Welcome to the Hospital for Special Surgery International Center. We serve patients from around the globe seeking orthopedic and rheumatologic care. We believe that traveling to a foreign country for medical care should not be a difficult or anxiety-producing experience, and we strive to make your experience at our hospital as comfortable and easy as possible.
The International Center works to facilitate the clinical and related needs of international patients and their families with cultural sensitivity to ensure the highest quality standard of care. Our services include scheduling and confirming medical appointments, preparing cost estimates, coordination of billing and payment arrangements, Hospital Belaire Guest Facility reservations, and arranging medical interpreters. In 2016, the International Center assisted approximately 1,200 patients from over 85 countries.
From the beginning, our staff assists you in arranging a referral to the most appropriate physician for your condition. We will then work with you and your family members to arrange for all appointments, services, and amenities you will need before, during, and immediately following your hospital visit.
The goal of HSS is to alleviate pain, restore function, and enhance quality of life. The goal of the International Center is to make certain that access to world-class care is not a world away.
