Orthopaedic Testimonials

“A total knee replacement was the only option if I wanted to continue my active lifestyle. I chose the Center for Orthopaedic Specialties at the Mary’s Ave Campus in Kingston. The nursing care and encouragement I received at the Mary’s Ave Campus was outstanding. I was home in three days, back at work in a week and on the golf course in one month, thanks to the care I received at the Mary’s Ave Campus. I would highly recommend the Center at the Mary’s Ave Campus to anyone.”

Jeanette Longendyke, Surgical RN
“On October 27, 2009 I had a right total hip replacement at the Center for Orthopaedic Specialties at HealthAlliance. I can’t say enough about how impressed I was with the care there. I was back to work within 10 weeks working full time as a Registered Nurse and back to the gym in 13 weeks. I have no more pain, I’m sleeping better and I’m walking straight again without a limp. I feel like a totally new person. I am more energetic and haven’t felt this good in a long time. I can’t believe how fast I was back on my feet after surgery. Friends, neighbors and co-workers are amazed with the progress I’ve made. Who would have ever thought that at the age of 46, I would need a hip replacement, but it was the only answer to relieve my chronic pain. I would recommend the Center for Orthopaedic Specialties for anyone experiencing hip or knee pain.”

Sally Keough, CNA
“I had my right knee replaced on January 12, 2010. I was really nervous about going in for the procedure but the nurses really helped make it a positive experience. The physical therapy was the hardest part for me. But the therapists were understanding and really helped me work hard so that I could get to where I needed to be. I went home three days after the surgery and continued physical therapy at the outpatient department in Saugerties. By the time my course of physical therapy was completed, I had no pain and was able to go back to work. It’s great to now be able to go up and down steps and walk pain-free! As an employee of HealthAlliance my experience helps me better care for my patients as I know exactly how they feel.”
