Words cannot express how impressed my family is with this incredible doctor. My 12 yr old daughter had spinal fusion T2-L3. Dr. Widmann did an exceptional job from start to finish. My daughter had seen two other surgeons prior to him. She was brought to tears by how he treated her with such respect and dignity. He was the first doctor who actually spoke directly to her. Shook her hand and asked her if she had anymore questions. Explained everything and without any pressure. Results are amazing!. Dr. Widmann performed scoliosis correction surgery on my 13 year old daughter. Dr. Widmann and his team made us feel completely at ease despite the circumstances. The surgery was a huge success - we are 7 months post surgery and have had no issues at all. Our daughter is a competitive soccer player and she was back on the pitch exactly when Dr. Widmann said she would be. Everyone is amazed by how quickly and how well she recovered. Could not have asked for a better experience or outcome! My 13 Year old Daughter had surgery done by Doctor Widmann @ the hospital for Special surgery. The surgery was completed at about 3:00 P.M. on Monday, Friday at 11:00 A.M. She walked out of the hospital, Well by Law the hospital was required to wheel her down to the car but she easily could have walked. She left with very little pain. It has now just been 2 weeks and she is very active, too active in my opinion but regardless recovery has been the exact opposite as I had expected. The Hospital for special surgery was amazing, in every aspect from the janitors right up to the head Doctor. Nursing staff, Therapists, food service, every employee of the hospital were the most respectful, caring and amazing people I have ever met. Even the food was great, healthy, well put together meals, as I also ate every meal of the day there also. I would recommend 100% Dr. Roger Widmann & The Hospital for special surgery My daughter was recently operated on by Dr. Widmann for severe scoliosis. Dr. Widmann provided us with all the info we needed to make the best decision for our daughter. We felt extremely comfortable having him do the surgery and her results have been nothing short of amazing. I would highly, highly recommend Dr. Widmann.

Hospital for Special Surgery Opens New Location in Paramus, New Jersey

Patients from 105 countries and all 50 states come to Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) for what many believe to be the world’s finest orthopedic care, and now HSS is coming to New Jersey.The highly-rated New York City specialty hospital for orthopedics and rheumatology celebrated the grand opening of Hospital for Special Surgery Paramus Outpatient Center, at 140 East Ridgewood Avenue, with a ribbon-cutting on November 17.

The new 8,000 square-foot office, which took six months to complete, features eight exam rooms and two x-ray suites. Conveniently located near Route 17 and the Garden State Parkway, the office will offer medical diagnosis, pre-and post-operative care, non-surgical injury management and other services.

“Expanding our patient-centered care and services in the New Jersey market is an important part of the hospital’s growth strategy,” said Louis A. Shapiro, president and CEO of Hospital for Special Surgery. “New Jersey residents will be able to receive the same high level of care we offer in Manhattan, closer to where they live.”

The hospital’s goal is to bring more services to the New Jersey community to make access to care as convenient as possible, according to Mr. Shapiro. If surgery is needed, it will be performed at the main hospital in Manhattan.

Located on the Upper East Side, HSS already attracts a large patient population from northern New Jersey. Recognized for excellence in orthopedic and rheumatology care, HSS is building on its reputation to serve more N.J. patients who prefer to see doctors closer to home.

Hospital for Special Surgery is consistently ranked No. 1 in orthopedics and No. 3 in rheumatology by U.S. News and World Report in its annual “Best Hospitals” survey. Many sports enthusiasts know HSS as the official hospital for the New York Mets, the New York Giants, the Knicks and other professional teams.

The doctors affiliated with Hospital for Special Surgery are highly specialized. Nine HSS physicians will be available to see patients at the Paramus Outpatient Center. Specialties include orthopedic foot and ankle, pain management, pediatric orthopedics and scoliosis, primary care (nonsurgical) sports medicine, sports medicine and shoulder surgery, and rheumatology.

“I’m excited to have the opportunity to see patients in their local community,” said David Wang, MD, a primary care physician specializing in nonsurgical sports medicine at HSS. Dr. Wang, who lives in Bergen County, said he is also looking forward to community events in which he will be able to share his knowledge of sports medicine topics of interest.

“I think the biggest benefit will be the convenience factor. Patients can now get the same outstanding care they’ve been receiving in Manhattan right in their own backyard,” said Anil Ranawat, M.D, an orthopedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine. Dr. Ranawat, who lives in Bergen County and grew up there, will now see patients in Paramus and in New York City.
