"This video is me finishing a 5 mile walk on New Year's Day, 2015 after total right knee replacement 8 months earlier. I was a runner for 30 years, competing in the NYC Marathon and multiple other races. My new passions are walking, biking, hiking, golf, and swimming. Thanks to the HSS and Dr. Geoffrey Westrich and his team, including Dr. Heather Struhl and Denise Palacios, for making my surgery experience both very successful and positive!"
"This commendation goes to the team effort of three specific individuals that made it possible for me to continue to walk and live a normal unrestricted life. It started with the keen skills of Dr. Brian Halpern who instantly recognized that my sudden onset of shin splints was a serious lower back problem that had developed. I was training at 65 to take my first vacation in years to go climbing in the Alps."
