Why choose Hospital for Special Surgery for care?

Kenneth Domney, Wanaque, NJ hip replacement and ACL surgery
I have a family history of arthritis. So when it became obvious that I needed surgery, I got it set up right away for July, 2004. However, once I had set it up, it seemed like every time I mentioned it to someone, they immediately told me about someone they knew who had been to HSS and that it was the only place to go. After 5 or 6 of these instances, I figured I was being directed for a reason. I cancelled my appointment and chose Dr. Pellicci at HSS for my hip replacement. The result was just about perfect! I am a professional Martial Arts instructor and after completing rehab, I was able to demonstrate moves I had not been able to show for years. Since then, I have been back to HSS for my right ACL with Dr. Coleman. And now I am writing this from my bed on the 7th floor 2 days after getting my other hip replaced, again by Dr. Pellicci. Judging by my therapy so far, my recovery will be equal to last time. I cannot thank all who work at this Hospital enough for their pleasant professionalism and skill. I recommend HSS to everyone I meet who needs any kind of orthopedic help.
