Why choose Hospital for Special Surgery for care?

Carol Venuto, Bloomsburg, PA knee surgery
By the time I saw Dr. Figgie, my knees were in bad shape. I was no longer able to enjoy the trips I loved so much. During a family reunion last summer, we stayed at a historic Victorian hotel alongside beautiful falls, but I suffered constantly going up and down the stairs (there were no elevators). I could not do much hiking at all there, nor at our favorite ocean/redwoods spot in Northern, CA. Dr. Figgie and HSS gave me my life back, and I thank you.
