“This is the best hospital I’ve ever dealt with. I had both my knees replaced, one with the robotic assist and one before they got the new equipment. Big difference in my recovery time. The robotic assisted surgery allowed me to bounce back twice as fast. I would definitely recommend it if you need knee or hip surgery! Dr. Jay is very good at his job. I felt very uneasy about this procedure and he assured me and explained everything so well I felt I was in good hands.”

“I traveled 3hrs to a smaller medical center so that Dr. Jay would operate on my knee. In less than 2 weeks my knee was free from the gnawing, low grade pain that I was experiencing and with just 2 P.T sessions my knee isn’t bothering me at all. Morris greater area, you have something special going on here at SCMC, check it out!”

“About a year ago I was starting to have pain in my hip, it kept getting worse and my lifestyle was really changing. I am six weeks out now and pain free. I have a new lease on life! I’m so happy I had surgery at SCMC. I would recommend Dr. Jay to anyone!”
