The Hospital for Special Surgery, or HSS, is expanding on Long Island with its first Suffolk County location, at 56 Flying Point Road in Southampton.
An academic medical center, HSS focuses on musculoskeletal health. HSS physicians serve as team doctors for the New York Giants, New York Knicks, New York Liberty, New York Mets, Long Island Nets and other professional sports teams, according to a news release about HSS’s expansion on Long Island.
“HSS Southampton responds to a steady increase in demand for our highly specialized orthopedic care from eastern Long Island,” Dr. Mark Drakos, medical director of HSS Long Island, said in a statement.
Physicians at the Southampton location will offer expertise in sports medicine, foot and ankle surgery, hand surgery, pain management, physiatry, spinal care and orthopedic trauma. They are the same physicians who see patients at the main hospital in New York City.
“Our team strives to ensure every patient’s experience across all HSS facilities is consistent and exceptional,” John Finger, senior vice president of HSS regional markets, said in the news release. “We look forward to continuing to serve active communities on Long Island by expanding our physical and digital reach to advance their musculoskeletal health and overall quality of life.”
Candidates for orthopedic surgery are cared for at the Upper East Side hospital.
“Long Island residents who have surgery in New York City are pleased to have the convenience of scheduling their pre-operative visits and post-operative care on Long Island,” Drakos saod.
The opening in Southampton follows an expansion and renovation at the HSS location in Uniondale. HSS has outpatient locations throughout New York, in New Jersey, in Connecticut and in Florida.
