Patient Testimonials

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


Melissa Hoffman, Stony Point, NY  wrist surgery
I broke my wrist in three places and had to have surgery and a metal plate put in. The first doctor basically didn't care and ignored the fact that I wasn't getting better with therapy. In January 2010, I saw Dr. Weiland - he performed a second surgery and it was a big help. Followed that with three months of therapy and I am as good as I'm gonna get. I can't thank him enough. He is a wonderful doctor. The staff and nurses that assisted were amazing, too. I had a much better experience with HSS than the hospital where I gave birth to my son. I always recommend HSS to everyone. Thank You.
