"The best cheesecake this side of heaven - Hospital food indeed! (My incision photo was beautiful too, but not nearly as appetizing!)"
I had the good fortune to enter the Ambulatory Surgery unit early Wed, morning 8/22/12 for a total right hip replacement by Dr. Eric L. Grossman, using the anterior approach. Came out of surgery by 10:30 and by 2:30 that same afternoon took my first walk with a walker! Each day showed rapid improvement and by 1:00 Sat. 8/25 I walked to curbside for pick up by my son to go to therapy at Somers Manor. There, the therapists took me upstairs to view the PT facilities and after asked if I could use the stairway. I said OK and holding, but not using the cane he provided, walked down the long flight of stairs, normally! He then asked if I could climb back up the stairway, which I did, again not using the cane, and then I returned to the first floor! Amazed, he remarked that "They had discharged patients who where in worse shape than I!" I attribute my miraculous recovery to the fine work of the very professional team in the OR and to the exceptionally attentive care of the entire staff on the fourth floor of the Wallace Pavilion. Last, but not least by any means, you have the finest on-request food service in Mount Kisco! I was home by Wed 8/29 just 7 days later! I too am amazed!
