  • Partial knee replacement
On April 1, 2015 I underwent a partial knee replacement on my right knee. The following day I was released from the hospital and went home. Within one week I was up and about and almost back to normal. By Mother's Day I was off to Colorado to visit my daughter and in July I went off to Ireland with all of my family, my husband, my three children and their spouses and my five grandchildren. I felt like a brand new person. Thank God for caring and skilled doctors such as Dr. David Lent and all the members of Southern Westchester Orthopedics & Sports Medicine.

  • partial knee replacement
I am so very grateful to Dr.Lent! I had suffered far too many years, and underwent 2 knee surgeries elsewhere before finally taking the plunge. When I met Dr. Lent, he explained everything in great detail and was very professional. My end result says it all...I am back to my old self and doing all the things I was un too much pain to do before. Thank you so much to Dr. Lent for giving me my life back!!

  • Makoplasty
I had makoplasty done to my knee and a few hours after getting out of recovery. I was walking laps around the hospital floor with my walker. I was in less pain after a week of recovery than before the surgery. I was back to work two weeks after surgery ,walking and doing all the things I did before. Dr Lent did a great job and my leg is now straight and I walk without pain and no more back pain also. His staff and Dobbs Ferry Hospital took care of everything I needed and after care and I had a great recovery. Thanks

  • 2 patella femoral makoplasty surgeries
On 12/30/15 & 1/19/16 Dr. Lent and his team performed patella femoral makoplasty surgery on my knees. Though the recovery journey was a long one for me due to other issues I had, I can safely say that I am a card carrying member of Dr. Lent's cheer leading team! For the first time in YEARS I can walk without pain!!!! I really am a new woman. Thank you so much! But seriously, if you are as plagued by serious osteoarthritis as I was, DO NOT delay in getting it treated, as it will worsen with time. Please make an appointment as this is the place to go if you want your life back!!!

  • right total hip replacement
I had a right total hip replacement on March 29th....4 months later I have my life back...pain free. I can dance, exercise, walk miles, walk in the sand. Dr.Lent is an incredible Surgeon. I had a speedy, uneventful recovery. The care and attention that me and my family received at the Westchester Orthopedic Center was far better than the care and outcome I received for my left a prominent surgical center in Manhatten.

  • ACL Repair
On August 29th, 2016 I tore my ACL in my left knee. I was referred to Dr. Lent by a retired nurse who stated that "Dr. Lent will make you whole again, for sure." And boy, was she not kidding. After the MRI of my knee I waited about a week for the results. Being an athlete my entire life and never sustaining a knee injury of any kind I was certain that it was just a bad sprain. When I visited Dr. Lent for the 1st time, he very kindly and graciously informed me that my ACL was indeed, "completely torn." I panicked and entered into a state of shock and dismay. Dr. Lent's calm, jovial, humane demeanor kept me calm and mentally stable. I KNEW he was THE BEST because initially he did not want to perform the surgery on my knee due to my age-- he suggested "3 months of therapy, first" and told me that if what happened to me had happened to HIM, that he "would not opt for the surgery at first." Because my knee was literally "buckling apart" at this point and I could not fathom the thought of never body-boarding, motorcycling, hiking, swimming, jet-skiing, running or even walking again, I opted for the surgery, which was performed by the great Dr. Lent on September 23rd. The procedure was ambulatory and arthroscopic in nature and I was out of the hospital in a few hours. Today is December 1st and I have 85% mobility in my left knee, can walk up and down the stairs without pain or struggle and can even throw a front-kick with ease. Thanks to Dr. Lent and his amazing, in-house physical therapist, Mr. Patrick Evia I am practically back to my former self only better, stronger and soon to be, faster. *IF ANYONE READING THIS REQUIRES ANY KIND OF KNEE, LIGAMENT, TENDON, NECK or BACK SURGERY, THERAPY or even just a CONSULTATION, SEEK NO FURTHER AND REST EASY - DR. LENT WILL HEAL YOU AND MAKE YOUR LIFE EVEN BETTER THAN IT WAS BEFORE.

  • fractured wrist
The emergency room treatment at St. john's was quick, effective and very professionally provided. The medical treatment performed in the following days by Dr. Eric Spencer, including surgical insertion of support pins, was very helpful. Despite the damage to my wrist bones, I had little follow-up pain, was instructed in the best care including PT, and my wrist has recuperated quickly, much sooner than I would have predicted. Five stars!

  • straightened fingers
I had a condition where I could not straighten my fingers. Shaking hands or trying to retrieve anything from my pocket was impossible. The condition is know as Dupuytren's Contracture. It use to require surgery. In two office visits, Dr Spencer did a minor procedure which cured my situation. I was able to shake his hand and say thank you.

  • Total Hip Replacement
I would like to thank Dr. Lent, Dr. Spencer and the Staff of Westchester Orthopedics. I recently had a Total Hip Replacement, and I am amazed at how quickly I am recovering. For 6 months prior to surgery, I was in agonizing pain...nothing helped, not pain pills, not pain management. My quality of life was quickly diminishing, and I am only 51 years old. I was constantly cancelling family plans, and had a hard time making it into work every day. I couldn't sleep; I would just pace the night away, praying for some relief somehow. It has only been about 11 weeks since surgery, and I am a new person! I received the best care at the hospital. The wonderful staff at St. John's in Dobbs Ferry got me up on the same day I had surgery! I had therapy at home for a couple of weeks, and continued physical therapy in office for a few more. I have already been able to increase my walking to 2 miles a day! I cannot thank Drs. Lent and Spencer enough for giving me back my life!


  • knee replacment
As a heavy duty bus mechanic I do a lot of bending kneeling and squatting at work . 5 months to the day of surgery I was able to return to full duty at work with a brand new knee . at 60 years old I thought I would have to retire but Dr Lent has given me a new lease on life . I no longer wake up at night due to the pain in my knee and no loner take daily med's for pain.
