It was a beautiful fall day and I went for my usual jog in Central Park. Two days later i began to feel incredible pain in my left groin. After several doctor appointments, and trying physical therapy and chiropractic therapy, i came to realize that nothing was working and the pain was getting worse. Although in disbelief i accepted that i needed hip replacement surgery. I was introduced to Dr. Mayman through a dear friend who had hip replacement surgery just 9 months earlier with Dr. Mayman. Her amazing experience of two days in the hospital, no pain after surgery, and out and about town just two weeks after surgery let me know I must see Dr. Mayman. From the warm welcome and comfortable visit I had with Brian Michaels (PA) to my meeting with Dr. Mayman, there was no turning back. I made the appointment for surgery before leaving the office. I am now 5 months out from surgery and life has been back to normal for some time now. I walk and take stairs without a thought. I have only good memories from this experience and the great care I received from HSS nurses and the entire team that works with Dr. Mayman.
