HSS Main Campus Transformation

Introducing the Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Tower

This fall, construction will commence on the Kellen Tower, which will provide expanded space for HSS to continue to deliver the nation’s leading care in joint replacement and spine. Read more about how this new facility will allow HSS to meet the growing and significant need for our specialized care.


Advancing the Field With Technology

Augmented Reality Improves Spine Surgery

HSS spine surgeons are using innovative technology to provide ultraprecise positioning of implants and smaller incisions, leading to faster recovery for patients. HSS Spine Co-Chief Harvinder Sandhu, MD, MBA, performed the first surgery using augmented reality earlier this year and is leading surgeons in using the new system, now available at HSS Stamford Health.


Eradicating Infection

Leading the Fight Through Research

Patients who develop infections after joint replacement surgery can experience severe consequences—debilitating pain and immobility, multiple surgeries, and possibly loss of a limb. Under the direction of HSS Chief Emeritus of Surgical Arthritis Mark P. Figgie, MD, HSS has launched the Periprosthetic Joint Infection (PJI) Research Initiative to define the global standard for prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of this devastating condition.
