" Surgery was a life changing experience. Instead of being relegated to a life of walking with assistance or worse, I now walk with ease completing tasks which were once seemed daunting."
"I got very lucky when I got the name of Dr. S Robert Rozbruch, who did an ankle distraction. I was in a fixator for 3 months (not pleasant, but certainly manageable) and when it was removed, the bone on bone was gone and cartilage had regenerated. "
"I saw Dr. Rozbruch at HSS. I realized he might be the answer to my problem and we scheduled the completely non-invasive procedure - left ankle distraction arthroplasty. Six months later I was walking around London not feeling any ankle joint pain. Delusional ideas of auditioning for the Sadler Wells Ballet did drift through my subconscious. Forgive me. In seven years I've not felt the old ankle joint."
" I’d like to report that leg lengthening is a wonderful thing. Not to say it’s a wonderful thing to need, but truly it is blessing that a leg discrepancy can be corrected. Dr. Rozbruch performed the surgery at Hospital for Special Surgery in New York to lengthen my son’s femur. I highly recommend this doctor and hospital, and the hospital staff are fantastic!"
"For the first time in my life I have both legs the same length, I no longer wear a lift and I don’t walk with a limp. I feel great, I was back playing golf seven months after surgery and I resumed skiing this January without a specially fitted ski boot. "
"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."
"Hi Dr. Rozbruch, I Can't thank you enough! The Min and Max are insignificant and my right leg and left leg are within 1 percent which is well under the standard normal difference. As a cyclist I thought you would appreciate this, and as you being my Orthopedic Surgeon I can't tell you how much this old guy appreciates you! "
"It was August 13, 2005 and what a perfect day it was to play soccer. I remember everything about that day. During my first game of the tournament; my teammate passed me a through ball, I ran onto it, and for some reason I still don’t understand I slid to get the ball, and as I did the other teams keeper came out to get the ball, and we collided. Here I was 65 pounds soaking wet, going up against someone who was twice my size, so you can bet the outcome wasn’t very good."
"I was an ardent yoga practitioner for many years and avid hiker until black ice brought me down. Not in an ashram or on a mountain but right on Fifth Avenue and 13th St. I realized what had happened -- a broken kneecap -- and that I couldn’t get up. I once thought I would never cross the street without crutches again, but now I’m back on the mountain!"
