After years of pain and discomfort, I booked an appt. with Dr. Su for my knee. After consultation with Dr Su, it was decided a total knee replacement would be beneficial to my life. Had surgery in Nov. 2019 and have to say it was the best thing I have done. Dr su did a fantastic job, no pain, walking day after surgery and my life is back to where I can do the things I want. I thank Dr Su for giving me my life back!

Six years after having both hips resurfaced at age 59 (4 months apart) I feel that I still lead an active, unrestricted life. Prior to the surgeries I could barely walk. Right after the surgery, there was some swelling and stiffness, but nothing I would call pain. I’m a big guy (230lbs.), but rehab was a breeze and I remain pain free.

Relates to a patient as though the patient is a cadaver. Left crippled after operation.

Outstanding surgeon. Dr. Su did wonders for my husband and for me. I never thought that a hip replacement would be so easy and pain free. I was walking within days and was back to full activities within months. Dr. Su is a truly gifted surgeon and a kind and caring person.

I am tremendously impressed with Dr Su. He detected (with no help from me) that I wasn't having knee problems, but rather, I was having back problems which were manifesting themselves through my knees. Which TOTALLY shocked me....my back felt fine He ordered MRI's, which confirmed his hunch. However, as he's a knee a hip man, not a back man, he passed me along to 1 of 3 back doctors, the choice being mine. I am still tremendously impressed with him.

I traveled from Louisiana to NYC to see Dr Su about hip resurfacing which I believed fit my active life style. Fortunately I was able th accomplish in one trip with an excellent result. As a physician, I wanted to get back to work ASAP. I was able to resume office duty part time after 7 days and full time in 14.thank you Dr Su and staff for a smooth procedure and post operative course.

I went for several opinions and I live in Philadelphia. I was young and found out about hip resurfacing and came to Dr. Su via a web site called surfacehippy.com that is great. Dr Su was fantastic I immediately felt confident that he could help me and he is caring and overall was outstanding I am a physician as well and he is a doctors doctor. The hospital was great too. I am almost 7 years out form my resurfacing and cannot recommend him highly enough 5 stars for sure!

Dr. Su changed my life! Seriously. Dr. Su, his associates and staff are all amazing people. And, everyone at HSS was fantastic. I had a hip re-surfacing 2 months ago. I was walking almost immediately after surgery and was only mildly uncomfortable...no real pain. Two months out and I feel amazing. I am singing their praises to anyone who will listen. My cousin in California needs hip surgery and I'm insisting she come to NYC, HSS and Dr. Su.

Surgeon skill and experience are the central considerations when having a hip resurfaced. Dr. Su's skill and experience are unsurpassed. I would not trust any other doctor to perform my resurfacing. I am five weeks out of surgery and have resumed all normal daily activities. I've been pain free from the moment I awoke after the procedure. My smooth recovery is largely a testament to his skill. If you're considering a hip resurfacing, make an appointment with Dr. Su. You'll be glad you did!

Dr. Su is an amazing surgeon! I livein Charleston South Carolina and travelled to New York City to have Dr. Su do bilateral hip replacements. I am a physician myself and I knew that Dr. Su would do the best job possible for me. Just 2 weeks ago I had both hips done and my recovery has been a breeze. I know that it is the expertise of Dr. Su that is allowing me to have such a great recovery. Before my surgery, I could hardly walk and just after two weeks, I am walking city blocks.

Thank You Dr. Su.

After my co-worker and friend, Victor Shimmons, recommended Dr. Su I was a little skeptical. I did some research and decided Dr. Su was the best choice. Sure enough, 3 weeks later, I know made the best decision of my life. My surgery was on November 28th 2017. I can walk with a cane, bathe myself and get around really well! Dr. Su has a great bedside manner, is trustworthy and caring. I highly recommend him in any capacity. His staff is also very attentive and caring.

Left me crippled and unable to walk and in constant pain 24/7, with less movement in my hip than prior to the surgery. Then told me he could do nothing for me. Was lucky to find another surgeon who easily reconstructed the hip and now able to do yoga, walk miles and have a life again.

Dr. Su is a gifted surgeon as well as a lovely person. He is well-versed on the most up-to-date procedures. I felt completely comfortable from the first time I met him, and he took his time to explain the procedure to me (anterior procedure of total hip replacement). My surgery went well, and I now feel like I have a new lease on life. I have no pain when I walk, and can do my 10,000 steps a day. I can't recommend him highly enough.

I am a female in my late 60's, not typical for Dr Su. Nonetheless he resurfaced each of my hips and each surgery was beautifully done with minimal scarring and great results, 3 and 7 years ago. When I needed a total knee replacement I was delighted to learn that one third of Dr Su's practice is knees. Within four weeks of his replacing my knee I had full flexion and could walk without assistance. Now at 10 weeks I am working on strength. Experienced PT's are amazed at my outstanding results.
