"This commendation goes to the team effort of three specific individuals that made it possible for me to continue to walk and live a normal unrestricted life. It started with the keen skills of Dr. Brian Halpern who instantly recognized that my sudden onset of shin splints was a serious lower back problem that had developed. I was training at 65 to take my first vacation in years to go climbing in the Alps."
"About three years ago, my shoulder started dislocating when using it. I always wanted to get the surgery, but was scared. It wasn't half as bad as I thought I was gonna be and little did I know I was surfing in 2 months."
"HSS is the best. I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone. My surgeon Dr. Ranawat has had a life transforming effect on me and my family."
"I saw Dr. Rozbruch at HSS. I realized he might be the answer to my problem and we scheduled the completely non-invasive procedure - left ankle distraction arthroplasty. Six months later I was walking around London not feeling any ankle joint pain. Delusional ideas of auditioning for the Sadler Wells Ballet did drift through my subconscious. Forgive me. In seven years I've not felt the old ankle joint."
"In the winter of 2012 I suffered a fracture in the navicular bone of my left foot. Coming from an active lifestyle characterized by explosive and aggressive movements, I have experienced many broken bones. Dr. Kennedy proposed a multilayered plan of action that would attack the problem from both the mechanical and biological ends, including a titanium screw implant, bone marrow transplant, and stem cell transplant aimed at pulling the separated bone together and regenerating damaged tissue."
"After 2 months of intensive physical rehabilitation, I 'graduated' to strength and fitness training and am still 'pumping iron' and enjoying it! "
" I’d like to report that leg lengthening is a wonderful thing. Not to say it’s a wonderful thing to need, but truly it is blessing that a leg discrepancy can be corrected. Dr. Rozbruch performed the surgery at Hospital for Special Surgery in New York to lengthen my son’s femur. I highly recommend this doctor and hospital, and the hospital staff are fantastic!"
"I would recommend Dr. Ranawat and the HSS to anyone. They are both excellent. And that's my story."
