Elective Surgery

Shoulder reconstruction. Elbow replacement. Knee surgery. These are just some of the elective surgeries offered by ECMC.

So why should you choose ECMC for elective surgery? We’re the region’s only adult trauma center, which means the surgeon performing your knee surgery in the morning could have spent the previous day reconstructing someone’s entire leg. Because our surgeons handle some of the most difficult and complex cases, they’re extremely skilled and highly experienced, able to handle nearly any type of procedure. Of course, our partnership with UB Orthopaedics is also a significant advantage, as it brings some of the most recognized, innovative specialists in Western New York – who also happen to be University at Buffalo professors – together with our highly trained staff here at ECMC. So remember, even when it’s not an emergency, ask your doctor to refer you to ECMC.
