"Dr Fragomen is a highly skilled, compassionate doctor. He could have turned me away but he didn't! He is the best!"
"This video is me finishing a 5 mile walk on New Year's Day, 2015 after total right knee replacement 8 months earlier. I was a runner for 30 years, competing in the NYC Marathon and multiple other races. My new passions are walking, biking, hiking, golf, and swimming. Thanks to the HSS and Dr. Geoffrey Westrich and his team, including Dr. Heather Struhl and Denise Palacios, for making my surgery experience both very successful and positive!"
"I had a total knee replacement in September, 2010. Prior to surgery I was in continual pain, and unable to lead an active life. I couldn't climb stairs bilaterally; couldn't walk a full city block without resting; couldn't get a good night's sleep. The surgery was successful beyond my wildest dreams. By the third day home I had discarded the walker for a cane, and within three weeks I was only using the cane to summon a cab. Integral to this success was not only the skill of the surgeon and the nursing and therapy care, but also the pain management team."
"After several consultations with specialty surgeons it was determined that the only solution to relieve my excruciating lower back pain was surgery. I spoke with fellow Ceramic Artists who had suffered from similar back problems and the unanimous, overwhelming recommendation was The Hospital for Special Surgery."
"Dr. Wyss is amazing! After more than 6 months of an agonizing condition which injured my hip and Sacroilliac Joint, Dr. Wyss was the first doctor to identify the source of all my pain and medical problems."
"At HSS, Dr. Nestor suggested a bilateral total hip replacement. It was the best thing I ever did. I got it over with in one surgery."
"Here I am, 5 months after my second total knee replacement and I am able to walk 2 miles, play golf and ride a bike. How great is that! "
