Had Left Total Knee Replacement 1/4/16. Dr Cushner is the BEST choice for this procedure! I am almost 100% better, quality of life is 1000% better than pre-surgery! He is a knee expert, explained everything to put me at ease (as I was VERY nervous). His staff is wonderful too! NSLIJ hospital gave the BEST care I ever had and post-op care was top-notch from home visits, to outpatient physical therapy. So glad I had the surgery with him!

I had BiLateral knee replacements.Dr Kushner did a great job.Im very happy now.Only one little thing,no its a big thing.I took a long time to heal and no one told me how long it could take.I don't work so its ok, but if I did,I wouldn't have been able to work for at least four months. Hes fantastic and I recommend him.

Convinced me to do an unnecessary procedure as part of my surgery. The osteochondral plug failed very shortly, it's no longer used due to high failure rates. Dr. Cushner made some statements which turned out too optimistic, and simply not true. Later I found out that he has some exclusive arrangement with the company who manufactures these plugs and likely benefited financially from each procedure which uses it.
