My experience was great! Pretty straightforward. I came in with functional issues with both knees including limited range of motion, locking, swelling, catching, and of course pain. Dr. Shubin Stein really displayed confidence and led the way. I followed and all is well. I ended up having double knee surgery at the same time per her recommendation (meniscus repair on my right and meniscectomy on the left, where they removed about 40% of my meniscus). Before I knew what was going on, it was over and she was standing over me along with my wife. The PT was great. I did about 6 months of PT with Julie at HSS that gradually brought me back to true form. Every step was well monitored and I can’t be more happy with the results. Dr. Shubin Stein did not sugarcoat anything and told me exactly what was to be expected and it really was that. Any other sensations I felt, she knew from her clinical expertise and gave me sound advice. I’m at about 10 months post-op now and I feel better and more capable than I’ve been in 2 years. Dr. Shubin Stein says it will take about a year or so to feel near normal, but I am already feeling complete. I am back to all my regular activities with very little limitations and as a Martial Arts instructor having my knees back is everything!! I can jump, I can kneel, I can squat, I can sit on my knees, I can lunge, I can twist and pivot. I’m very pleased with my experience at HSS and the entire Team they have, they are truly the best.
