I saw Dr. Melillo 7 years ago for a rotator cuff complaint. To avoid surgery, he initially tried a steroid injection and referred me to a chiropractor. My insurance didn't go for it, so he ordered an MRI, found the cuff was torn, and I got to pick my date. Dr. Melillo's staff took care of everything, he was great to work with through the months of recovery. I went back 4 years ago for the other arm and Dr. Melillo was using newer technology. I have full recovery, chinups, overhead lifts...

Very disappointed in results of Achilles surgery for repair of full rupture. Staph infection four weeks out of surgery. Expressed alarm from slow-healing surgical wound throughout those four weeks. Surgeon response each week was fairly dismissive. Two hospitalizations from staph infection. Then additional FHL tendon transfer surgery with a different surgeon. Original surgery June 2016. Just now recovering at a decent level. A nightmare of an experience.

Doctor Melillo has worked on both my knees. Amazing is the way I describe the results of his work. It was like a light switch was flipped as to the pain I was experiencing. His staff are professional and caring. He was recommended by a friend and I was and am happy I found him.
