"I'm an avid cyclist, skier, and hiker and at age 61 I broke my wrist mountain biking in Boulder, CO. It was an awful break with an equally horrible second opinion telling me I didn't require surgery. I was lucky enough to get an appointment with Dr. Lee in NYC for a consult. He immediately diagnosed my wrist as improper bone healing, ligament damage, deformation and suggested surgery either back in Colorado or with him. I realized rather quickly that there was only one doctor I would trust to fix me and that was Dr. Lee."

"Hospital For Special Surgery (HSS) was the very "BEST" of all hospitals I have been treated in during the past 80 years. The orientation for my hip replacement for all levels of the processes removed all concerns and resulted in my positive attitude going into the operation. Knowing I was in the best hands with Dr. Chitanjan Ranawat it could not have been better - a total success."

" 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."
