Janet Stubbs, Helmetta, NJ — knee replacement
After having a below-knee amputation on my left leg due to an MRSA infection, it was recommended I use HSS for my right knee replacement because of the extremely low infection rate. All of the physicians I saw there were caring and accommodating to my circumstances. Dr. Figgie is an outstanding surgeon with a wonderful bedside manner. He and his staff helped to keep me in the loop on everything. I have several friends who have had recent knee replacements elsewhere, and not one of them has had the post-op success that I have had with mine. Within three weeks my leg was bearing my entire weight so I could again transfer when I am without my prosthesis.
