It has been 2 1/2 years since Dr. Rodriguez performed a total knee replacement on my left knee. Before the surgery my leg was starting to bow and I walked with a limp. I left the hospital the day after the surgery and after the post op pain finally went away I have been pain free and completely happy with my decision to have him do my surgery. I highly recommend him.

I am very disappointed the way my husband was treated at dr Rodriguez's office. I mad the appointment and was told he accepts Medicare and was booking surgeries 3 months out. After meeting with him, we were very impressed and were reading to book the surgery right away. The girl making the surgery appointment said he is not accepting Medicare as of January and that he is booked till February so basically our long ride into the city was of no value. we should have been notified.

Dr. Rodriguez not only is a brilliant surgeon, he is the most caring & sympathetic human being possible, with an excellent bedside manner. He listens to you, never rushing you, looking at you, not at the keys of a computer, inputting your medical history. He always takes care of his patients post - op himself; he is very "hands on"! His office staff, too, are top rate. I'm so happy & grateful to him for restoring my mobility & making me pain free after my total, bilateral, knee replacement!

The kindest most professional an great doctor. If you hip or knee issues look no further. He has replaced my hips ( a few years apart), I'm grateful to have him. He made going to the dentist worse than the two surgeries. He's the go to guy!

Dr. Rodriguez is a rock star. Four weeks ago I had a total hip replacement (anterior is his specialty). Within two days post op, I was walking with a cane in my apartment and within a week, I was pretty mobile. While I am still recovering, I am walking around NYC as if I were a 30 year old (am 64) and haven't felt this kind of physical freedom for years, really. I am so grateful to Dr. Rodriquez and his wonderful team for radically changing the quality of my life.

I had a total hip replacement by Dr. Rodriguez on 1/11/17. At 81 yrs old, naturally I was concerned for the outcome. The results were outstanding. All the pain and discomfort I had was history. As an individual I found Dr. Rodriquez (and his staff) to be very compassionate, empathetic and genuine. As a surgeon he is on the top of the best. I recommend him very highly. For me, he is the best.

Dr Rodriquez is skilled knowledgeable and compassionate. He actually listens and is the full package you want in a surgeon. His staff reflect his compassion they also are easy to work with It is wonderful that he is moving his practice to Hospital for Special Surgery as Lenox hill hospital was not up to his level

Dr. Rodriguez is an incredibly gifted surgeon who is also kind and considerate. It was Dr. Rodriguez himeslf who called me back late on a Saturday night after I contacted his service. He put my concerns to rest and made me feel comfortable and well cared for. In addition, he has imparted these values on his staff. They never hesitate to return calls, to treat patients with kindness and concern and to make patients feel good. I strongly recommend this surgeon.

Dr. Rodriguez operated on my friend, Mike, who is a fireman, 2 weeks ago. He had both hips replaced. He came walking into the gym today like nothing had happened! I've known Mike for 30 years. He had been in excruciating pain for the past few years. Every time he came to the gym he could hardly walk, always had this painful grimace on his face, and found it hard to break a smile. Now, just after two weeks of recovery, he walks perfectly, has no pain, and all smiles. Thanks for the miracle, Doc!

Dr. Rodriquez corrected a hip replacement gone wrong under another high profile surgeon's watch a decade ago. Three years ago he replaced my right knee. He is about to replace my left knee. His calm delivery, caring demeanor and honesty are attributes that complement the extraordinary gift of his skilled hands.

Dr. Rodriguez is the warmest, most knowledgeable physician I have encountered in my 66 years! He diagnosed my hip issues, did a full hip replacement, and had me up on my feet and out of the hospital the next day! I am walking 4-5 miles a day now, and cannot praise this caring physician enough!

I had gone for 3 opinions, 2 at the hospital for special surgery and one at Princeton Bone and Joint. It wasn't until I walked into Dr. Rodriguez's office and met with him and his staff that I knew this is the place for me. He looked at my x-rays, listened to my list of physical problems, and examined me. I told him that I have not had a quality of life for over 2 yrs and that he came HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. I booked the operation. It was the BEST decision ever!!!

extremely competent, caring; excellent hospital experience at Lenox Hill. I had both my knees done, 18 months apart. Very satisfied with a difficult surgery, and recovery. One feels he/she is in the 'best hands.'
