Dr. Miller: Shoulder Replacement

Dear Dr. Miller. Tomorrow will be exactly one year since my total shoulder replacement. I had been living with worsening arthritis pain in my right shoulder for 10 years before your gentle encouragement convinced me to go forward with the surgery. The outcome seems like a miracle. My new shoulder feels wonderful! When I wake, I must think which shoulder was replaced, as both shoulders feel exactly alike. I have no pain, my strength has returned, my shoulder movement feels normal, my range of motion is better than before surgery, and the scar is nearly invisible. An amazing outcome. Thank you, a thousand times over, for being my doctor and accepting me as a patient. (Letter from K.M.)

Dr. Ennis: Right and Left Hip Replacements

On the first anniversary of the second hip replacement, I wanted to write to formally thank you. I feel great. Play golf regularly. Exercise everyday when I don’t golf. Am strong, and have achieved much greater range of motion that I ever thought I would. In short, happy all around. (Letter from J.O.)

Dr. Simon: Spine Surgery

Thank you, Dr. Simon and Team.  From surgery to Paris in less than six months! Your 4 – 5 excavation and flying buttresses worked. I went from sitting to circumvent numb legs to striding to keep pace with my brothers: Notre Dame, Montmartre, Eiffel Tower. Merveilleux!  Longest lasting side effects: Balance still improving. Smiles still excessive. (Comments in a letter from M.Y)

Dr. Miller: Rotator Cuff Repair

When shoulder surgeon, Dr. Seth Miller, performed a rotator cuff repair on Penny W’s husband, Bob, little did she know that she would turn to Dr. Miller to repair her severe rotator cuff injury  in just two months’ time.  “I was very impressed with Dr. Miller’s bedside manner,” Penny said.  “He was very generous with his time and answered all of our questions. He was not condescending and never made us feel rushed.  His communication style was clear and his easy ability to interact with us was truly distinguishing.  It was an amazingly great experience.”

An ONS Experience

I have sent several of my clients to ONS and all of them have been very happy with the service and their surgeries. Great doctors. (Comment on Facebook from Michele Leasure, MPT, OCS)

Dr. Kowalsky: Knee

Dr Kowalsky and the entire staff at ONS are professional, incredibly knowledgeable about their individual crafts and really cared about getting my knee/quad and leg back to normal so I can resume my daily activities. Dr Kowalsky, despite being very busy took the time to respond to a question via e-mail and I can’t name another Dr who would take the time to do so! Additionally ONS is “one stop shopping” from setting up appts, MRI, surgery and PT all under one roof! Their PT staff is exceptional! (5 Star Review on Healthgrades from Charles W. in Larchmont, NY)

Dr. Cunningham

We are so pleased with the service and treatment at ONS. Dr. Cunningham has been so patient, helpful and took amazing care of our daughter. I’m happy to speak to anyone about what they can expect. (Patient comment on ONS Facebook page)

Dr. Fiore

I was extremely happy with the services of ONS. I never waited for appointments and the doctors did not seemed rushed when they talked to me. The big thing of course is that Dr Fiore was able to diagnose and repair a back problem that other doctors had missed, and that I am again able to walk without pain. I didn’t have an easy time of it, but the ONS office always responded to me. The PAs were all well informed and compassionate. I liked the fact the Greenwich practice had everything there..MRI, Neurologists, etc so I did not have to go to many different places to be treated. I could not have asked for more. (5 Star Review on Google from Cary P.)

Kowalsky: Shoulder Surgery

I had a very serious shoulder injury. Dr. Kowalsky clearly and completely explained the extent of the injury and the surgery needed to repair my shoulder. He also accurately predicted the recovery time and effort needed. Dr. Kowalsky always took as much time as was needed to thoroughly answer every one of my questions. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who has experienced a shoulder injury. (5 Star Review on Healthgrades)

Dr. Miller: Shoulder Replacement

Dear Dr. Miller, Tomorrow, December 7th, will be exactly one year since my total shoulder replacement. I had been living with worsening arthritis pain in my right shoulder for 10 years before your gentle encouragement convinced me to go forward with the surgery.  The outcome seems like a miracle. My new shoulder feels wonderful! When I wake, I must think which shoulder was replaced, as both shoulders feel exactly alike.

Thank you, a thousand times over, for being my doctor and accepting me as a patient. Sincerely, Ken M. (patient letter)

Dr. Berliner: Hip Replacements

With two hip replacements in 10 months I cannot say enough about Dr. Berliner and ONS. Professional, caring and superb quality of care. Would recommend Dr. Berliner and ONS to anyone with orthopedic concerns. (5 Star Review on Google from Lauri G.)

An ONS Experience

My experience with ONS and Dr. Delos has been outstanding in every way. I had been suffering with osteoarthritis in my knees and was looking for a second opinion. During my first appointment with Dr. Delos and after his review of my x-rays and my medical history, he thoughtfully explained all of my options and we worked together to determine next steps. My condition was advanced and I had already tried medication and physical therapy which had not relieved my pain. I tried cortisone injections next, but this too proved to be of limited value and my ability to walk and degree of pain worsened. I ultimately decided to request bilateral knee replacement. Again, Dr. Delos went over everything with me in a patient and clear manner with all of the risks and benefits identified. I felt confident and prepared after our appointment and I knew that if I played my part both in prepping for and participating in the hard work after surgery, that I could return to a normal life. The entire ONS team was incredibly organized and helpful in every way. In no time, I was scheduled for surgery, booked for a pre-surgery class and all my questions were answered. Each person I interacted with was friendly, competent and caring. My surgery at Greenwich Hospital was a complete success. Dr. Delos and his team did an amazing job and the staff at the hospital was fantastic. I could not have asked for more. Today, 5 months after surgery, I am walking normally and without pain. I am continuing to exercise and follow the advice provided by my physical therapists and with each month that goes by I continue to be amazed at how different my life is than it was at this time last year. This surgery gave me my life back and I am forever grateful to Dr. Delos and his team of dedicated professionals for making that happen. (5 Star Review on Google from Ellen R.)
