Our Specialties

Adult Reconstruction & Joint Replacement (ARJR)

Physicians at HSS pioneered the first modern knee replacement that was used worldwide in 1974. Today, surgeons in the ARJR Division continue to lead the field in both innovation and number of hip and knee replacement surgeries performed each year. 

Foot and Ankle

Complex, constantly impacted, rugged, yet intricately balanced, feet and ankles are some of the most frequently injured areas of the body. HSS leads a multidisciplinary approach to properly diagnosis your condition and provide an effective treatment plan. 

Pediatric Orthopedics

HSS treats thousands of infants, children, and adolescents each year. At HSS Long Island, we provide diagnosis and treatment of conditions like scoliosis, limb length discrepancies, clubfoot, hip dysplasia, and fractures. 


The physiatrists at HSS specialize in nonsurgical treatments of spinal and sports-related injuries, as well as diagnostic studies to determine whether patients have nerve or muscular disorders such as lumbar or cervical radiculopathy, carpal tunnel syndrome, and other debilitating conditions.


At HSS, you have the world’s best clinical team at your side with more experience in complex spine surgery than any other hospital in the world. We are committed to researching and advancing techniques to be less invasive and produce safer and longer lasting results. 

Sports Medicine

HSS is committed to providing a broad continuum of care to the athlete from the initial consultation to any surgical or nonsurgical treatment and finally, rehabilitation. HSS Long Island sports medicine physicians focus on personalized treatments and physical therapy to get you back into the game.

Physician Office Visits

Whether it is a first-time injury or a chronic condition, HSS expert physicians and surgeons employ the most advanced techniques to establish a precise diagnosis and treatment plan. Noninvasive care such as casting and bracing are available for your recovery.


Our Special Procedures Unit (SPU) offers convenient access to pain management (or pain treatment) procedures in an ambulatory setting instead of the operating room. 

Radiology and Imaging / MRI

Our unparalleled imaging technologies and expertise means an accurate diagnosis for you.

  • All HSS MRIs use high-spatial resolution and thin-slice imaging. These state-of-the-art techniques (not always available at other healthcare providers) helps HSS make a definitive diagnosis for any orthopedic condition, with special attention paid to the health of the cartilage, labrum and other soft tissues.
  • All MRI exams are interpreted by radiologists with additional specialty training in musculoskeletal imaging. Because of this focused expertise, HSS radiologists are frequently consulted by other doctors around the world.
  • Our high-resolution MRI exams do not require invasive intra-articular gadolinium contrast.
  • Traditional MRIs can be distorted by the natural magnetism present in some metallic medical implants. To address this, in patients who already have a joint replacement or other prosthesis, HSS uses a specialized scanning platform called MAVRIC (multi-acquisition variable-resonance image combination) to obtain an accurate reading.
  • HSS has devised modified MRI pulse sequences to detect cartilage damage in its early stages. This means that you may benefit from early intervention that could postpone or eliminate the need for surgery.

Postoperative Care

Attending scheduled follow-up care after your orthopedic procedure is integral to getting back on your feet. Many of our surgeons spend time at HSS Long Island so patients can spend less time traveling and more time recovering close to home.
