When cortisone injections failed to relieve the pain in my worn out right shoulder, I visited Dr. Gulotta. He described the procedure, risks and probable outcome and inspired total confidence. My fears of horrible pain from the operation were completely unfounded. Thanks to a nerve block used on my shoulder during the operation there was no pain at all for the first day or two and then very little after that. It's now going on eight weeks post surgery and I'm able to do things with my shoulder that I could not do for the last several years. Dr. Gulotta showed me my x-ray at the first post op visit. I saw my new shoulder and I remember telling my wife how beautiful I thought it was! He did a wonderful job-I couldn't be happier with the outcome.
After having my left knee replaced by Dr. Parks on April 1, 2014, my quality of life improved so greatly that I decided to have the right replaced as well. Dr. Parks said that he would give me a nice 'Matching Set" and on Feb 24, 2015 he did just that. I was discharged Feb 26-only 2 days in the hospital for a total knee replacement-remarkable. I'm still amazed by the speed and thoroughness of my recovery. My knees are totally pain free. I have much more energy and feel like a new person. I just can't thank Dr. Parks and the entire staff of HSS enough.
