Debby Goldman,New York, NY hip surgery
Dr. Vad has treated a number of my painful joints very successfully. First, he was the only doctor to find the torn labrum in my hip, after months of misdiagnosis and physical therapy. Dr. S. Coleman successfully "scoped" my hip and I was pain free again.

On my 50th birthday, I went horseback riding and herniated 2 discs. I was in unbelievable pain. One epidural followed by walking (only) as exercise and I am cured. I cannot say enough about Dr. Vad, Dr. Coleman and their staff!
