Foot and Ankle Service


Research is at the core of the mission of the Hospital for Special Surgery.

Our goal is to investigate the delivery of medical care to our patients and then provide them with the highest possible outcomes. This is accomplished by using the latest techniques available. Furthermore, our foot and ankle registry, comprised of over 35,000 patients, allows our department to draw on prior patient experiences to constantly improve the level of care we provide. We are currently conducting many clinical trials in addition to performing basic science research in the laboratory to answer research questions that arise from within HSS as well as from across the globe.
