My name is William F. Manning. I had a total hip replacement on 10/24/12. The surgery was performed by Dr. Eric Grossman. He used the "ANTERIOR" procedure. If possible,it is the only way to go!!! Your staff had me taking my first steps only 2-1/2 hrs ater the procedure. The next morning I was taking a slow walk up and down the hall with one of your wonderful staff on each side of me. The following day , I was off to the Waterview Rehab. facility for 5 days of rehab. I continued my rehab. here in Mt. Kisco for about 4 weeks. The surgery was so successful, that I did not need a cane after the 9th day. Dr. Grossman does not use stiches or staples, he uses glue. My scar looks like the surgery was performed by Dr. Doug Roth, my Plastic surgeon. With the Anterior approach, their are no "HIP RESTRAINTS". The hip can not dislocate. By the middle of January, we were off to our home in Naples, Florida. I continued my walking, exercising and swimming while in Florida. Within 4 months, I was at about 80%. I am now at 100%. Eric gave me my old way of life back. He is still following up on my progress with x-rays and office visits. He is a credit to his Profession, your Hospital and the Mt. Kisco Medical Group. Did I tell you that I will be 79 years old on January 11th?
Respectfully submitted, Bill
