Geriatric Doctors and Services on Long Island
Geriatric doctors, also known as geriatricians, provide specialized primary care and geriatric consultative services to individuals 65 years and older with complex health problems and chronic medical conditions as well as to those who enjoy good health.
As America’s “Baby Boomers”—approximately 76 million strong—grow older, the need for specialty trained geriatric doctors has increased rapidly. The National Institute on Aging reports that the number of persons age 65 and older will double within the next 25 years.
NYU Winthrop Hospital’s Geriatric Center on Long Island has carefully assembled an award-winning team of geriatric doctors working at the leading edge of innovative geriatric services. We provide the latest technology in screening and diagnostics, as well as state-of-the-art treatments and the most advanced robotic and minimally invasive surgical procedures. Our goal is to help our patients enjoy longer, healthier, active lifestyles.
