Hospital for Special Surgery
Hip replacement is now the safest and one of the most common types of joint-replacement surgery-about 330,000 procedures are performed in the United States each year-thanks in good measure to advances in the procedure pioneered at the HSS. The 270 doctors at the hospital replaced 2,608 hips last year-more than any other facility in the country-while maintaining safety standards that have been singled out as industry-leading by everyone from the NIH to the Consumers’ Research Council of America to the AARP. The average length of stay for a single hip replacement at HSS is 4.48 days (that’s considered excellent), and its strict adherence to surgical-infection-prevention measures earned it the No. 1 ranking in the area from the New York State Department of Health. Dr. Thomas Sculco has pioneered a smaller-incision hip-surgery technique that can minimize pain, side effects, and recovery time, and Dr. Edwin Su is one of the first surgeons in the country to do hip resurfacing, a new procedure that preserves the joint by using an innovative metal implant.
