feedback about Hospital for Special Surgery
Had a very complicated hip replacement there almost 3 years ago. My life couldn’t be better. The best hospital, and the best doctors in the world. Thank you Dr. Della Valle.
I had right total knee replacement on 8/12/19. The staff was awesome. From the front desk to the admissions office, they were very friendly. Dr. Haas and his surgical team were very comforting and explained everything. I thank the anesthesiologist who checked in with me before and after the procedure. I wanted to give a special shoutout to Gladys (pre-op nurse) and Vanessa (recovery nurse). They made me feel very comfortable and special. Gladys made me feel very at ease before my surgery and Vanessa (as well as Deidre and the rest of the recovery team) made sure I was comfortable after the surgery. Amanda (the physical therapist) worked well with me and helped me to understand the rough road to recovery. My mother (who waited in the family atrium) was very impressed with the technology and friendliness of the staff as well. I would definitely recommend this hospital to anyone considering surgery.
Best place I have been. They were absolutely professional. Dr. Allen was gracious honest and provided as much support when I came with a torn acl in my left knee. The second acl in the same leg in 4 years . When they repaired my knee after my first doctor butcher it at long island college hospital. Hss took care of me in a way that made believe I could have a high quality physical life after my procedure. This year I competed in my first SPARTAN RACE.
So far I've just had to go here for imaging, an MRI and CT scan, but everything moved so smoothly, on time, and very professionally. I was so impressed. I work in the medical field and I understand what can happen to clog up movement of patients, but based on what I saw with the employees - I believe they have it down to a science. I'll be heading back a few more times and will review each of those as the saga continues.
**update - I had my surgery 4 weeks ago today and am very pleased with the results. And with the hospital and all of the RN's, care givers, physical therapy personnel and the doctors and PA's. I was under for about 6-7 hours, had 2 cages, 2 rods, & six screws put in my lumbar region. I was in the hospital for four days and treated very well. I'm very thankful to all at HSS.
This Hospital is by far the most incredible hospital I have ever been served by. Their surgeons do what others can't and Dr Alberto Carli is absolutely AWESOME! 5 other surgeons from Providence, R.I. to Boston, Ma. said the only way to help me was to remove my right leg and give me another prosthetic, therefore making me a double above knee amputee, but Dr Carli said he can save my leg, if I heal, (so at least, I will still have it), (I'm Diabetic with a poor track record of healing). This hospital treats a lot of pro athletes and many celebrities etc. People come from all over the world for their skills. They are the #1 hospital in the country in Orthopedics for 9 straight years and #1 for the last 13 years for the countries lowest infection rates. Also, #3 in the country for Rheumatology. Just an INCREDIBLE HOSPITAL with THE WORLD'S BEST SURGEONS!!! Keep in mind, they are strictly an Orthopedic and Rheumatology Hospital only. Yes, their in New York City but worth the trip!
