After running 10 marathons and doing physical work for 40 years my right hip was completely devoid of cartilage and was severely damaged. I was in constant acute pain but I put off surgery out of fear. When I finally decided to schedule the surgery, the orthopedic surgeon I had selected was retired. To my great fortune, his highly skilled and compassionate son had taken his place. I could not have been more impressed or more satisfied with Dr. Peter Sculco. His fine carpentry allowed me to climb to the very top of Mt. Guanaco in Ushuaia Patagonia with my family on Christmas Day. Thank you Dr. Sculco and HSS!!
