"I have always been very active in my youth and later years, still skating and skiing, and working out into my late 50's. Having lived in Manhattan, I loved to walk. In May, 2011, I met with Dr. Maynard regarding chronic pain in my right hip. He advised that I needed hip replacement. Dr. Maynard's knowledge and demeanor made me feel confident that he would get me through the joint replacement surgery safely."
"He told me that in 6 months I would be happy I had it done. Not so! I was happy in 6 weeks and was so scared to have it done but it was the best thing I ever did."
"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 was cared for with kindness, compassion, humor. The nurses were ALWAYS available, explaining every thing they were doing and again answering all my questions and giving me encouragement. "
"While I am still on the mend I am glad I selected Dr. Cammisa out of the five doctors I saw elsewhere. "
"In June 2013, I was in an exercise class when I had a sudden pain in my left hip. At first, I thought I had pulled a muscle in my groin. After I realized I had a more serious problem, I looked up the best hip doctors in New York City and found Dr. Buly (and HSS). Dr. Buly immediately diagnosed me with torn labrums and femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) in both hips. At first, I thought I might never run again. I was wrong. "
"I would like to express my gratitude to Dr. Mayman, his team and Hospital for Special Surgery for providing the best medical and nursing care I ever had. I am back at work seeing a full schedule of patients, pain free with 121 degrees of flexion in the left knee. The Oxinium knee changed my life."
