We couldn't have asked for a better surgeon for my son's ACL surgery. She made us feel comfortable from the very beginning. Not only did Dr Hammoud explain everything so that me and my husband understood but she made sure my 16 year old was aware of everything that was going to happen. Dr Hammoud, thank you for everything!

When Dr. Hammoud walks into the room, you immediately feel that you are in the presence of a confident and talented doctor and surgeon. I went to her with a broken clavicle that required surgery. She explained the surgery in a clear and concise way and made me feel safe and comfortable. Before surgery, she again clearly explained the process and I knew I was in very capable hands. Nine days after surgery, I no longer need a sling, and can drive and play guitar. Dr. Hammoud is a rock-star!

No doubt would, and have, recommended Dr Hammoud. Her beside manner is bar none; her ability to put into "laymen terms" her knowledge and expertise is beyond impressive. Her bubbly and warm personality while giving it you straight are the perfect combination. And that was all pre op. Post op I was all the more of how of just how she SAVED my knee; making it seem effortless. Her surgical procedures and techniques are best of best and tailored to each individual in order to obtain maximum results.

I've had four surgeries here at Rothman and with each one I have been so satisfied with the results. Back to work at 100% each time. My last surgery was scary but Dr. Hammoud made me feel very comfortable. I had no doubt that i would be back at 100%! Can't thank you enough!

After falling in a ski accident and having an unusual tibia break and destroying my ACL she was able to create my best treatment options for surgery. I'm so happy I went to her 2 years later and I have my knee fully functioning with no problems or complications. I can not thank Dr. Hammoud enough for taking such great care of me during the time I was her patient & for her fixing my knee during surgery. I highly recommend her for anyone especially young women who need surgery for knee injuries

I first met dr hammoud in march of 14. my accident was in feb. but i was in the hospital and then rehab before i could get to see her. my wife suzanne and i were pretty upset about all that was wrong with me, but it was just after dr hammoud gave us the details of what was all going to need surgery, she saw that we were overwhelmed, and looked me in the eye and said, you have a lot of things going on here, and im going to make you better. we both knew at that moment that we had the right surgeon
