"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."
"I had fallen 4 years ago and complained of shooting pain down calf of my leg. I went to 4 different orthopedic specialists over the next 3 years with all different outcomes. Finally, I could not stand the pain and lack of quality of life (I teach Kindergarten). I researched HSS and found Dr. Mayman."
"After 6 weeks I could hardly tell which hip was replaced. I'm walking straighter than I have in many years. I feel great and I'm grateful to Dr. Seth Jerabek and the wonderful team at HSS!"
