Patient Testimonials

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

Michael Nixon, Greenwich, CT Hip replacement
I admire all of HSS. I could say many things others already have said, but I want to talk about me. I could say those at HSS are "professional, sanitary, careful, responsive, graceful, esprit de corp, smiling," but here is the important thing - my thirteen-minute mile. I will be back at HSS. We are partners in my happy next twenty years. I can still climb three stories, two stairs at a time. Thank you, Dr. Cornell!
