Here is a Checklist of Items to Help You Get Started on the Road to Recovery
The HSS International Center will handle scheduling of appointments with our office, coordinate billing and payment arrangements and arrange for medical interpreters while you are here.
Arrange for appropriate travel to the office including air and ground transportation.
If surgery is deemed necessary we will help you arrange a convenient surgical date.
Hospital for Special Surgery’s Belaire Guest Facilities offers comfortable lodging that is conveniently located directly across from the Hospital. Belaire units can also be used prior to hospital admission and beyond hospital discharge.
We will determine based on your medical history whether you need further testing to be done prior to surgery with one of our medical doctors. This helps us determine if you are a candidate to have surgery at our ambulatory surgery center or the main hospital.
After surgery we will arrange for you to meet with one of our expert therapists at HSS Sports and Performance PT in order to tailor a physical therapy program that you can take with you so you can continue therapy once you return home.
