I am a huge fan of Dr. Cross! Although obviously busy and in high demand (who want's a surgeon who isn't busy?) he is extremely nice and user friendly. I was apprehensive going into my hip replacement but his comments before the procedure, his room visits during my brief stay at HSS and my post-Op visit with him were all extremely comforting. He takes whatever time you need to answer your questions and concerns. Oh, and the procedure was an amazing success. I was back at work in 2 weeks!

My mom had both of her knees replaced six weeks apart and she couldn’t have been happier. She is from Ghana and barely understands a word of English but after meeting Dr. Cross who took his time and managed to explain the procedure and the possible outcome to her understanding she couldn’t wait. She has a made marked improvement after the second surgery, she is happy with the result thus far. Dr. Cross appears compassionate and caring she said to me and that she is glad and lucky she had him.

Had a great experience with Dr. Cross and his staff. He listens, explains things clearly, is friendly and compassionate. Underwent a partial knee replacement in Feb 2018. All went very smoothly and am returning rapidly to my active life.

I cannot recommend Dr. Cross (and HSS) highly enough. His replacement of both my knees two years ago is allowing me to remain spritely at the age of 84. The quality and character of his care is worth traveling even much farther than from my home in Washington, DC. And it is entirely consistent with my experience with other specialists at HSS, including Dr. Kim (my spine) and others years ago (for my mother!).

De Cross did both my knees, six weeks apart. Didn't have second thoughts going in for second one because I recovered so well. Second knee was in worse shape and recovery a little slower, but so glad I found Dr Cross! Kind caring a great bedside manner which is hard to find these days and very easy on the eyes!

I give my highest recommendations for Dr. Michael Cross. He is an extraordinary orthopedic surgeon, a very caring and attentive doctor with a bright and wonderful personality. In 1997 in a car accident I broke my pelvis. The surgeon put the bones together by two metal plates and a number of screws. He said that in a few years I would develop osteoarthritis. Nineteen years later, exactly as he had predicted, the cartilage was completely gone and the arthritis became so painful that I barely coul

I have never found a doctor as good as Doctor Cross at any time. He is professional, courteous and has the ability to make patients feel as though the patient's diagnosis is an important part of his life. in simple words he is great.

Dr Cross performed a total replacement of my left knee 8/8/16. Within 8 weeks I was back On the road traveling to a 5 day conference in Las Vegas; walking several miles each day. My left knee already feels better that's my right knee, which was replaced by a different surgeon at a different hospital 5 years ago. Dr Cross and his entire team provide the very best care at the very best orthopedic hospital in the US.

I consider myself very fortunate to have had Dr Cross do my hip replacement surgery 3 weeks ago. I am 75. Results have far exceeded my expectations - in fact my Physical Therapist said she has never seen a faster recovery. Post surgery discomfort has been minimal and I have been walking without assistance for past week. Thank you Dr Cross and all at HSS!
