Mary Dotzauer, Belmar, New Jersey knee replacement
When the arthritis in my knees finally stopped me from travelling, playing golf and enjoying life, I decided to take action. I called HSS and was referred to Dr. Mayman for minimally invasive knee replacement surgery. I had my left knee done in Jan '12 and it went so well, I did my right knee Nov '12! If anyone had told me I would do both knees in one year, I would have laughed. Dr. Mayman and staff are the best.... I felt I was in great hands and never looked back!
