Lewis Feldman, Guttenberg, NJ hip surgery
I suffered from extreme hip and leg pain, and discomfort for almost a year before finally making the decision to have hip surgery. I was referred to Dr. Maynard by another doctor at HSS who said, "If you need hip surgery, then Dr. Maynard is your man."

I already knew that HSS was the best orthopedic hospital in the country, and after my initial exam with Dr. Maynard, I felt so confident with him as my surgeon. His office staff was also exemplary in every way and always made me feel at ease and comfortable. They even took care of my post-op care and needs and I received many follow-up phone calls. I will always be grateful to them for their personal care. By the way, my hip is 100% pain free and I feel like a new man.
