Absolutely fabulous on all levels! From the first visit to last follow-up, Dr Gonzalez Della Valle was exceptional. Aside from the comfortable, engaging discussions and deep concern for my understanding of the diagnosis, prognosis and all expectations, the most important part of this journey was an exceptional outcome. And I wasn't disappointed - I was elated. At approximately 11 weeks post surgery, I was discharged from PT for my knee replacement

I contacted Dr. DellaValle when I sought a second opinion for knee replacement. He was direct and thorough in his assessment of my condition. He fully explained the procedure to my spouse and I and I decided to let him operate on me. He did both my knees at different times. I am walking without any pain in my knees and rarely have had any discomfort. I recommend him.

Dr. GDV replaced both my hips 18 months apart. I am extremely pleased with both the process and the results. Dr GDV thoroughly explained the surgery and was helpful in my post-op recovery. The entire HSS experience was well-planned and well-executed. The hospital staff was outstanding. My recovery from both operations went smoothly. I was walking immediately, hiking in 4-5 weeks and on the golf course in week 6. I'm so pleased to be back to my old self. Thanks Dr. GDV and HSS!

With Dr. Della Valle, I knew I was in good hands. That was not the case with two other surgeons whom I had consulted about hip replacement. Dr. Della Valle took the time to address every one of my concerns, and I'm thrilled with the outcome of the surgery. I was back at yoga and regular workouts in a matter of months. And on trips, I can walk for miles!

Words cannot truly explain all there is to say about Dr. GonzalezDellaValle. He has performed a total hip replacement, followed by 2 total knee replacements...I am speaking from experience! Not only is his expertise superb, but his compassionate bedside manner would be difficult to match. He strictly focuses on ONLY you while attentively listening to your concerns. He thoroughly explains everything in his gentle, caring manner. I feel as if he is my friend that turned me into a bionic woman!

Dr. DellaValle is an outstanding surgeon with an excellent, gentle, bedside manner. He really knows his stuff & inspired complete confidence in me & my family. He was willing to take the time to answer and explain all our questions and never made us feel like he thought we were wasting his time. 1 year after Bi-lateral hip replacement (age 60) I am strong, healthy, full of energy - walking, hiking, doing yoga, weight training & more with confidence and joy. Wish I'd heard of Dr DV years ago.

I had a knee replacement not by Dr. DellaValle. I continued spinning classes. On the way to my father's funeral I found myself falling down and broke my femur. I came to HSS by ambulance and met Dr. DellaValle. My knee and femur were a mess. Dr fixed my femur with screws. After 3 months he put in another knee replacement because the first was compromised from the fall. He is a saint for putting me back together, I spin no more but play lots of golf. I am indebted to him for my quality of life

Dr. Della Valle performed revision surgery on my right knee replacement on 8/22/18. My original right knee replacement (done by another doctor)was off track. The first day the PT got me to stand up, I immediately felt a difference. The knee felt straighter & stronger. While I’m only one week out of surgery, I know this time it’s going to be different. Thanks to Dr. DellValle & his fantastic staff for giving me this second chance.

Dr. Della Valle is fabulous. I had broken my right hip but developed avascular necrosis. I found Dr. Della Valle at Hospital for Special Surgery in NYC and the entire process was tremendous. He is so caring, we could talk to each other so everything was carefully explained. I was in good hands. Surgery went smoothly, this hospital is 1st class and the cleanest hospital in the US. The nurses are highly trained, intelligent, caring. He is very brilliant. 7 yr's now, pain free. TMO

Dr. Gonzalez Della Valle performed knee revision surgery on my left knee three years after my original knee replacement surgery that was performed by another orthopedist was causing me problems. I am finally able to walk pain free after suffering for all that time. He was able to assess the situation and and explain to me what needed to be done to make the problem better. I am so happy that I went ahead with the revision

The doctor replaced my hip over 4 years ago and ever since I have been in pain. Not only is he of no help (after 2 surgeries), he's extremely condescending. I hope other people have a better experience.

After several surgeries with no improvement Dr Della Valle performed a TKR on my left knee. The only regret I have is that I did not know about him sooner.
