I am an active and athletic 50-something. A combination of physical work and golf led to increasing pain and limitations in my right shoulder.
Of course I looked to HSS for care. First, Dr. Daphne Scott (a superb non-surgical primary sports medicine physician) guided me through conservative treatment but the excellent imaging at HSS revealed rotator cuff surgery was inevitable.
I dreaded the prospect, considered the many outstanding shoulder surgeons at HSS, and met with Dr. Sam Taylor — the Harvard-educated NY Giants team physician. His reputation was stellar, and matched by compassion, empathy, and focus on my personal concerns and ambitions.
Surgery at HSS in Stamford, CT was a breeze, and convenient to my home to which I returned only hours later.
That was six months ago. My recovery has exceeded expectations in every way. Pain is gone. Full range of motion and good sleep are back.
I recommend HSS, Dr. Scott, Dr. Taylor and their teams with enthusiasm and gratitude!
