Torn ACL and Meniscus show details Torn ACL and Meniscus
by Anna S on Jan 28th, 2015

My experience from start to finish with Dr. Ron Noy has been excellent. The staff was extremely helpful with absolutely everything. My initial appointment was scheduled soon after I called the office. Dr. Noy was extremely thorough with his examination of my fully torn ACL and partially torn meniscus. He looked over my MRI and explained to me exactly what had happened with the ligaments in my knee. He answered all the questions that I had concerning my injury and the surgery that was necessary to fix my injury. He explained to me how the surgery would be performed, the exact medications that I would need, the exact dosages and times in which I should take the medicines, and the machines necessary for a quick and proper recovery. A motion machine was dropped off to my home 2 days before the surgery along with a cold therapy unit which helps ice the knee and reduce swelling much better than an ice pack or a bag of peas could. I must add that I saw two other orthopedic surgeons for opinions and a diagnosis before I visited Dr. Noy’s office. I should have saved myself the time and went to him first. One of the previous surgeons that I had visited for an opinion was not able to detect that I had damage to my patellar tendon and that using a section of that ligament to reconstruct my ACL would be damaging to my patellar tendon (basically fix one thing and have an issue with another). Dr. Noy on the other hand, was able to notice that from the MRI and used a cadaver tendon to construct the ACL. The cadaver tendon he used is one of the strongest tendons in the body compared to a hamstring tendon or patellar tendon. I only have 4 tiny incisions on my knee rather than a huge scar that is six inches down my knee. I DID NOT take any narcotics during my entire recovery, just Tylenol and Aleve. His technique allows for minimal pain and quicker recovery. I was up and walking within a week and able to flex my leg 125 degrees within 2.5 weeks. I recommend Dr. Noy to everyone. You can tell that he enjoys what he does and has a passion for his work. I have never come across a more hands on doctor.

Comparing Dr. Noy to the 3 other Orthopedic Surgeons I've seen, I can honestly say that there is no comparison. He was by far the most thorough, the most patient and the easiest to talk to. He was also the most skilled at reading diagnostic films. In the course of arthroscopic surgery on my knee, he was able to correct a number of issues that had gone untreated by a previous doctor. After nearly a year of trying to get back on my feet I feel like I'm finally on my way. I can't recommend Dr. Noy highly enough.

Definitely would use again and recommend Dr.Noy to anyone contemplating having Ortho or Sports related surgery. His results are outstanding and his level of Professionalism is beyond compare.I had a severely damaged shoulder condition, which Dr. Noy painstakingly corrected.He did this by going the extra mile and spending the time needed to give me my quality of life back.He along with his entire office staff are great and they will work with you 100% in working through scheduling, insurance issues, etc. I recommend Prestige Orthopaedics &Sports Medicine Wholeheartedly!

I visited two doctors at HSS over a period of 12 months before seeing Dr. Noy. Both are nationally-recognized names. Neither would spend much time with me and told me to "get used" to my shoulder pain. Dr. Noy diagnosed me during the second visit, suggested an arthroscopic surgery and operated within one month. I am on the way to recovery now. His office and staff are great, he quickly responds to e-mails and even answers his cell phone. I cannot think of better quality service.

by Evan N. on Feb 3rd, 2014

I was recommended to Dr. Noy by my primary care physician. Unlike my physician, Dr. Noy never allows a long wait at his office and takes his time with his patients. I had labrum surgery on my shoulder -- Dr. Noy took the time to answer all of my questions and to provide options when it came to my shoulder problems. Everything about the surgery, rehabilitation, and subsequent recovery went very smoothly. I would highly recommend Dr. Noy to anyone looking for a professional and skilled Orthopedic surgeon.

by Marie Zappone on Jan 14th, 2014

Dr. Noy is just wonderful, he explains everthing he does to you in detail made me feel atease after my surgery, As for his office staff they are very professional and helpful with all of your needs. I would recommend Dr. Noy to anyone who needs his specialties he is a great doctor.

His staff is super friendly and booking appointments is easy - I called one morning upset about the MRI report that my ACL was torn. They were able to fit me in the same day. Not only that, but Manhattan traffic was horrible that day, I arrived 30 minutes late for my appointment, and Dr. Noy was waiting for me even if I was the last patient that day. Surgical technique - let the facts speak for themselves. Upon going to physical therapy post-op, the PT comment was that he simply had never seen a patient in such a good condition 2 weeks post-op. I already had nearly complete knee flexion. In terms of follow up, simply the most accessible doctor I have ever seen - gives his personal email and cell phone to all his patients. I emailed questions 3 or 4 times before surgery, and all were replied to by the next day. The morning after surgery (it was Saturday), I had a question and called his cell phone at 9am, he picked up immediately. You really do not see this level of personalized attention in today`s medicine and it was really amazing to be treated like that by Dr. Noy. Accuracy of diagnosis - was 100% correct. Agreed with other 3 opinions I had that my ACL was completely torn. He reviewed the MRI images and disagreed with the radiologist report which stated I had a torn meniscus. At surgery my meniscus was confirmed to be intact.

Dr Noy knows how to take care of his patients. Any questions that I needed answered we're followed up within the hour of asking. I felt extremely comfortable at every visit and have full confidence in my recovery.

Dr. Noy knew his stuff. I felt very confident from my first visit that I was in the right place after seeing so many other Orthos. He performed surgery on my knee and I am greatful for his services.

by Scott Y. on May 20th, 2013

I had a full reconstruction of my RT shoulder in 2006 from a different doctor. I recently had my left shoulder done by Dr. Noy in May 2013. Comparing the two surgeries, I could not be happier with my results. I have had no discomfort at all and followed Dr. Noy's instructions exactly as prescribed. Considering my past experience (which was unbearable), I expected the worst... at least some discomfort, but I have not had any issues and couldn't have planned a better experience considering it was surgery! He is extremely thorough, detailed, goes over everything in the office, hospital, the follow up... so rare these days. I would give Dr. Noy the absolute highest recommendation any patient could give.

by LaVerne R. on Mar 22nd, 2013

Dr. Noy was great in explaining my condition and what exactly had to be done to correct it. When I had my surgery Dr. Noy talked to me before and after to ensure that I was comfortable. I highly recommend Dr. Noy. In addition, Dr. Noy's has a wonderful office staff. My physical therapist has stated that my speedy recovery is a testament on the skill of Dr. Noy's surgery.

Had injured my knee and was sent to get an MRI. The first doctor had read the films wrong and had completed an inaccurate report as a result. I was referred to Dr. Ron Noy-My wait time was about 5 minutes. He immediately went over each image with me and explained the discrepancies of the original MRI report. Then went on to explain the surgery and even went into detail on the new device that was just designed for the surgery. I have never had a doctor show such pride and passion in his work. I was very impressed with brilliant assesment of my injury.I strongly recommend Dr. Ron Noy to anyone searching for an excellent and caring Orthopedic.

My experiences with Dr. Noy have been nothing short of excellent. I`ve seen him for hip pain, a broken finger and a torn ACL, and he handled all of them excellently. I am currently recovering from ACL reconstruction allograft surgery and it`s been totally pain free and I`m way ahead of schedule. I attribute this entirely to Dr. Noy`s excellent surgical techniques and rehabilitation protocol. He is preofession, knowledgeable and an extremely effective surgeon.

Dr Noy is a real problem solver who is looking to do what is best for his patients rather than following the text book. In my case he had clearly spent time and effort thinking about my injury and the best course of treatment. He did not automatically jump to surgery as the first option and made a thorough assessment. He spent time with me both before and after the surgery to explain what he was doing and the post-op instructions. I could not have had better care.

I have been under a lot of pain for a year until I was introduced to Dr. Noy, after talking to him I felt and knew that I was in good hand, and fully trusted him. Dr Noy took the time in explaining what he is going to do during the Surgery, and also cover the steps I will need to take to make sure that I will not experience any pain or discomfort, as well as expediting my recovery. Dr Noy did such an incredible job on my shoulder, and by following his instruction, I didnt experience any pain during my recovery which was very short, I was able to move my shoulder again within 2 weeks from the surgery and I have no scars on my shoulder. I highly recommend Dr. Noy for anyone who is looking for the best care available.

Dr. Noy came highly recommended to me from a friend. I had seen two other orthopaedic surgeons before him, without finding a resolution that would reduce the pain I was feeling in my knee and possibly get me running again. I was able to have an MRI right there in his office after my first visit with him and I was amazed at how quickly an action plan was created. There was no drawn-out process, he's always on his game! There's a great office staff and both Dr. Noy and Elina are reachable by email. It truly was a pleasure!

Dr. Noy is not my brother in law and I am not his public relations agent. Many times a visit to a doctor's office is not too nice, but a visit to Dr. Noy is a pleasure....other than the pain you are in which is why you go to him in the first place. I use him. My wife uses him. My daughter uses him. If I could I would go out on the streets and tell everyone to use him. He knows his doctoring and he is charming and a pleasant person to talk to. Guess what? If you call him on the telephone he actually calls you back.

I came to Dr. Noy for 2 conditions, knee instability and plantar fascitis and had a great experience both times. I was able to get a convenient appointment, his staff worked with my insurance and the wait was not too long. Dr. Noy is very knowledgeable and thorough and really cares about his patients. How many doctors are there that give you their personal e-mail and cell phone in case you need them. I would recommend him without any hesitation.

This doctor is very rude. first of all he rushed me out of the office so fast, he also doesnt allow his patients to ask questions because apparently he thinks he knows everything. I have never seen such a rude person before.

by KA on Jul 7th, 2010

Dr Noy is excellent and, although he does not walk around smiling, he knows what he is doing. Id rather have a doctor lack in personality than lack in skills. He really does care about his patients and even provides his cell number for access to him at any time. He may not pick the phone up right away but he does get back to you and takes the time to answer any follow-up questions you may have. I wouldnt trust anyone else to take care of my injuries.

Jun 25th, 2010

I was there recently for an appointment. He seemed to be in a terrible mood and he was even rude to the staff. He rushed through the exam and answered my questions with an attitude. Like another reviewer mentioned he talked about my exam in the waiting room, which made me feel uncomfortable.

May 4th, 2010

Felt like I was rushed during my appointment despite waiting over an hour to see him. His staff is very nice, but he seems to have a bit of an attitude problem. When I asked him questions pertaining to my shoulder, his tone was condescending and flippant. I will be going elsewhere for my follow up treatment.

waited almost an hour from the appointment time. rushed through the appointment. held a conversation about my health issues in a public space in front of others. did not listen to my concerns or give me time to answer questions on how i felt. had to prod him to even find out if i needed any follow up care.was good with letting me know test results quickly.

Dr. Noy spent as much time with us as was necessary. He is an orthopaedist who does not immediately jump to a recommendation for surgery. His manner, courtesy and knowledge are admirable.
