As the #1 orthopedic hospital in the nation and the leader in surgical volumes for many orthopedic specialties, patients expect superior outcomes from treatment at Hospital for Special Surgery. The HSS Spine Center delivers on these expectations through our specialization and relentless focus on quality.
Research continues to demonstrate that the surgeons and hospitals that get the best results from spine surgeries tend to be the ones who perform those surgeries most often. Higher volume is correlated with lower rates of mortality, infection, pneumonia, and other complications. HSS performs more spine surgeries than other top national hospitals.
