U.S. News recently released their list of the best hospitals in America. The researchers ranked hospitals according to 16 different specialties, and those hospitals that ranked high for six or more specialties made the Honor Roll.
At Spine-health we would like to especially congratulate the hospitals that ranked high for orthopedics, neurology and neurosurgery, and the physicians, nurses, physical therapists, chiropractors - and all the staff - who are associated with these excellent institutions.
The Hospital For Special Surgery in New York, NY ranked #1 for orthopedics and John Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, MD ranked #1 for neurology and neurosurgery. See a complete list of the top 50 hospitals for both specialties.
We'd especially like to recognize certified Spine-health physicians who are affiliated with these top-ranked hospitals:
- Drs. John Shin and Frank Pedlow of Massachusetts General Hospital
- Dr. Gunnar Andersson of Rush Hospital in Chicago
- Dr. Richard Guyer of UT Southwestern School of Medicine
- Drs. Andrew Casden, Sean McCance, Michael Neuwirth, M. Darryl Antonacci of Mount Sinai
- Dr. Dante Implicito of Hackensack University Medical Center
Providing quality care can make or break a spine patient's outcomes, and we recognize these hospitals and their staffs for going the extra mile.
Traveling to the best institution you can for your surgery can cause much added stress and expense. Do your best to research how complicated your procedure is. As a general rule of thumb, the more difficult the procedure the more important it is to seek out the best surgeon and hospital you possibly can.
If you decide the best facilities are too far way to make the travel worth it, U.S. News also breaks down hospital rankings by state.
