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


William Tucker,
Alexandria, VA Hip Replacement surgery
Of all hospitals I have been treated in over the past 80 years, Hospital for Special Surgery was the very "best." The orientation for my hip replacement for all levels of the process removed all concerns and resulted in my positive attitude going into the operation. Knowing I was in the best hands with Dr. Chitanjan Ranawat, it could not have been more of a success. My doctor and his staff, as well as those that supported him during my operation and recovery, should be very proud of their success in hip replacements relieving the pain and restoring my quality of life. I have and will continue to recommend HSS to my friends that need special surgery. I could not have been in better hands.
