My name is Jake and I am a soccer goalkeeper, playing for both a high-level club team and my high school team. I came to HSS in the winter of 2020 to be assessed for pain I was having in my hip/groin/lower back area. After seeing multiple orthopedic doctors over the past year, I was referred to Dr. Ranawat given his expertise in hip preservation. After performing imaging and tests, Dr. Ranawat determined I had a hip impingement and likely labral tears associated with it. We decided to get surgery in December of 2020 to address the issue, taking into account the 4-6 month recovery would mean I might only miss a portion of the spring club soccer season. After months of intense PT with Ji-Nee Dalton and Curtis Wu at HSS Physical Therapy in Paramus, I was feeling great, and on April 21 I was cleared to begin playing again by Dr. Ranawat. I have felt great after practices and games and have been able to do everything I was able to do before my surgery. The HSS team is unbelievable, and I just want to say thank you for everything!
