Orthopedic and Spine Institute
The right half of my right knee degraded following a high school injury. I asked Dr. Karas to perform the surgery at NWH based on a prior positive experience with him repairing an ACL. Dr. Karas provided the surgical solution, and then NWH physical therapy team provided my physical recovery. It’s now 7 ½ months after the surgery and I’m back to full strength. I look forward to having the active lifestyle I envision: skiing, hiking, mountain biking. I only stayed for one night in the hospital, but I was attended to by many highly skilled people. All with a great attitude. It’s a terrific hospital and it was a great experience.
I've had 3 spine surgeries at NWH with Dr. Marshal Peris. Dr. Peris is an outstanding man. His demeanor is so warming and confident that I felt so much trust for him. He explained everything, what he was going to do, and it was going to be all right. I couldn't wait to have him do the surgical implants. My life has changed so much. Every day I think about how great I feel. I've had no headaches, no numbness, my arms are stronger. I haven't stopped doing anything. I completely thank him.
On 10/27/16 I had emergency surgery on my spine for a herniated L4/L5 ,S1 hitting the nerve root.I want to thank my amazing Neurosurgeon Dr. John Abrahams & anesthesiologist Dr.Stan Jivotovski for giving me my life back! It's amazing that 3 days later I'm able to enjoy my dads 70th birthday party pain free. When after 6 weeks I could barely walk with the most unbearable pain I have ever felt. My thanks to your entire staff for making my hospital stay as pleasant and comfortable as possible.I was also blessed with being in one of the finest hospitals in the country Northern Westchester Hospital's Spine Institute. I'm forever grateful!
I was admitted on Oct 14, 2016 and underwent Spinal Fusion under Dr. Krosser and Dr. Abrahams. The operation has been successful so far and I see no reason why that will change. The reason for my communication is to commend you on the exceptional care I received during my post operative stay. You must be proud of your staff, from administration to the cleaning crew. The nursing staff was not only professional but exhibited a degree empathy that can not be taught. Your PCA's were magnanimous with their time and provided exceptional service, even walking with my at 2 and 4 am. Finally, even my interactions with the cleaning crew was polite and professional.I just felt that these unsung heroes needed to know how much I truly appreciated all they did to make an otherwise unavoidably painful stay as accommodating and pleasant as possible. Thanks again.Peter Iannace, Esq.5th Floor 10/14 to 10/16/2016 Rm. 535
