HSS Orthopedics

HSS, America’s #1 choice for back and neck care, strengthens its collaboration with Stamford Health to deliver the highest-quality multidisciplinary spine care in Connecticut, with better outcomes through specialization.

The HSS Spine Center with Stamford Health provides patients 12 years and older access to orthopedic care for back and neck conditions.

The program is intended for patients who have not yet seen an orthopedic specialist for their condition and do not need emergency care. Appointments are required and available within 72 hours or less.

The HSS Spine Center with Stamford Health is in-network with most major insurance plans. Please check with your insurance carrier to see if a referral is required.

Our personalized approach

At the first visit, you will be seen by an HSS physician assistant who will evaluate your symptoms, provide treatment, and develop a care plan.

Our team will also help you to schedule any necessary follow-up care in a timely manner, so you don’t have to figure out the next steps on your own. As a patient of the HSS Spine Center with Stamford Health, you will receive quick access to one of our highly trained specialists, whose areas of expertise include:

  • Physical therapy.
  • Physiatry.
  • Pain management.
  • Neurology.
  • Neurointerventional radiology.
  • Surgery.

If you’re still receiving care with us after four weeks, a dedicated patient navigator will proactively reach out to you. Their role is to guide you through the rest of your journey so you can get back to the things you need and love to do as quickly as possible. They will contact you at specific intervals to evaluate your needs to make sure you’re receiving the right level of care at the right time.

Please note that we are not equipped to provide injection therapy or emergency care during your first visit.

  • Lower back pain.
  • Middle back pain.
  • Upper back pain.
