Richard M. Seldes, MD

Hip Arthroscopy: Hip Arthroscopy Testimonials

Elizabeth Moran

"I am writing to say how pleased I am with the results of my hip surgery. I had been in chronic pain, which had severely limited my ability to walk normally and exercise. After the initial recovery, I was able to move again without pain and begin exercising. I am now back to exercising 3-4 times per week without pain. I would do the surgery again in a minute and appreciate all the time and care Dr. Seldes and his team took to make the experience a very positive one."

"As an avid triathlete and half marathoner, "surgery" to me is like a four-letter word. However, in late 2007, the pain in my hip was too severe to ignore anymore. Running even a few miles was excruciating. I was referred to Dr. Seldes from another surgeon who spoke very highly of his work and felt strongly that he would be the right surgeon for my particular type of injury. I had a right hip impingement with a torn labrum and needed surgery to correct the issue if I wanted to keep playing sports and prevent arthritis.

From the moment that I had my first consultation with Dr. Seldes, I knew that I was in good hands. I had never had surgery before, so suffice to say I was terrified! He talked me through everything, assuaged my fears and provided a little levity to an otherwise unnerving situation. His staff was very willing to answer any of my questions (of which I had many!) and never once was I made to feel like I was being overly neurotic or was irritating them. I must say that I was truly impressed with the all over level of professionalism and courtesy that I was treated with by both Dr. Seldes and all of those who work with him.

Three months after my surgery and I was already about half way back to my previous level of conditioning. Five months and I was running and cycling like nothing had ever happened! The pain in my hip is gone and I for the first time in a long time, I can now go about my daily business and training without thinking about the nagging pain in my joint. I know that my surgery was a success; I feel it everyday in everything that I do. I also know that a very large part of the reason for that success was the fact that I had a very, very good surgeon.
