"I had been in pain for over 10 years with my knees and constantly on pain medication. I am a musician - performing for events on keyboard and vocals, standing at the keyboard leading my band. At the end of every performance I was in terrible pain. When I got home each evening I was limping and could not sleep without pain killers."
"I am 56 and underwent bi-lateral hip resurfacing at HSS by Dr. Su on March 4, 2014. Surgery time was an amazing 3.5 hours. In addition to osteoarthritis in both hips, I had significant deformity to my left femoral head and socket and leg shortening with affected the alignment of my entire pelvic region. Dr Su put it this way to me "you were a challenging case"."
" Leading up to my surgery in January 2014, my riding had been compromised by increasing hip pain and weakness. It became difficult to dismount after riding and increasingly precarious to start off. I had to give up riding any difficult horses all together. I was weak and in pain and unable to cope with any fractious behavior. Three months after surgery I was riding again, and six months later I was in the show ring again. Now, a year later, I feel stronger and more secure than ever."
"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!"
"My friend recommend me to Dr. Buly at HSS and I went to see him in October and I found out I have hip dysplasia and severe osteoarthritis in my right hip. I was so impressed with how much time Dr. Buly took with me and explained everything in detail to me and what my options were. "
