Our surgeons continue to push the boundaries of what is possible in musculoskeletal care.
HSS is ranked #1 nationally in orthopedics for the 12th consecutive year by US News and World Report (2021-2022). No other hospital in the world focuses solely on the treatment and repair of bones, joints and their connective soft tissues. As a leader in advanced medical technology and surgical innovation, our mission is to give patients back health and productivity.
Specialized and focused
Patients come to HSS from all over the world to receive care from the best orthopedic surgeons in the world. Our surgeons are highly respected, highly trained and perform over 30,000 surgeries per year. HSS surgeons specialize in the following areas:
Unparalleled Experience – Superior Results
Hospitals that perform a particular surgery several times a year have the best results. HSS performs more joint replacements (hips, knees) each year than any other hospital in the United States – almost twice as many as the hospital with the second highest number.
HSS is also known to have very low infection rates. A New York State Department of Health study of New York hospitals showed that only the Hospital for Special Surgery had a significantly lower infection rate for hip replacement surgery than the state average – an HSS feat achieved for ten consecutive years (2008-2018).
Not all hospitals achieve the same results
Orthopedic surgery aims to reduce pain and allow you to return to the activities you enjoy. But not all hospitals get the same results. Some are more reliable than others. With the help of the HSS Hospital Reliability Scorecard, you can ensure that you are asking the essential questions to find the right hospital for you. Understanding the data points below will help you make the best decision for your care.
