Hospital for Special Surgery

New York, New York

HSS is nationally ranked No. 1 in orthopedics, and No. 2 in rheumatology by U.S.News & World Report (2016-17). HSS has been top-ranked for both orthopedics and rheumatology for 25 consecutive years.

Because an infection can be a devastating outcome for an orthopedic patient, Hospital for Special Surgery takes infection control extremely seriously and is proud of the recognition received for our significantly low infection rates.

HSS and a complement of physicians within each specialty area accepts most major insurance plans. Our Insurance Advisory Service can answer questions regarding your insurance coverage.
