Linda Raymond, Edgewater Park, NJ hip replacement
When I was eighteen I was in a severe car accident and shattered my left hip which left my left leg shorter than the right. At 22, I had the hip fused at a 20-degree angle and remained that way for the next 30 years. I had severe back pain and walked with a pronounced limp. After having my left knee replaced, it was recommended to me that I have the fusion taken down and my hip replaced. A friend recommended HSS and that is where I mean Dr. Mayman. From the first visit I knew he was the right doctor for me. He made me feel confident and relaxed. He replaced my hip and lengthened my leg. Now I no longer walk bent over and for the first time stand straight. What a miracle! I am so happy to have found Dr. Mayman and will be forever grateful for what he has done for me.
