Dr. Benedict Nwachukwu on joining Hospital for Special Surgery and emerging trends in sports medicine

Becker’s Spine Review interviews Benedict Nwachukwu, MD, MBA, sports medicine surgeon at HSS, who discussed what he looks forward to in his new role since joining HSS, and emerging trends in sports medicine.

Dr. Nwachukwu cited, “I am most looking forward to practicing in a place [HSS] with an unbelievable culture of excellence in orthopedic care delivery. Every single hospital personnel that interacts with a HSS patient is keyed in on delivering the best possible outcome and patient care experience. I believe that this detailed attention to every patient sets HSS apart. I am excited to be a surgeon in such a wonderful environment where I know that everyone is on the same team with the goal of getting the patient back in the game. I truly believe that practicing in the HSS culture of excellence will allow me to provide the best possible care to my patients.”

Dr. Nwachukwu cited he is most excited to witness the trend and evolution of hip preservation and hip arthroscopy over the next five years. He explained, “Hip arthroscopy is a relatively new procedure within orthopedics and within the past decade, surgical techniques for addressing femoroacetabular impingement have evolved significantly. We are at an exciting time in the field of hip preservation because we have the potential to address hip problems that previously needed open surgery. I specialize in hip arthroscopy and I am excited to help evolve techniques for labral repair, reconstruction, femoral head avascular necrosis and cartilage/subchondral disease.”
