Jonathan Vigdorchik, M.D, Hip & Knee Surgeon, New York, Uniondale, NY || Patient Info || Patient Testimonials ‖ Patient Testimonials Submit Testimonials Ralph Bottone's Story 1 2 3 4 5 As a 64 year old who had never before had any surgery, I was naturally apprehensive and a bit frightened to undergo hip replacement surgery. Dr. Vigdorchik could not have made this experience any easier for me. His pleasant bedside manner and outstanding surgical skills were exceptional. I was home the following day and am well on my way to a full recovery in just 6 weeks! I am extremely grateful to Dr. Vigdorchik and his team at HSS for making me whole again. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
