The Hospital for Special Surgery, with locations in several states, provides support and qualified physicians for patients who prefer minimally invasive knee surgery, according to HHS. The hospital claims that HSS surgeons have performed more than 2,000 minimally invasive surgeries that are just as successful as more traditional approaches.
At HSS, professional doctors and surgeons guide patients through the surgery process, and help them along the way with recovery, follow-up and treatment. Dr. Thomas P. Sculpo, the Surgeon-in-Chief at HHS, notes that patients must fully understand how minimally invasive surgery differs from traditional joint replacement. It is important to realize that, although the process uses smaller incisions and has a speedier recovery with less trauma to soft tissues, it does still involve cutting of bone, realigning the soft tissue mechanisms, and inserting an implant.
The Hospital for Special Surgery's main campus is located on East 70th Street in Manhattan, New York. Other locations include Stamford, Connecticut; Paramus, New Jersey; Fresh Meadows, Queens, New York; Uniondale, Long Island; and White Plains, New York. There are also branches in Bradenton, Florida, and Jupiter, Florida. The company website allows users to find physicians, read about conditions and treatments, and find a convenient facility location.
