"As far as the success of my surgery, the excruciating pain down my left leg amazingly diminished on the first day post surgery. Without any doubt Dr. Sandhu is a “Top Surgeon” in a world class hospital."
"Dr. Michael Parks performed a total knee replacement on 2/18/10. I cannot thank Dr. Parks enough for his skill and kindness. If everything in life goes as smoothly for me as this surgery, I'll be happy. "
"I had microdiscectomy performed by HSS. I was impressed by how professional and personable the surgical team was before and after the surgery."
"My game is not a sport. It's the game of life. I have an autoimmune disease called myositis. My treatment includes oral prednisone and monthly infusions of IVIG. When I first got sick almost 20 years ago I was 44. I was an elementary school teacher but had to leave due to extreme weakness in my arms and legs. I could barely walk or bathe myself. I refused to just give in to the disease and view my life as over. "
"I have and will still recommend HSS to anyone i meet that needs surgery and is scared. I do this because I feel that the Hospital for Special Surgery is the most sophisticated, intelligent, professional, caring, personalized, environment that I have ever been in. Thank you Dr. Ranawat, Rachael, James, Ana, Renee and everyone at the hospital, for giving me use of my right leg again, and being able to run!"
"I go down stairs, surf, ride skateboard, all of them without pain. For giving me back all my mobility without pain, I will be eternally grateful to Dr. Rozbruch. "
"At a dance I tripped on a chair, fell on my left side, and my left femur separated from my hip. Being in much pain, the local fire department took me to a nearby hospital in Long Island where I was operated on the next day for a partial hip replacement. Everything was going great but after five weeks I developed a staph infection that put me back in the hospital for 25 days. The prosthesis was removed, I was on intravenous antibiotics for eight weeks and spent the next eight months in a wheelchair."
"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."
