"Before surgery, I could not do any physical activity involving my hip. At the time I was a swimmer. Every day after practice, my teammates would have to help me out of the pool because of the pain. Even outside of practice, my hip would affect every aspect of my life. My experience at Hospital for Special Surgery was nothing but positive. Although recovery was difficult, the staff was very friendly and concerned about making the process as smooth and pain free as they possibly could. Since the surgery, my hip has become completely pain free and I am more active than ever!"

"My experience was great starting with Dr. Boachie and his wonderful office staff (Lindy, Tom, Theresa and Cynthia). They were always helpful with any of my questions or concerns and would always calm my fears. The wonderful care continued at HSS. The day of surgery - that care continued - I was treated so well I couldn't believe how calm I was. My anesthesiologist Dr. Michael Urban was wonderful and checked on me days after to monitor my pain."

"By the time I saw Dr. Figgie, my knees were in bad shape. It was no longer enjoyable to go on the trips we loved so much. Dr. Figgie and HSS gave me my life back, and I thank you."

"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."
