Words cannot describe the depth of my gratitude to Dr. Alejandro Gonzalez Della Valle & his team, Dr. William Briner, and the many, many professionals at HSS. Beginning with my first visit, I was impressed by the professionalism, friendliness, and helpfulness of everyone I interacted with there, every single time I had an appointment, or made a phone call. They go the extra mile, truly care, and value their patients.
Dr. Briner (Primary Care & Sports Medicine) provided expert guidance and offered treatment options to help manage the pain and increase my flexibility in the year prior to my hip replacement. He is easygoing and thoroughly explains everything. Dr. Briner improved the quality of my daily life as much as humanly possible until surgery was the only remaining option.
Dr. Gonzalez Della Valle is a brilliant surgeon, and a kind, caring person. Throughout the process, from my first appointment to my one year follow up visit, Dr. Gonzalez Della Valle has been a calming presence in what is a stressful situation. I came to him in a lot of pain, with significantly reduced mobility, which affected every area of my daily life. Thanks to him and his spectacular team, I was up and walking right after surgery, and I have healed beautifully. I can work, socialize, confidently make plans, practice yoga, go the gym and go for walks, all thanks to Dr. Gonzalez Della Valle. He not only restored my mobility, he gave me my smile back, and for that I am eternally grateful.
If you struggle with pain and/or reduced mobility and want to get your smile back, go to HSS. It is the only place you should be.
