After many years of suffering from arthritis, I made the decision to have a total knee replacement. I can't tell you how pleased I am with the entire experience! From the moment I arrived at HSS and for weeks following the surgery, I was treated like royalty. Everything was so organized and made for an effortless recovery. The surgeon was a magician- pain-free! The staff was delightful - didn't want to leave the hospital as I was enjoying everyone. And when I got home two days after the surgery, I had visiting nurses and therapists come to my home and spoil me. It was an amazing experience and it has improved my quality of life tenfold. I was thinking of having the other knee done and I don't even need it!
