I entered Hospital for Special Surgery in tremendous pain and barely able to walk. I needed a total hip replacement. I was most fortunate to have Dr. Mark Figgie a wonderful surgeon operate on me. As soon the anesthesia wore off I realized that my pain was gone. By the next morning I was able to walk the whole floor of the hospital, and on the fourth day I went home, an extremely happy patient. The staff at Hospital for Special Surgery was so very caring and helpful. There was always a smile and much encouragement from everyone. Thank you Hospital for Special Surgery and Dr. Figgie for restoring my happy, active life. It is truly a miracle.
