Greetings all,

I was a lifelong runner and athlete. I developed severe arthritis in my right knee as well as numerous other problems including multiple bone spurs, a number of torn meniscus, a Baker's cyst and compete stiffness in my right knee. I tried numerous remedies from two different knee doctors, including gel injections and extensive PT, but never could find relief. It had gotten so bad that I was unable to walk up and down stairs or get in and out of my car without severe pain and difficulty. I had no quality of life and gained weight as a result of not having an exercise program I could manage with my knee. I was referred to Dr. Greg DiFelice at HSS and simply stated it was one of the best decisions of my life. He, his team and the staff of HSS could not have been more professional and incredible in every aspect from diagnoses, explaining options, surgery, post-surgery care and follow-up. Dr. DiFelice scoped my knee and removed numerous bone spurs. I am now 95% pain free, can freely walk up and down stairs again and have started an exercise program of biking and using an elliptical trainer, which were impossible options before surgery. My only regret is I didn't know about him a year earlier as he is an amazing surgeon. He has again allowed me to get my day to day life back. I highly recommend him and HSS to anyone!
