Dr, Cornell is very patient and answered all my Questions and concerns. I told him I was more concerned about post hip surgery because of lack of assistance at home. He saw me at HSS three times and his office answered all my questions when I called.

I had knee replacement n 09/15/16. Very pleased with the surgery and my recovery thus far. Still doing PT. I felt whenever I called his office after surgery someone got back to me promptly and answered my questions and called in my medication immediately. Would definitely recommend him to family & friends. As a matter of fact he operated on my sister's knees in 2004 and 2006, she is still doing great with her knee replacement and she's 86 yrs. old.

While Dr Cornell did a successful hip replacement for me, my recovery was unnecessarily long (4 months) and I got no support or information from him or his staff. He cut many muscles to make it an easier surgery for him. Furthermore he performed the surgery 2 weeks (not 6 weeks) after I had a steroid shot (which most surgeons won't do because it complicates healing). Don't go!
