Andreas Dracopoulos honored by Hospital for Special Surgery

Jun 08, 2022
Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) Co-President Andreas Dracopoulos was honored at the Hospital for Special Surgery’s (HSS) annual Tribute Dinner in New York City.

Andreas and SNF have enjoyed a long and productive collaboration with HSS focused on empowering HSS practitioners and sharing their world-leading expertise in orthopedics and rheumatology so that it can benefit more people in New York and far beyond.

The HSS-Stavros Niarchos Foundation Orthopedic Seminar Program, for instance, formed a long-term bridge of knowledge exchange between Greece and New York, with Greek surgeons honing new skills through case presentations and hands-on practice at HSS to improve the care they deliver back home. The SNF Complex Joint Reconstruction Center deals with the most challenging cases in the already demanding field of joint replacement, centralizing HSS’s world-class resources to create a one-stop shop that improves patient outcomes.

HSS performs more than 32,000 surgical procedures each year and has made education a core component of its mission, reaching tens of thousands of medical professionals in scores of countries.
