Jaime, New York, NY flexor tendon repair
As a trained dancer, who has performed professionally, I had never really lost mobility anywhere in my body. Then on Memorial Day 2012, I accidently cut my right pinky at the lower joint, while using a knife to make a sandwich. Seeing my limp finger just hanging there was a scary thing.

I feel so fortunate to have found Steve K. Lee, MD and Hospital for Special Surgery. He was such a wonderful surgeon and so was the care I received at the Hospital. The nurses, the technicians and the physical therapist who oversaw my rehabilitation were all top notch. I felt so taken care of the entire time.

I am forever grateful to the emergency department specialist who recommended that I see Dr. Lee. He definitely helped me to find the path I needed for the fine care that I received. Today, a year following the accident, 99 percent of my mobility is back!

Thank you Dr. Lee for helping to make this Memorial Day much better than last year!
