"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. "
"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. "
"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 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."
"When the arthritis in my knees finally stopped me from travelling, playing golf, and enjoying life I decided to take action. I called HSS and was referred to Dr. Mayman for a minimally invasive knee replacement. "
"I am so amazed by Dr. Vad's techniques and personable manner, I will use him forever! Thank you Dr. Vad and The HSS for being the best of the BEST of the BEST!"
"On November 9, 2011 I had a total knee replacement. Dr. Steven Haas is not only an excellent surgeon, he is the Michelangelo of knee surgery. I cannot thank Dr. Haas and his entire staff enough, plus the staff at HSS. I was cared for with kindness and compassion. Now, five months later, the results have been wonderful. Thank you."
