Hospital for Special Surgery (New York)Founded in 1863, Hospital for Special Surgery is the nation's longest-established orthopedic hospital. Today, Hospital for Special Surgery is a high-volume joint replacement center touting a 3.3 percent readmission rate for hip and knee replacements, significantly lower than the 4.6 percent national average. In 2016, the hospital launched a joint replacement registry to capture data and patient-reported outcomes for the 9,000 total hip and knee replacements performed at the hospital annually. U.S. News & World Report ranked Hospital for Special Surgery No. 1 in the nation for adult orthopedics for the eighth consecutive year in 2017. With such nationwide notoriety, it's no surprise that many of New York's professional athletic teams — including the Mets, Giants and Knicks — trust Hospital for Special Surgery as their official medical provider.
