"My right hip was replaced by Dr. Sculco, MD in June of 2003, at HSS. Prior to my hip replacement, I had difficulty walking. I walked with a limp. After the surgery, I went straight home. I never went to a rehab. I did rehab. at home. Now I walk without a limp, and have no pain. My right leg was 11/2 inch shorter than the left leg. Dr. Sculco, MD has lengthened my right leg by 11/2 inch. Now I walk without a limp, and have no pain whatsoever."
"We have been blessed with four HSS doctors. Two years ago our son had a devastating knee injury that carried a high rate of disability. In addition, he developed something called compartment syndrome, which carried a high rate of amputation. Our home-town surgeon had only seen three such injuries in his entire career. He told us our son would be disabled and faced developing early arthritis. As our son remained in ICU, we were warned of his poor prognosis. Then, a miracle happened."
"My son Vincent was always a very competitive soccer player, and about 7 yrs old he started complaining of ankle pain. I researched high and low and I was not going to let my son be crippled and in pain . I found Dr Scher at the Hospital for Special Surgery and he worked wonders on my son! He recommended surgery, and while I was afraid , I put my trust in Dr. Scher. Vincent was 10 when he had the first foot done. We prepared for Vincent to be in pain and off his feet for 12 weeks. To our amazement his cast came off in 2 weeks and 2 days later my son was walking!! "
