"At age 18, I had a double hip procedure performed in order to repair labral tears and enable me to have more motion within my hip joints. I never thought I would be able to dance again. I am now 20 years old, and a member of my college dance team, part of two dance companies, and pain free- I could not be happier!"

"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."
