"In the winter of 2012 I suffered a fracture in the navicular bone of my left foot. Coming from an active lifestyle characterized by explosive and aggressive movements, I have experienced many broken bones. My surgeon proposed a multilayered plan of action that would attack the problem from both the mechanical and biological ends, including a titanium screw implant, bone marrow transplant, and stem cell transplant aimed at pulling the separated bone together and regenerating damaged tissue."

"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."
