Dr. Dunleavy: The perfect physician

He performed a total hip replacement on me last week. I've been suffering for over 10 years trying to avoid surgery and had seen 2 other surgeons prior.

Once I met Dr. Dunleavy I knew he was the perfect physician. His kindness, level of expertise and straightforward explanations gave me the confidence to move forward. I stayed one night in the joint center and was up and bearing full weight as soon as I was in my room. His secretary, Merlinda made all the arrangements and I'm now under the care of the physical therapy department. It's been a very exceptional experience and I am planning my next hip for the fall. I wish could give Dr. Dunleavy 10 stars for his care!  

Dr. Protomastro saved 46% of my left arm and hand.

Dr. Protomastro saved 46% of my left arm and hand. Maybe a third one will STOP the 24/7 little pains. I was told, I have to get used to the pains.

Dr. Lynch: Uses the Most Progressive Techniques for Knees and Shoulders

Dr. Lynch and his staff answered all my questions with kindness and respect before, day of, and after my surgery.

Norwalk’s Joint Replacement wing was private, clean, and comfortable. The entire nursing staff was gentle, and responded to my needs immediately. Don’t risk going to a “good” doctor for joint replacement. Because Dr. Lynch uses the most progressive techniques for knees and shoulders, six weeks after my TKR I feel great! I highly recommend this group for such an important procedure.

Dr. Frank: Next day I could walk on my feet

My name is Chris from Stamford, CT. I have been sick for the last month, could not walk.

My friend had to come to my house, take me out of the house. Went to several doctors, went to the hospital, but could not bend my knee, could not walk. My doctor made an appointment for me to see Dr. Frank in Darien, CT. Got there on a walking stick, went inside. I was out in one hour. Next day I could walk on my feet. It was great. It’s been great so far. Thanks Dr. Frank. Thanks a lot.



Dr. Sealey: Got me moving again

I have had three separate foot surgeries with Dr. Sealey. All were successful and the outcomes were in line with anticipated results.

He was "dead on" with recovery expectations and his constant reminders that these surgeries require up to a full year to realize the complete benefit. I now walk between 40 and 50 miles per week for exercise. Before Dr. Sealey, I was lucky to do 20. If I make 75 years, in part it will be because Dr. Sealey got me moving again. In the meantime, I do enjoy being pain free.



I have 100% range of motion and am pain free

In June, Dr. Frank performed a frozen shoulder release, bicep tendon repair, labrum repair, and subacromial decompression on me.

At 8 weeks post surgery I have 100% range of motion and am pain free. Dr Frank is a highly skilled surgeon and a very caring physician. He spent a great deal of time with me discussing the procedure and anesthesia which involved wearing a catheter for pain management for 8 days. My procedure was a bit more complex than most shoulder arthroscopy surgeries and as such carried increased risks. I did not have a single complication and am absolutely thrilled with the end result. I will be forever grateful for Dr. Frank’s skill, expertise, and kindness.

Dr. Henshaw: He's my guy

Amazing! Despite a second opinion from HSS in Manhattan, I opted to go with Dr.Henshaw (who trained at HSS).

I had such great results on my right rotator cuff that I didn't hesitate to have him do my left rotator cuff, both shoulders requiring a substantial amount of re-structuring, and both outcomes great. Add to that a truly caring and engaged demeanor, and Dr. Henshaw is your guy.
