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


Roseanne Kenney, Florham Park, NJ shoulder surgery
I had been suffering with a "frozen shoulder" for nearly nine months. I had tried all the suggested methods to ease the pain, but it intensified. I then came in for a consultation with Dr. Altchek. He was very calming and informative. He let me know what to expect, should I choose surgery. I needed to improve my quality of life, so I decided to have the surgery. From that day forward, I had amazing care. I was put in touch with his P.A. I was able to contact him whenever I had a question before, or after the surgery. He always responded quickly, which gave me peace of mind. I received prompt and courteous attention from Dr. Altchek and his staff at all times and would highly recommend their services.
