    Dr. Melone ruined my career and passion. DO NOT get wrist surgery with Dr. Melone if you are an athlete. I was riding BMX professionally and had a crash that resulted in a wrist injury. Dr. Melone confidently told me that he could do a procedure that would make my wrist stronger than when I was born. I made the mistake of trusting him and going into surgery. He did an unnecessarily complicated procedure that left my wrist crooked, painful, and has led to more problems than I had before surgery.

    I am a pianist. After sustaining multiple fractures in my finger, other doctors said that my finger would have to be fused. It's a miracle. I thank Dr. Malone every day for restoring my finger and for my return to the joy of making music.
