"Dr. Cunningham has given me a new lease on life. I will always be so grateful for the amazing care, professionalism and unheard of empathy that this brilliant Dr. Cunningham has given to me. "
"After several consultations with specialty surgeons it was determined that the only solution to relieve my excruciating lower back pain was surgery. I spoke with fellow Ceramic Artists who had suffered from similar back problems and the unanimous, overwhelming recommendation was The Hospital for Special Surgery."
"When I arrived in NY at HSS for the first time, I immediately realized I found an amazing, warm environment with caring, intelligent professionals who could possible advise me to make the right decision for my future. Dr. Cunningham, I have never met such a warm, compassionate, caring, confident, detail oriented doctor as yourself. You have such an incredible bed side manner and such an amazing way of talking with your patients about the procedures that will occur which definitely eased my mind and lessened my fear. Thank you again for the exceptional care I received the second time around at HSS. You have gone above and beyond protocol to ensure quality care."
"Sometimes, if we are lucky in life, we cross paths with people who change our lives forever! For me, those people are Dr. Matthew Cunningham and Dr. James Wyss. I went to see Dr. Cunningham after two years of going from doctor to doctor, all in vain. I am a retired physical education teacher with a chronically bad back and many disc problems."
"When talking about Dr. Cunningham, words fall short for describing such an amazing surgeon. He spent so much time with my husband & myself explaining why I was in so much pain & what needed to be done to correct the problem. He made me confident in my decision to have the surgery."
"I could not have asked for a more sensitive and patient doctor to go through my symptoms, MRI, and options. I NEVER felt the least bit rushed during the office visit, which is rare in NYC, and he made it clear the surgery was, at this point, my decision."
"My own personal miracle corrected my serious spinal and scoliosis in a single operation and gave me back a quality of life, which I didn't think possible at my age."
"I could not remember ever feeling this way. What a difference! Superwoman. "
