The HSS Orthopedic Trauma Service in New York City is a world-renowned facility staffed with the top specialists in trauma care. The OTS works in collaboration with NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center providing orthopedic emergency care. We treat all fractures including the upper extremity and lower extremity, pelvis, acetabulum and other bones and joints, isolated fractures/dislocations, and polytrauma.
