I had broken my elbow and she did the surgery to put me back together. I had complications as my bones were osteopenic. She determined the necessary hardware I needed and completed the surgery. Today, I have full use of my arm. Dr. Kang, the HSS nurses and pain management doctors dealt with my needs professionally and kindly. Absolutely tops!
