Why choose Hospital for Special Surgery for care?
Read what patients are saying about us.


Theresa LaRocca-Napolitano, New York, NY shoulder rotator cuff repair, foot surgery
During the past six months, I have had two operative procedures at HSS. As a retired perioperative nurse, I do admit to being somewhat critical at times. However, my experiences at HSS were flawless. This includes not only my experiences on the days of surgery but also my pre and post operative visits to Dr. Scott Rodeo and Dr. Matthew Roberts. The offices are run like well oiled machines, yet the staff is warm, friendly and very professional. In my opinion HSS certainly lives up to and deserves its sterling reputation.
