Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS)
HSS is the world’s leading academic medical center focused on musculoskeletal health. At its core is Hospital for Special Surgery, ranked No. 1 for orthopedics for 10 consecutive years by U.S.News & World Report (2019-2020). HSS has also been among the top-ranked hospitals for both orthopedics and rheumatology for 28 consecutive years.
Because an infection can be a devastating outcome for an orthopedic patient, HSS takes infection control extremely seriously and has one of the lowest infection rates in the country.
HSS accepts most major insurance plans. Our Insurance Advisory Service can answer questions regarding your insurance coverage.
