Patient Comments (2)
I highly recommend Dr. Dines. He repaired my son's labrum. Although he seemed rushed, he really did take time to explain my son's condition and walk us through the different options. By the time he finished, we felt very comfortable moving forward with the surgery. He did a great job. We were extremely happy with him and with HSS. Great experience! High recommend!

Very easy to speak with. Really seems to know his stuff. I had surgery for my torn meniscus on Monday. I went home on crutches Monday afternoon. But Tuesday morning, I was walking up and down the stairs in my house unassisted. I was driving by Wednesday and back to work today (Thursday). While I hope to never have to have surgery again, if I do, it will be with Dr. Dines.
