"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."

"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!"

"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. "
