Sue Helston, Cornwall, United Kingdom

"28th July, 1968 was a day that changed my life. From being a fit, attractive and energetic 20 year old mum with an 8 month old baby I became an unattractive, disabled female with little hope of continuing to live a normal life. On this day, I was involved in a serious road accident that left me with a badly disfigured face, brain damage with memory loss, multiple vision, a hand that had been sewn back after being almost severed."

"I have been a patient at HSS since 1977. HSS is the only hospital I would ever consider for orthopedic care or surgery for myself, family and those I do refer. I have always been extremely satisfied with every doctor I have visited and in my case they have been numerous over the years."

Ann L. New York, NY

"I recovered from the operation quickly and easily. I am now free of back pain, able to walk without inhibition and looking forward to the moment at the end of the month when I can once again bend over and touch my toes – or, more usefully, tie my shoelaces."

Vincent Verona, NJ

"In 1998, I was diagnosed with Avascular Necrosis of the right hip. Being 36 years old at the time this was a devastating bit of news when I was told nothing could be done at that point other than a total hip replacement. I am almost 12 years post op right now and thanks to him and your fantastic hospital resumed my life as if nothing happened. I am able to do many of the same activities as I had before the surgery."
