"About a year and a half ago, I was having trouble with my left knee. Feeling very frustrated I decided to turn to the Internet. I looked up “top orthopedic doctors” and found Hospital for Special Surgery and Dr. David Mayman. After reviewing my case Dr. Mayman agreed to see me."
"For the first time in my life I have both legs the same length, I no longer wear a lift and I don’t walk with a limp. I feel great, I was back playing golf seven months after surgery and I resumed skiing this January without a specially fitted ski boot. "
"Dr. Jerabek reassured me that having a hip replacement in my 30s did not mean the end of my hobbies - martial arts and adventure hiking. He was right - 4 months and 1 week after total hip replacement, I hiked 80 miles in Nepal to reach Everest Base Camp!"
"After nearly a year of hard-to-manage pain caused particularly by the lower back disc problem, the surgery relieved the pain and within four months of the surgeries, I was back to jogging in Central Park. "
"I would not be standing straight and free from my back brace if it wasn't for Dr. Boachie and all the caring personnel I came in contact with at the Hospital for Special Surgery."
"When I arrived in NY at HSS for the first time, I immediately realized I found an amazing, warm environment with caring, intelligent professionals who could possible advise me to make the right decision for my future. Dr. Cunningham, I have never met such a warm, compassionate, caring, confident, detail oriented doctor as yourself. You have such an incredible bed side manner and such an amazing way of talking with your patients about the procedures that will occur which definitely eased my mind and lessened my fear. Thank you again for the exceptional care I received the second time around at HSS. You have gone above and beyond protocol to ensure quality care."
" I got hip surgery in the end of July so it would not interfere with school. In October I swam competitively in a swim meet, only three months after the surgery. I remember going to Dr. Kelly for an appointment and he was amazed that I was able to swim competitively so quickly. I was so eager to run again. I was able to gradually start running again that following March. By May, I completed my first triathlon."
"Dr. MacGillivray is clearly very knowledgeable in his specialty. He is confident in what he diagnoses & with his prognosis. He is clear & concise with what he says. The appointments go very quickly, but if you forget to ask any questions directly to the doctor, you can always call the office & they will assist. We were also very satisfied with HSS. We needed to go there for MRI's & for 2 surgeries. It is a well-oiled machine: from the doorman to the intake personnel to the nurses to the aftercare personnel. Everyone knows their job completely."
