Stamford Hospital, the flagship hospital of Stamford Health, and Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) have entered into a collaborative agreement to create the premier center for specialty orthopedic care in New England.
HSS has been nationally ranked #1 for orthopedics by U.S. News & World Report for the past eight consecutive years, and is the world's leading academic medical center focused solely on musculoskeletal health.
Our promise to you is to offer more. That's especially prevalent in our performance. Our surgical team practices the most advanced surgical techniques available today and, whenever possible, utilizes minimally invasive spine surgery to speed recovery, lower risk, reduce pain, and prevent damage to healthy tissue. We conduct a thorough examination and supervise extensive testing for each of our patients to determine which, if any, of these procedures would be beneficial for them.
Image-guided surgery allows our surgeons to look at a detailed three-dimensional view inside the spine in real time. With this technology, we can locate the abnormality more precisely and approach it as directly as possible and avoid disturbing delicate, healthy tissue and nerves. We are able to manipulate the three-dimensional view in real-time during surgery. We receive a constant flow of information during surgery, so we can continuously refine treatment.
