Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) facilities are located in New York City and Stamford, CT, and HSS is consistently recognized as the global leader in orthopedic surgery and musculoskeletal care. HSS is the nation’s oldest orthopedic hospital, and it is continually ranked #1 in the nation for orthopedic surgery and top-ranked for rheumatology.
HSS represents a team of dedicated professionals who are passionate about caring for patients with musculoskeletal conditions. Collaboration between surgeons, doctors in supporting specialties, nurses, technicians, and therapists around common patient conditions has allowed HSS to achieve an institutional focus on musculoskeletal care that is unrivaled. This unparalleled coordination provides HSS patients with superior outcomes, and it has made HSS a destination for orthopedic surgery. As a result, surgeons at the hospital perform more hip and knee replacement surgeries than at any other hospital in the United States, while also achieving the lowest infection rates for these procedures in the country.
Hospital for Special Surgery is home to some of the world’s most skilled orthopedic surgeons, including Dr. McLawhorn, who completed both his residency and advanced fellowship training at the institution. Like Dr. McLawhorn, HSS measures its success based on the safety of its surgery practices, advanced pain management, rapid rehabilitation, and industry-leading research.
