David S. Levine, MD, has been named as the medical director for the new Ambulatory Surgery Center of Manhattan. The Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) is the nation’s oldest orthopedic hospital, ranking No. 1 in orthopedics by U.S.News & World Report. The hospital plans to open the HSS Ambulatory Surgery Center in July 2017.
"It's a very exciting initiative," says Dr. Levine, who is a foot and ankle surgeon at HSS. "We are enthusiastic about the new location and to be offering an expansion of access to ambulatory surgery, which ultimately will benefit our patients."
The new ambulatory surgery center is more than 22,000 square feet and located at 1233 Second Avenue at 65th street, just a short distance from the main hospital campus for HSS. The center has a total of four operating rooms in addition to a 16 pay pre-surgical and post-surgical unit.
