After researching credentials of several top orthopaedic surgeons,and keeping appointments with three of them, I was dismayed and unimpressed when I did not like any of them. On the advice of a fellow teacher, I consulted with Dr. Lucas. Right away,I felt that he was my guy. I had postponed the inevitable with my bad knees for way too long, and had done everything short of surgery. After much contemplation, I opted for bilateral knee surgery with Dr. Lucas at Mt. Sinai in 2006. Everyone said it would be painful and to do one knee at a time. I told Dr. Lucas that I wanted to suffer the pain - once. I trusted him and all went well. He was not only a doctor rated a "top NY doctor" by US News and World Report, but he was kind, caring and listened to me. I will be forever grateful to this wonderful man.Today, in 2011 I can dance (which I love to do), enjoy my retirement with my also retired husband. He literally gave me back my life, which may have ultimately put me in a wheelchair, had it not been for the talented hands of Dr. Lucas and God's good grace. I will never forget the wonderful treatment he provided, together with the beautiful staff of Mt. Sinai hospital.
