandanch, as well as the region known as Sweet Hollow, considered incorporating as a single village called the Incorporated Village of Half Hollow Hills. This proposed village would have covered an area of approximately 50 square miles and encompassed the Half Hollow Hills Central School District (CSD 5), but the plans did not come to fruition.

In the 21st century, in 2001, Melville, Dix Hills, Wheatley Heights, and East Farmingdale, all part of the same school district, explored the possibility of incorporating as a single village. However, these plans were also unsuccessful, and each of these areas remains unincorporated hamlets to this day.

In May 2011, construction began to replace the 63-year-old Northern State Parkway bridge over NY Route 110. The project, with a budget of $56 million, was completed in 2014.

It’s worth noting that Jayne’s Hill in the neighboring hamlet of West Hills, with an elevation ranging from 387 to 400.9 feet above sea level, is the highest point on Long Island.



Based on the 2020 census, the population of Melville was 19,284, with 6,883 households. The population density stood at 1,599.60 people per square mile (617.61 per square kilometer).

There were 5,141 housing units, averaging 454.2 units per square mile (175.4 per square kilometer). The racial composition of the CDP was as follows: 84.6% White (with 82.6% being White Non-Hispanic), 7.4% Asian, 3% Black, 0% Native American, 0.1% Pacific Islander, 1.04% from other racial backgrounds, and 4.4% belonging to two or more races. Additionally, 4.4% of the population identified as Hispanic or Latino of any race.

At the time of the 2000 census, Melville had a population of 14,533 residents, residing in 4,930 households. The population density was 1,284.00 individuals per square mile (495.76 per square kilometer). By the 2010 census, the population had grown to 18,985.

In 2000, out of the 4,930 households, 38.1% had children under 18 living with them, and 72.2% were married couples living together. Additionally, 6.6% of households had a female householder with no husband present, and 19.0% were classified as non-family households. Individual households accounted for 15.7% of the total, and 6.8% had a person living alone who was 65 years or older. On average, households had 2.88 members, and families had an average size of 3.23.

In terms of age distribution, the population in the CDP was distributed as follows: 25.5% were under 18 years old, 5.3% were between 18 and 24, 29.1% were between 25 and 44, 26.0% were aged 45 to 64, and 14.1% were 65 years or older. The median age was 39 years. For every 100 females, there were 94.6 males, and among females aged 18 and over, there were 91.9 males.

In 2000, the median household income in the CDP was $132,527, and the median family income was $170,881. The median income for males was $142,972, while for females, it was $115,495. The per capita income for the CDP was $125,053. About 3.0% of families and 4.0% of the population were below the poverty line, including 5.2% of those under 18 years old and 3.2% of those aged 65 or over.
