My goal as an orthopaedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine is to return my patients to their active lifestyle. For some this might mean an Ironman competition, while for others it is a walk around New York City.
Dr. Sabrina Strickland is the co-founder of the HSS Patellofemoral Center
I just wanted to take a moment and share my story and wonderful experience with The Women's Sports Medicine Clinic and Doctor Sabrina Strickland at the Hospital for Special Surgery. As you can see, I am not “local” to NYC. It is an effort to come to Manhattan, but the effort it well worth it.The entire experience at HSS has been positive and singularly focused on getting me back to sports. I cannot thank you or Sr. Strickland enough for giving me my life back…
I came to Dr. Strickland scared, anxious, and in immense pain as a result of a bad fall and resulting significant shoulder injury. From the outset, Dr. Strickland balanced compassion and kindness with extreme thoroughness and competency. She recognized right away that my situation required a sense of urgency and in facilitating an immediate MRI she was able to quickly uncover and repair an issue that would have likely caused lifelong pain had it not been corrected in a timely manner.
Dr. Strickland gave me a total knee replacement in June 2016. Not only am I pain-free but can now enjoy myself with family and friends doing the things I love. As an avid tennis player, I was recently able to go on a tennis weekend with girlfriends. We had so much fun on and off the court! Thanks so much to Dr. Strickland and HSS!
Starry Night! Not enough stars for my review for Dr. Sabrina Strickland and her team. Dr. Strickland repaired a root tear to my meniscus which was a 6 week non-weight bearing nightmare for an avid runner who hates to ask for help with anything. During the 6 weeks I questioned many times if I would be able to return to the lifestyle I had lived prior to the tear. I have 10 Ironman triathlon finishes and many marathons under my belt. I am currently 5 months post-op and can run 6 miles no problem. Five months until the NYC Marathon - real good chance.
Dr. Strickland did promise me one thing - skiing by summer!
