" I called Dr. Maymen and scheduled an appointment at which time I was told I needed a TKR. The procedure was done on the 25th of March 2010 and was an absolute success."
"Whenever I talk to someone who needs to get a knee or hip replaced I give them Dr. Padgett's name and number."
"Milling around around in crowds peering at ancient artifacts doesn't make for a stunning image to illustrate my first steps back to the life I love, but keep in mind that 2-1/2 hours standing on hard museum floors is a good test of knee recovery."
"When I arrived in NY at HSS for the first time, I immediately realized I found an amazing, warm environment with caring, intelligent professionals who could possible advise me to make the right decision for my future. Dr. Cunningham, I have never met such a warm, compassionate, caring, confident, detail oriented doctor as yourself. You have such an incredible bed side manner and such an amazing way of talking with your patients about the procedures that will occur which definitely eased my mind and lessened my fear. Thank you again for the exceptional care I received the second time around at HSS. You have gone above and beyond protocol to ensure quality care."
"Eight years ago I went in for surgery up here in Dutchess county only to awaken and find that it was not done because the surgeon thought I was too heavy for the table. I then contacted Dr. Maynard who had a lot of compassion for me and scheduled the surgery at HSS. He ended up replacing my entire hip and added 4 inches to my leg bone as over the years it wore down rubbing in the hip joint."
"After two years of severe back pain, I sought out Dr. Wyss for some pain relief. He had great bedside manner and unlike other doctors I had met with, he diagnosed the exact cause of my pain and explained the measures I should take. When the day of the first procedure came, he ensured that it went flawlessly. During the procedure, he talked through every step and it. It was successful, and he followed up immediately."
"Sometimes, if we are lucky in life, we cross paths with people who change our lives forever! For me, those people are Dr. Matthew Cunningham and Dr. James Wyss. I went to see Dr. Cunningham after two years of going from doctor to doctor, all in vain. I am a retired physical education teacher with a chronically bad back and many disc problems."
"Everything about the HSS experience was perfect, from the quality of the care, to the professionalism and kindness of the entire staff, to the precise and accurate description of the process from every standpoint (pre-op, surgery, recovery, etc.). Dr. Allen is simply the best, and the entire team was no less than superb. I felt calm and confident as I walked into HSS on the day of my surgery and stress-free as I was wheeled out afterwards."
