New York, NY |
Excellent results for my son's ACL surgery and then 8 months later my husband's meniscus tear. Dr McCarthy was excellent and I recommend her for everything. She explains the reasons for surgery and then is very hands-on for the recovery and rehab. I recommend her to all my friends and family.

She was excellent. She made me feel comfortable with the surgery. The surgery experience at HSS was superb as was Dr. McCarthy! I recommend her to everyone.
Stamford, CT |
Awesome experience. I tore my meniscus, ACL, and MCL. It was a long road to recovery, but Dr. McCarthy explained that it would be long from the beginning but that I would get back to soccer. I am so grateful! I recommend her to everyone!
