"Here I am, 5 months after my second total knee replacement and I am able to walk 2 miles, play golf and ride a bike. How great is that! "
"I now have pain-free flexibility and movement--to get in and out of a car, play with my granddaughter, sit in a movie theater and so on. "
"To me, it was miracle surgery because I almost lost my hope that I will be able to walk again. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Dr. Della Valle and HSS."
"After having had a right hip replacement in Long Island that went awry and after having been on Oxycontin for 14 months with no help from my surgeon, I finally went to see Dr. Della Valle at HSS. He diagnosed my condition in about 2 minutes and I had the surgery August 31, 2011. "
"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."
