New Jersey Business—November 18, 2014
Patients from 105 countries and all 50 states come to Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS), and now HSS has come to New Jersey.
The New York City specialty hospital for orthopedics and rheumatology celebrated the grand opening of Hospital for Special Surgery Paramus Outpatient Center, at 140 East Ridgewood Avenue, with a ribbon-cutting on November 17.
"Expanding our patient-centered care and services in the New Jersey market is an important part of the hospital’s growth strategy," said Louis A.

Patients can now get the same outstanding care they've been receiving in Manhattan right in their own backyard," said Anil Ranawat, M.D., an orthopedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine.
