Question Recommendations for TKR at Hospital for Special Surgery?

I want to have a consult for knee replacement at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan. I have seen some positive posts about Dr. Steven Haas. Has anyone had the surgery done there and have a doctor to recommend? Thanks, Barb

Re: Recommendations for TKR at Hospital for Special Surgery?

Thanks so much for the advice. I am still contemplating calling them. Everyone you talk to gives you a different idea and it can get so confusing. Even though my knee is s problem, my hip is bothering me so much I feel I need to take care of this first. One doc here thinks it is referred pain from my back, but I am beginning to think it is hip related. Sharp pain over hip whenever I take a step.
I am so sorry to hear you are in so much pain from your knee. Are you taking the meds? I surely hope you start to feel better and feel glad that you had it done. Keep me posted on your progress. Take care, Barb

I know the feeling about reading conflicting stories.
Best suggestion is ask people, co-workers, friends, neighbors, etc if they know of a GOOD Othro Surgeon in your area.
The more they do, the better they are.....

Being my knee has always given me problems, when my hip started to hurt, I too thought it was knee related... Favoring the good leg when I walked...Pain was so unbearable - couldn't stand nor walk...excruciating painful....Had it xrayed and was told I had fractured my hip... Needed a replacement.
So go have it checked.... don't wait till you have more damage... Dr might just say bed rest...or... surgery... Sorry to say.

Good luck to you...
