Why choose Hospital for Special Surgery for care?
Hear directly from our patients.

Fay Novack, New York, NY  total hip replacement
I entered Hospital for Special Surgery in tremendous pain and barely able to walk. I needed a total hip replacement. I was most fortunate to have Dr. Mark Figgie, a wonderful surgeon, operate on me. As soon the anesthesia wore off, I realized that my pain was gone. By the next morning, I was able to walk the whole floor of the hospital, and on the fourth day, I went home an extremely happy patient. The staff at Hospital for Special Surgery was so very caring and helpful. There was always a smile and much encouragement from everyone. Thank you, Hospital for Special Surgery and Dr. Figgie, for restoring my happy, active life. It is truly a miracle.
