How do you even begin to thank people who gave you the ability to walk normally again?

I will start by telling you that when I first came to HSS I was limping and bent over when walking with each step more painful then the next.

I did my research on HSS and was extremely impressed with Dr. Brian Chalmers' profile and what his patients said about him so I scheduled an appointment. As it turned out after x-rays and an exam, the diagnosis was severe osteoarthritis of my right hip. PA Dustin Quig and Dr. Chalmers explained to me that I needed a total hip replacement. They were both extremely professional, compassionate and made sure I understood everything.

On April 12,2023 I had my surgery at HSS. Since it was in the afternoon I had my first physical therapy that evening and was able to walk with a walker. I did not need any medication at all! I had exceptional nurses who, aside from giving me medication, would come in to talk with me to see how I was feeling and if I needed anything. They were so kind and helpful. The way the staff in a hospital treats you is also part of the healing process and I was lucky to have people like that.

The next morning I had more physical therapy and was cleared for discharge home. Two days after being home I walked without the aid of a cane or walker and no more limp!

I credit Dr. Chalmers' surgical expertise for this amazing outcome. I knew after my first appointment with him that he was somebody who is not only a brilliant surgeon but one who genuinely cares about his patients. Anyone on his team, including the office staff, Tiara and Erin, treat you with courtesy and kindness.

Today, May 23, 2023, I went for my post-op appointment and all has progressed amazingly! I would highly recommend Dr. Brian Chalmers and his team who I will always be thankful and grateful to!
