So glad I chose Dr. Boettner and HSS for my total knee replacement. An avid skier, usually 60+ days on the snow each season, I was concerned about my ability to continue that lifestyle post-operatively. My recovery after surgery in April of 2014 progressed rapidly. Within 8 weeks I resumed biking, vigorous workouts, aqua aerobics and ballroom dance. By November, I was more than ready to hit the slopes. My winter was great. Skied longer and stronger with no brace and no pain. Thanks to my skilled and caring surgeon and the excellent staff at HSS I am definitely "back in the game".
