I am a 66-year-old former orthopedic RN who is thrilled with the outcome of my total hip replacement (THR). My entire experience at HSS (Stamford and NYC) has been exceptional. From my first visit through my hospital stay in NYC everything ran smoothly and I found all staff members to be efficient and professional.
Dr. McLawhorn is knowledgeable, confident, never rushed and has an wonderful bedside manner. He answered every question I had in a calm, compassionate manner. Most importantly, he is an incredibly skilled orthopedic surgeon.
My posterior THR was painless with minimal swelling. My recovery was remarkable. I went from walker to cane to cane-free with no limp in 2 weeks. At 5 1/2 weeks (after my first post-op visit) I am back to my exercise routine and hiking our Vermont trails. As a nurse and a patient I highly recommend Dr. McLawhorn. Thank you Dr. McLawhorn - you are awesome!
