My story begins some 30+ years ago. I was limping around and at times could not walk and suffering with much pain in my knees. I interviewed many doctors and the only doctor that I found was at HSS. He was honest and sincere and all the staff was most professional. He recommended arthroscopic surgery and this helped for some years. After some years I was back in pain and unable to walk and function normally. After weighting to the point I could not take the pain anymore and he recommended me for bi-lateral Knee replacement.
This was the best decision I have ever made, after 3 months I was like new and my quality of life was restored to almost normal. My time in the hospital was a very good experience under the circumstances the hospital and its staff were most professional and made my stay comfortable. Over the years I have had two more knee replacements and two revisions. The replacements and revisions were done only because I lived my life to the fullest and abused and were hard on them. To date, I have had 6 visits to HSS and I would not think of going anywhere else and I would never use any other doctor than Dr. Wickiewicz. In my eyes, he is a miracle worker and my last experience with Dr. Wickiewicz and HSS was this last March and again he made me walk and returned my life back to almost normal again. (God Bless You Dr. Wickiewicz) There is no other hospital that I would even consider. I love HSS and all the dedicated staff. Thank you HSS!
