Why choose Hospital for Special Surgery for care?
Read what patients are saying about us.


Harold, Twp. of Washington, NJ hip replacement
I have recommended Dr. Boettner and HSS to several colleagues. My entire experience over the years at HSS has always been pleasurable - from the staff in Dr. Boettner's office, to the staff in the lab facilities, to the physical therapists, to the nurses - everyone I have dealt with has been courteous, friendly, knowledgeable and truly concerned for my health, well-being and recovery. I now know first-hand why HSS is ranked #1 across the country in orthopedics.
