New Facility Improves Access to Non- and Post-Surgical Care
NEW YORK, June 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS), the academic medical center ranked #1 in the world for Orthopedics according to Newsweek, today opens HSS Midtown at 770 Lexington Avenue in New York City. The new facility focuses on providing specialized non-surgical and post-surgical care, with Physiatry, Sports Medicine, Pain Management, Spine, and Neurology, as well as complementary services to support musculoskeletal health needs.
HSS Midtown’s medical services include diagnosis of musculoskeletal issues, physical therapy, digital X-ray and non-surgical care, as well as convenient access to care coordination and evaluations, follow-up and post-surgical care for patients undergoing surgical procedures at other HSS locations. “HSS Midtown is designed to overcome many of the reasons why too many people are enduring unnecessary pain and impairment,” said HSS Physiatrist-in-Chief Joel M. Press, MD. “An integrated team of non-surgical and surgical specialists, in a gorgeous new midtown location where you can book directly, open also evenings and on Saturdays.”
“HSS has been part of the fabric of midtown Manhattan for more than 100 years, since long before the capabilities of this new location were imaginable,” said Louis A. Shapiro, President and CEO of HSS. “With our 18th location, plus virtual care, HSS quality is now within a few clicks or a few miles of most people who live or work in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut or Florida.”
An entire floor of HSS Midtown is dedicated to Rehabilitation and Performance services, including hand therapy, occupational therapy and performance training. State-of-the-art technologies include the only FDA-certified markerless motion capture system, which aids in analyzing the quality of a person’s movement and guiding injury prevention. Other integrative medicine services, including acupuncture, massage therapy and Pilates, will be offered by trained HSS experts to complement and optimize patients’ overall health.
“The breadth of services offered at HSS Midtown means our patients will be able to meet multiple needs in one location,” said Dr. Press. “Our goal is to provide comprehensive care for all patients’ musculoskeletal needs.”
Saturday and evening hours are available at HSS Midtown. To schedule an in-person or virtual visit, call 646.618.7777 or visit HSS.edu/Midtown.
