"Dr. Kelly and his team were amazing, the surgery went really well and recovery was very straight forward. I am based in Florida but I didn't feel the distance, any queries I had were quickly answered and I felt I got all the support I needed. I was back running at 4 months post op, back at soccer at 7 months and completed my first ever half marathon just under one year post op. I know that I made the right choice with Dr. Kelly and HSS."
"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."
" Surgery was a life changing experience. Instead of being relegated to a life of walking with assistance or worse, I now walk with ease completing tasks which were once seemed daunting."
" 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. Darren Lebl is an amazing and talented surgeon. I was a runner and a few years ago started getting these awful headaches and neck aches. I was always told, either I had a sinus infection or was under too much stress. They'd pass but not after taking Aleve and not running for a few days. I'd run through the discomfort and pain as much as possible. Back in September of 2013 I had an awful headache, by far the worst I had experienced."
"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 have a history of being careless and prone to injuries. This resulted in 3 knee injuries in the past 5 years, two ACLs and a meniscus repair."
