Orthopedic Surgery Frequently Asked Questions
"I experienced a severe tibia plateau fracture several years ago and my local orthopedic surgeon took a pass on performing the necessary surgery. Dr. Tornetta took me as a patient on a moment's notice and performed the surgery to repair my exploded tibia the next day! He is a gifted surgeon and a really nice guy. I hold him in the highest regard.
"Dr. Li performed 2 surgeries on my body in the past two years, a pectoralis major repair (shoulder) and a meniscus repair/ body part removal (knee). As a professional athlete I was pessimistic about my chances of maintaining my athleticism and being able to play at a high level again, but after Dr. Li successfully conducted these surgeries and got me back to exactly where I was before getting injured, I am not only grateful for the job he did but I am also ecstatic about continuing my career!"
My back pain is gone!
I've seen many surgeons before finally seeing Dr Tannoury. No one believed or understood the reason of my back pain. Dr Tannoury did lumbar fusion on 2 discs and now my pain is gone!
The personalized care that I received and the courtesy in which it was conducted was very very efficient. I really appreciate them, and I look forward to continue to have them service me in anyway - thank you. Have a good day.
It was so nice to meet a wonderful compassionate dr. Who is a professional in every sense of the word. And his PA Jennifer just as professional and caring I am to have surgery soon and Dr. Stein and his staff have been able to calm me down and that takes a lot
Dr. Creevy is great!!! Took time to listen and answer all my questions.
