Knee replacement, June 2012
“This place is a jewel”
She came back… for a second knee replacement! Seven days later she was walking again – without any pain. Four years after her left knee was replaced, Carol, who splits her time between Bethel, NY, and Manhattan, decided to have her right knee replaced. The quality of care and compassionate environment Carol remembered, from the Horton Campus of Orange Regional, was the reason she returned. Having her surgery in the new hospital, Carol and her husband, Dr. Allan Abramson, Chairman of the Department of Otolaryngology at Long Island Jewish Medical Center (North Shore-LIJ), in New Hyde Park, NY, praised the connection between the physician and the care team.
“They’re [the care team] all on the same page. At Orange Regional we found friendliness, cleanliness and courtesy in addition to superior care,” states Mr. Abramson.
