"Thank you Hospital for Special Surgery and Dr. Figgie for restoring my happy, active life. It is truly a miracle."
"I was extremely impressed by the excellent care I received at HSS when I had a total knee replacement in March. I will never cease to be grateful for it. "
"The surgery was extremely successful, and I was free of the pain associated with the hip immediately. I was on my feet walking the next day. "
"I would like to express my gratitude to Dr. Mayman, his team and Hospital for Special Surgery for providing the best medical and nursing care I ever had. I am back at work seeing a full schedule of patients, pain free with 121 degrees of flexion in the left knee. The Oxinium knee changed my life."
"Eight other doctors, affiliated with four other teaching hospitals in New York City, diagnosed my problem as stemming from a herniated disk compressing the nerve at the L5/S1 level. Why is it significant that Dr. Waldman made his diagnosis on Tuesday, April 9th? Because two surgeons, one specializing in neurosurgery and the second in minimally invasive spine surgery, were originally scheduled to operate on my back that day."
"I was cared for with kindness, compassion, humor. The nurses were ALWAYS available, explaining every thing they were doing and again answering all my questions and giving me encouragement. "
"I consider Dr. Semih Gungor to be one of my special "angels". He is so thorough, compassionate, kind, considerate, and gentle. I hold other doctors to his high standard. He doesn't give up and continues to try all possibilities. I get great pleasure in referring him to others as I know he will do everything possible to relieve their pain. A special person and truly what a doctor epitomizes."
"I walked into HSS and the waiting area was very nice and comfortable. My doctor, Dr. Andrew Elliott was great and my foot has healed wonderfully. I am so pleased with the whole experience. "
"WOW! A common question following surgery from friends and loved ones is, "How are you feeling?" It is very simple, Wow! After an exhaustive search for the right Doctor, I am happy to report that the wait was worth it. Dr. Matthew Cunningham is second to none. Dr. Cunningham's diagnosis was perfect. He spent quality time with me, answered all the questions I had. What impressed me the most was his calm and comforting demeanor. "
"After being treated by Dr. Moley, a Physiatrist, I have been without pain for a few years now--no surgery needed. "
