"I had two knee replacements, one each stay, at HSS. I was pain-free thanks to intravenous pain medication. This greatly helped my frame of mind stay positive. "
"Dr. Haas did a fantastic job, the staff at HSS, and I mean everybody I came in contact with were absolutely were terrific, I can't say enough good things about them."
"I have been a patient of HSS 3 times. Each and every time, the people of HSS show that they are truly special."
"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."
"I was extremely impressed by the excellent care I received at HSS when I had a total knee replacement in March. I will never cease to be grateful for it. "
"My experience at HSS was outstanding. I had a knee replacement 3 months ago and I am walking with no assistance and am back to work. My message to those who are in need of surgery: why settle for less when you can get the very very best?"
"I am 2 weeks post and am already walking without a cane. I know that the post op rehab therapy is key to my continued recovery. "
"When the pain in my left knee got so bad that it started to hinder my pursuit of International Folk Dancing, I knew it was time for me to take action. I knew about the work done at Hospital for Special Surgery. My friend recommended Dr. Rozbruch, the surgeon who replaced her both knees."
"I made the appointment, Dr. Warren checked out my knee and said, "Yes I can do the surgery." I then made the appointment for surgery. "
"I was using a cane and I was certainly worried about my nursing career. I had a knee replacement with Dr. Haas last June and I've been walking, working, and very grateful."
