"My husband Mark had a terrible accident. Dr. Cunningham with his knowledge and expertise had performed surgery on Mark, placing rods, screws and a cage in his spine. We were also always able to ask questions and received answers immediately, never feeling like we were bothering them. Tina, his administrative assistant, was exceptional, always going above & beyond for the patients, as well as Cynthia, his nursing assistant. They always made us feel so important each and every visit."

"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."

"I had a total knee replacement in September, 2010. Prior to surgery I was in continual pain, and unable to lead an active life. I couldn't climb stairs bilaterally; couldn't walk a full city block without resting; couldn't get a good night's sleep. The surgery was successful beyond my wildest dreams. By the third day home I had discarded the walker for a cane, and within three weeks I was only using the cane to summon a cab. Integral to this success was not only the skill of the surgeon and the nursing and therapy care, but also the pain management team."

"In March of 2011, I went to HSS and met Dr. Mathias Bostrom, who in my opinion, created a miracle when he operated on my right knee. I am now able to walk and stand on my leg without pain like before. I will always be indebted to him and have him in my prayers."

"I had my left hip revised in November, and my right hip revised for a different reason in February. Both were complicated procedures that most orthopedic surgeons could not have done. Dr. Mathias Bostrom did both surgeries and both were extremely successful (life changing for me)."

"I had been suffering with progressive spinal stenosis for several years; this initially caused pain and ultimately numbness and loss of control of my left leg. I sought help from HSS for a solution to my problem. I found a thoughtful surgical solution from Dr. Frank Cammisa. By three months I was walking half a mile, and by six months could walk all I wanted. The symptoms and disability were gone."
