Flushing, NY, November 20, 2009 – In order to increase access to orthopaedic care and rehabilitation medicine, New York Hospital Queens recently brought on two additional orthopaedic surgeons.
The addition of surgeons Alexander Golant, M.D., and Tony Quach, M.D., to the hospital’s department of orthopaedics and rehabilitation is part of a successful effort to bring together expertise in comprehensive orthopaedic and musculoskeletal care, and then make it convenient for those who live or work in Queens to access that expertise.
||Alexander Golant, M.D., has joined the hospital as an attending orthopaedic surgeon. He is fellowship trained in sports medicine from Lenox Hill Hospital, New York, NY. He served as chief resident in orthopaedic surgery at the New York University Hospital for Joint Diseases and achieved his medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine in Philadelphia, PA. He is fluent in Russian.
|Tony Quach, M.D., has joined NYHQ as an attending orthopaedic surgeon. As well, he is fellowship trained in sports medicine from the UCLA Department of Sports Medicine.

Both surgeons perform a range of bone and joint procedures. They are available to see patients at the main NYHQ campus in Flushing, and in the new Center for Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation Medicine in Fresh Meadows.
“These new surgeons have joined our growing team as a much needed resource for patients as well as community-based physician practices in Queens,” said Jeffrey Rosen, M.D., chairman, department of orthopaedics and rehabilitation, New York Hospital Queens. “Within 25 years, one in five people in the U.S. will be 65 years old. As more of the ‘baby boomers’ approach their golden years, they need quality joint and bone care to keep them on their feet. We absolutely must fill that need, among many others, right here in Queens.”
New York Hospital Queens is a member of the New York-Presbyterian Healthcare System and an affiliate of the Weill Medical College of Cornell University.
