Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS)

The Hospital for Special Surgery, located in New York City, is the location of one of our outstanding outside rotations. HSS is a world-renowned specialty hospital for the treatment of orthopedic and rheumatologic disorders. Regional anesthesia or analgesia is used in virtually every case here, and the anesthesiology faculty graciously host one Hopkins resident each month in order to impart their expertise in the specialty. While at HSS, the resident performs a large number of upper and lower extremity peripheral nerve blocks and catheter placements. Though optional, this very popular month-long rotation can be taken advantage of by any CA-3 resident. As an added benefit, the Department of Anesthesiology at HSS rents an apartment on the Upper East Side of Manhattan for use by the rotating residents.

Many Hopkins residents choose to pursue a regional anesthesia fellowship at HSS after residency. To learn more about this opportunity, click here.
