    Dr. Todd Albert to complete surgeon-in-chief term in June, maintain spine practice at Hospital for Special Surgery

    Laura Dyrda -  

    Todd Albert, MD, will conclude his term as surgeon-in-chief and medical director of New York City-based Hospital for Special Surgery in June, and orthopedic surgeon Bryan Kelly, MD, will succeed him.

    Five things to know:

    1. In June, Dr. Albert will transition out of the surgeon-in-chief and medical director role, which he has held for the past five years. He will maintain his spine practice at Hospital for Special Surgery and become the fourth surgeon-in-chief emeritus at the hospital.

    2. During his time as surgeon-in-chief, Dr. Albert helped expand the hospital's reach to new locations in Westchester, N.Y, Paramus, N.J. and Stamford, Conn. He also spearheaded initiatives for additional locations in Florida, Manhattan, Brooklyn and Colorado, which are expected to open later this year.

    3. Dr. Albert championed patient safety and opioid stewardship during his time as surgeon-in-chief.

    4. Dr. Kelly will bring five years of experience as chief of HSS Sports and Shoulder Service to his new role as surgeon-in-chief. During that time, he helped the department make research and innovation advancements as well as promote multidisciplinary care and medical staff development.

    5. Hospital for Special Surgery provides care to 139,000 patients annually and its surgeons typically perform around 32,000 surgical procedures per year. The hospital also includes a research institute with 20 laboratories and 300 staff members.

    "This leadership transition will ensure HSS further extends our leadership position in musculoskeletal health," said HSS Board of Trustees Co-Chairs Thomas H. Lister and Robert K. Steel in a statement.
