Buffalo General's orthopedic suite (pictured right) creates a quieter, more relaxing environment for patients. Located on the 16th floor, each patient room offers large windows that provide plenty of light and breathtaking views of the city.  Our seven semi-private rooms and 28 private rooms feature amenities, softer lighting, hotel-like furnishings and new floors with a hardwood look. Accomodations are also available for a family member to stay overnight with the patient. We hope to deliver a very good experience that you can feel good about recommending to your friends and family.
