Hospital for Special Surgery’s Department of Social Work Programs is an integral part of our Hospital’s health care team. Living with arthritis or an orthopedic concern can affect you and your family’s emotional, social, and practical well-being. You may want support to cope with a new diagnosis, clarify treatment options, or help to locate community resources. Whatever your concerns, we’re here to provide you with outstanding care.
The Department of Social Work Programs offers more support and education programs in its areas of specialty than any other hospital in the United States.
Our entire Social Work Programs staff is committed to meeting your needs as a whole person.
