Hospital for Special Surgery is the Official Hospital of the New York Giants and multiple other professional and collegiate sports teams in the New York area. Our physicians have served as team doctors for the Giants for over 30 years and can be found on the sidelines at every game.
HSS was an Official Health Services Provider for the NY/NJ Super Bowl XLVIII Host Committee and HSS physicians were on hand to provide expert orthopedic care to the New York Giants. They also worked to ensure that any medical and emergency needs were met during Super Bowl week activities, and that volunteers, staff and fans stayed healthy and safe during the Super Bowl.
As a patient at HSS, you can be assured that your football injury will be treated by doctors and therapists who are on the field and at the top of their game.
As a contact sport, football combines repetitive running, pivoting and kicking with impact, which eventually leads to multiple types of sports injuries. While these injuries can affect any part of an athlete’s body, two common areas of concern include the head and knee.
