Exactly one year ago to date I had the great fortune of meeting Dr. Maynard. After three years of suffering from the effects of a torn hip labrum my activities were being curtailed dramatically. Because of my age, 63, it was recommended that I replace my hip and move on even though it was agreed that my hip, for the most part, was in good shape.
I came to HSS and Dr. Maynard, where I knew they were doing arthroscopic surgery for this problem without total hip replacement. The moment I met Dr. Maynard I felt like I had found the most caring and knowledgeable doctor. His ability to listen and diagnose the problem was amazing. He took a methodical approach including various tests and injection therapy, therefore enabling him to recommend arthroscopic surgery (no hip replacement) and ultimately a complete recovery. Thanks to Dr. Maynard I am back swimming, walking the golf course, exercising and just plain living my life.
For all of the above I am eternally grateful to Dr. Maynard. I cannot recommend him highly enough...
HE IS THE BEST!!!
I had ACL surgery 42 years ago as the result of a college lacrosse injury. After years of wear and tear, my knee became arthritic and crooked to the point where I endured constant discomfort and pain. Dr. Maynard was recommended to me by the surgeon who performed my operation four decades ago. Although Dr. Maynard had concerns about whether he could straighten the knee, the results were outstanding. After six months, my knee is straight, completely functional and, for the first time in years, I am pain free! He is the best! DJ
Compassionate is the word that comes to mind when I think of this doctor. He replaced both hips with no complications. Dr. Maynard always greets you with a smile and no matter how busy his appointment schedule is, takes his time to address all of your concerns. We, his patients, are truly blessed that he chose this profession.
Dr Maynard is far and away the BEST doctor I have ever seen (and believe me, I have been to many). He provided me with a complete and thorough diagnosis, explained in great detail in terms I could understand what was wrong, and then provided me with various options including the risk/reward of each. What set him apart is that I felt I was speaking with a friend, with someone who really cared that I got well. Thank you Dr. Maynard!!
I have had the BEST experiences with Dr. Maynard. His expertise is exceptional. He goes above and beyond what is required. His bedside manner is wonderful. He is NOT a doctor where ego comes first. Dr Maynard has worked with my difficulties like a trooper! I have had to have several shoulder replacements and I am looking at another as my body isn't very accepting. He has and IS using his skills and inquiring of other specialists to make my body work again. I have complete trust in his knowledge and skills. He has become like family to my family. I even recommended my dad to him for successful hip surgery. THANK YOU Dr Maynard for being YOU!
If you have a very big problem with your knee, Dr. Maynard is the right person to trust. Two years ago I fell on the street and tore my left quadriceps. The first doctor misdiagnosed me and did not recognize the tear and prescribed physical therapy. The second doctor did not advise surgery because scars developed and advised me to continue work in the gym.
After year and half, I met Dr. Maynard. He advised me to have surgery. He reconnected my torn meniscus and I regained stability of my leg. He saved my leg.
