We were proud to support the @lupusresearchalliance at the 15th Annual Walk With Us to Cure Lupus event today in NYC! Taking place at the @intrepidmuseum, the goal of each Walk is to help further the mission to prevent, treat and cure lupus by raising funds for research. With the help of generous support from the LRA, our scientists are leading the way to uncover the underlying causes of lupus, develop better targets for therapy, and ultimately a cure. #HospitalForSpecialSurgery #Lupus #TeamHSS #WalkWithUs #IntrepidMuseum #LupusResearch

Please join us in thanking our Case Management team for the amazing work they do! #HospitalForSpecialSurgery #CaseManagement #PatientCare
Four years ago, John from Rock Tavern, NY, underwent a left knee replacement with Dr. David Mayman, hip and knee surgeon at HSS. A former catcher, the pain had become unbearable for John. When he met Dr. Mayman, he felt comfortable and confident that he would be able to get back to an active lifestyle post-surgery. John is now a CrossFit enthusiast and is seeing Dr. Mayman again for right knee pain. They are currently trying an non-operative approach, yet John is open to surgical intervention if necessary based on the fantastic results of the first knee. #HospitalForSpecialSurgery
