"For many years, I couldn’t play tennis or golf let alone put on socks and shoes without experiencing serious pain in my left hip. The reputation of HSS for orthopedic surgery made the search for a surgeon to alleviate my pain that much easier. Thanks to Dr. Alexiades, living with pain is a thing of the past. I have a new lease on life as I’m ready to return to an active lifestyle pain-free!” – our patient Abbey, who had hip replacement surgery performed on him by HSS hip & knee surgeon Dr. Michael Alexiades and was in great spirits after his follow up appointment this past month! #hospitalforspecialsurgery

The overall patient experience at HSS was impressive and I cannot thank him and his team enough for the care they provided me with so that I could get back on the golf course pain-free.” – Our patient Vito, who had hip replacement surgery performed on him six weeks ago by HSS hip & knee surgeon Dr. Thomas Sculco! #HospitalForSpecialSurgery
