Hospital for Special Surgery is ranked as the #1 orthopedics hospital by U.S. News and World Report. Each year, patients travel from across the globe for treatment by our medical staff, many of whom serve as official team physicians for the New York Giants, New York Knicks, New York Mets, Brooklyn Nets, USA Basketball, and the New York Red Bulls. Our physicians are world leaders in treating some of the devastating bone, joint, and autoimmune conditions, such as lupus, arthritis, traumatic injuries, cerebral palsy, brittle bone disease, limb length discrepancies, and spine disorders like scoliosis and ankylosing spondylitis. We treat both adults and children.
As a global leader in orthopedics and rheumatology, the HSS Research Division, with over 200 dedicated personnel, is translating discoveries and innovations into effective therapies and cures that enable more patients to live full and productive lives. Our physicians and scientists work hand-in-hand to pioneer new techniques and treatments that ultimately become standards of care throughout the worldBy leading to breakthroughs that will transform the care of patients, our scientists are driving the field of musculoskeletal research forward. Their discoveries, many of which are only happening at HSS, hold the promise of providing cures for these debilitating musculoskeletal conditions.
As an employee of HSS, I am proud to run the 2015 NYC marathon to raise money for our Research Division. I hope you will help me reach my goal of raising $5000 for research.
