"After a delicate three hour surgery my fingers and hand are back to normal. I can't say enough good things about the great care I received at HSS from not only the wonderful doctors but also the nurses, aides, the pre surgical staff and physical therapists who helped me on my road to recovery and a pain free life."

"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. "

"Eight years ago I went in for surgery up here in Dutchess county only to awaken and find that it was not done because the surgeon thought I was too heavy for the table. I then contacted Dr. Maynard who had a lot of compassion for me and scheduled the surgery at HSS. He ended up replacing my entire hip and added 4 inches to my leg bone as over the years it wore down rubbing in the hip joint."

"A few years ago I started seeing Dr James. Wyss for constant sciatic pain. He did several epidurals and I did some PT. I was very nervous about the epidurals but Dr. Wyss is a master, there was little to no discomfort. Unfortunately, the pain remained. Dr Wyss recommended I see Dr. Matthew Cunningham. Dr. Cunningham explained why a fusion was what I needed and we scheduled the surgery. I asked Dr. Cunningham when I could plan a big trip and he recommended one year post op."
