"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."
"I had been in pain for over 10 years with my knees and constantly on pain medication. I am a musician - performing for events on keyboard and vocals, standing at the keyboard leading my band. At the end of every performance I was in terrible pain. When I got home each evening I was limping and could not sleep without pain killers."
"I am 56 and underwent bi-lateral hip resurfacing at HSS by Dr. Su on March 4, 2014. Surgery time was an amazing 3.5 hours. In addition to osteoarthritis in both hips, I had significant deformity to my left femoral head and socket and leg shortening with affected the alignment of my entire pelvic region. Dr Su put it this way to me "you were a challenging case"."
