Richard DeLuca, Stony Point, NY  hip replacement, shoulder replacement, and hand surgery
I have had four surgeries at HSS, three total joint replacements and one surgery on my hand to correct the effects of Dupuytren's contracture. My first surgery was a total left hip replacement it was done in May of 2007 by Dr. Haas and his team. In August of 2009, I had a total right shoulder replacement. It was done by Dr. Rodeo and his team. In December of 2009, I had a total right hip replacement which was again done by Dr. Haas. I have always been very active. I love to exercise, run ,cycle, lift weights, and participate in sports, especially golf. Before I had my hip replacements, I could barely walk to the car at the end of the workday. more
