"I have been a patient at HSS since 1977. HSS is the only hospital I would ever consider for orthopedic care or surgery for myself, family and those I do refer. I have always been extremely satisfied with every doctor I have visited and in my case they have been numerous over the years."
"I had my procedure on March 3rd, 2014 and went back to very mild weight lifting after about 6 weeks and then returned to a modified training schedule after 12 weeks. I then continued to train while "listening to my body" and returned to full strength in about 5 or 6 months. Again, paying careful attention to technique and my body. I am extremely grateful to be able to continue to train and expect to go back to competing in the very near future."
"The large glomus tumor was removed and for the first time in years I was free of its horrible pain. It has been seven weeks since the surgery and my thumb is returning to normal."
"I was hit by a car while joyriding on my favorite Razor scooter. After the accident, doctors said I would never walk again. Without Dr. Wellman's bravery, I wouldn't be here today. "
"The information and classes before the surgery, and the care and help you receive after the surgery, are what make HSS so special. I know that it sped up my recovery, and enabled me to return to playing tennis and hiking, the two things I like best. If you want to maintain your quality of life there is only one choice for hip replacement, HSS. I truly believe this."
"I was exercising in accordance to my department's policy and while performing a bench press, I felt and heard a popping sensation in my left shoulder followed by immense pain and swelling. I knew that something wasn't right. I went to see Dr. Answorth Allen, a specialist in shoulder repair. He diagnosed my shoulder with a torn rotator cuff that required surgery."
"Dr. Maalouf is an excellent physician and one of the most compassionate individuals I have encountered at HSS. I was an international patient and met Dr. Maalouf prior to my surgery. "
"My experience at HSS was outstanding. I had a knee replacement 3 months ago and I am walking with no assistance and am back to work. My message to those who are in need of surgery: why settle for less when you can get the very very best?"
"Dr. Jerabek's skill and HSS personnel's experience, talent and attention made this traumatic experience palatable with an excellent outcome...."
"I'm just an "average joe" who had a relatively active lifestyle until osteoarthritis got the best of my hips. It took a lot of convincing before I was ready to accept that I needed surgical intervention to alleviate my worsening hip pain."
