After several years of escalating pain and disability in my right arm, along with various unsuccessful treatments, I made the major decision to submit to shoulder replacement surgery. I agreed to do so with the caveat that HSS would be the hospital and one of its associated surgeons would treat me.
I arrived in New York in time for all the preliminaries and from the beginning was pleased with the care and attention I received. The two days spent in the hospital were also made easier with care and attention given me. I was able to return to my Florida home 10 days post surgery. Three months of physical therapy (three times a week), completed my recovery and my arm is working beautifully now. By the way, two weeks after the surgery, I celebrated my 80th birthday!
