Hurt my knee 2-1/2 years ago and contacted Sports Medicine & Associates. I opted for an injection in the knee and it helped immediately. Lasted for nearly 2 years, knee was stable and very little pain. Just came back and had another injection, hope this one works as well as the first.

Dr D suggested I try PRP for my aging knees. It’s a painless procedure with tremendous results. I tell everyone one I know who suffers from normal wear and tear like myself. Thanks Dr. D for always helping me and my family.

Dr. D’s office makes you feel comfortable right away. from the staff to the cleanliness of the office, i felt very comfortable with my time there. and then Dr. D himself is extremely comforting, empathetic, and makes you feel like you’ve known him your entire life. i hope to NOT see him again for any unfortunate reasons but, if i had to, i would feel beyond comfortable and know that i’m in good hands.

Dr. Desimone has been our family orthopedic for many years. He is a true professional who cares about his patience’s well being. His staff are excellent and accommodating. He is a Sports Medicine Specialist which Is important for me and my family. We are extremely active and his goal is to fix our injuries and get us back to our regular physical activities asap. We just left his office and he gave our daughter a green light for her to participate in dance competition again. :)
