I had fallen 4 years ago and complained of shooting pain down calf of my leg. I went to 4 different orthopedic specialists over the next 3 years with all different outcomes. Finally, I could not stand the pain and lack of quality of life (I teach Kindergarten). I researched HSS and found Dr. Mayman. I had my right leg replaced June 2011 and my left one January 2012. On my way to full recovery and running around after my kids. I was treated as a queen each surgery with care and compassion from EVERYONE on the staff. I am very nervous and almost backed out of second surgery on the day of surgery, but with care and kindness, I was able to complete the procedure. I tell all I meet about HSS, the doctors, the staff and the care. It is the best hospital I have ever been in for surgery. Thank you!
