Patient Success Stories PATIENT TESTIMONIALS

  • Easton Blake Testimonials

    -Easton Blake

    My name is Easton Blake and I was a patient of Dr. Drakos about 2 years ago. I came in with a ruptured Achilles tendon and he performed a repair on my foot, which now is fully healed 100%. Earlier this year I took the ultimate test by running the Brooklyn Half Marathon. I completed the 13.1 mile run in 2 hours and 8 minutes which isn't bad at all :-). I've also been playing basketball, even dunking again.

  • Sandica Dragomir Testimonials

    -Sandica Dragomir

    I had bunions on both feet and was experiencing lots of pain while running and exercising. I decided to have a Lapidus surgery procedure on my left foot in January 2017. I was able to run my first 5K, two months after the surgery and 10K after 3.5 months. My foot looks perfect and feels great. I am very satisfied, and will have the same procedure done on my right foot in November, after I run my second NYC Marathon.

  • Meagan Jaskot Testimonials

    -Meagan Jaskot

    During my freshman year of college, I felt a snapping in my ankle. After continuing to run the pain persisted and my ankle condition only worsened. I thought my time as a competitive collegiate athlete were over. Two surgeries later for intrasheath subluxation of peroneal tendons (tendon transfer November '14 & September '15), Dr. Mark Drakos and Nicole Paparella were able to do what I thought nobody would.

  • Edward Dixon Testimonials

    -Edward Dixon

    I've been to HSS three times for rehab for various injuries. The most recent was a broken fibula and torn ligament in my ankle that required surgery to repair. I had my surgery performed by Dr. Drakos and my physical therapist was Julie Khan. The surgery and recovery process was as smooth as can be expected and Julie pushed me through the rehab process and always challenged me to do more.
