"I was an ardent yoga practitioner for many years and avid hiker until black ice brought me down. Not in an ashram or on a mountain but right on Fifth Avenue and 13th St. I realized what had happened -- a broken kneecap -- and that I couldn’t get up. I once thought I would never cross the street without crutches again, but now I’m back on the mountain!"
"My right hip was replaced by Dr. Sculco, MD in June of 2003, at HSS. Prior to my hip replacement, I had difficulty walking. I walked with a limp. After the surgery, I went straight home. I never went to a rehab. I did rehab. at home. Now I walk without a limp, and have no pain. My right leg was 11/2 inch shorter than the left leg. Dr. Sculco, MD has lengthened my right leg by 11/2 inch. Now I walk without a limp, and have no pain whatsoever."
"First of all, I want to thanks all the professional staff at HSS for the wonderful care I received at the hospital. From the moment I walked through the door, I knew I was in the right place. I suffered for 3 years with bone on bone arthritis. I learned of HSS when I googled on my tablet best place in USA for knee replacement. I called Ann and got an appointment with Dr. Windsor. Thanks to them. I am out of a wheelchair and able to walk and be active again. Thanks and God Bless you all."
"We have been blessed with four HSS doctors. Two years ago our son had a devastating knee injury that carried a high rate of disability. In addition, he developed something called compartment syndrome, which carried a high rate of amputation. Our home-town surgeon had only seen three such injuries in his entire career. He told us our son would be disabled and faced developing early arthritis. As our son remained in ICU, we were warned of his poor prognosis. Then, a miracle happened."
