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


Holly Decaro, Weston, CT spine surgery
It is rare to find a specialist that is not only knowledgeable and professional, but compassionate as well. I had scoliosis surgery in April and Dr. Cunningham and his assistant, Tina, were the best I have ever met. They turned a traumatic experience into something positive.

I have worked with doctors for 8 years and Dr. Cunningham was so patient and kind. My choice of physicians to do this surgery was well researched, but you can't do a search on bedside manner. He was fantastic and I just can't say enough about how pleased I am with the surgery. It has been 6 months and I am still healing, but I am confident that I will fully recover.

I would recommend that anyone considering spinal surgery turn to the expert staff at HSS.
