I was in pain for a few years and saw several orthopedic doctors. When I found out that I needed a hip replacement as treatment for my pain, I chose Dr. Gregory DiFelice at the Hospital for Special Surgery. Throughout the whole process, I was extremely pleased with the level of care and the personal attention that I received from the HSS staff. Dr. DiFelice met with me several times before the operation as well as follow-up visits. I had many questions pre and post surgery and he always took time to sit and talk with my family and me. Also, he was very prompt with returning my calls regarding my rehab questions. Because of Dr. DiFelice, my hip replacement had an excellent outcome. Now I am pain free and back to enjoying my usual daily activities, such as fishing and biking. I am very thankful for Dr. DiFelice and the staff at HSS.
