Dr Perricelli did two knee replacements on me. One in January 2017 and the other knee recently on October 5, 2017. My recoveries on both knees were incredible. He is extremely personable. He actually called me personally each night prior to my surgeries to touch base with me! His staff is excellent and his Physician Assistant Aaron is just wonderful. During my outpatient PT, I saw other recovering knee replacement patients done by other Drs and my progress seemed much more ahead of the game.

Went for a sevond opinion for my knee and he was arrogant, rude and completely dismissive of my concerns. Complete waste of time

I had both my total hip replacement done by Dr Perricelli this year, on 2/14 & 5/30/17. I couldn‘t believe how managable the pain was post surgery, thanks to his Pain Management Protocol. My family & friends were amazed how quickly I recovered. The entire experience was great. I am so grateful to have the quality ofnlife back!

Absolutely the right doctor for hip and knee replacements. Pain management is excellent. He is very responsive when you need a question answered. He is highly respected in the medical community. I am elated with my progress from my total hip replacement

Dr. Perricelli is an excellent physician, and a very kind, caring Dr. I had both of my knees replaced in the past two years. Prior to the surgery, I was over weight and he kindly suggested that I lose some weight so that I will get the most benefit from my new knees. I still appreciate our conversation because it was the best advice ever! I can do so much now and I am healthier in every way. He treats the total patient. I highly recommend Dr. Perricelli!

Dr. Perricelli did an excellent job on my hip replacement. I was back to a very active lifestyle within 90 days of surgery. I would highly recommend Brett to anyone in need of a procedure such as mine.

My husband has had 2 hip replacements by Dr. Perricelli. One was 2 years ago to replace a degenerative hip, the other was done 1 month ago. The most recent replacement was to redo one he had done 11 years ago by another doctor. Dr. Perricelli's pain management program is unbelievable......my husband took regular Tylenol for 3 days post surgery, that was it. He has a great bedside manner. His staff is top notch. If I ever moved and needed a new hip or knee, I would fly back just to see him.

Dr Perricelli did my hip surgery less than 3 weeks ago. I had no pain and had my first follow up visit yesterday. All the x-rays showed everything was good and the incision healed beautifully. I have been pain free throughout and would have done this a year ago if I knew how successful this wold be. I feel so great and my mobility is awesome. I have to remember to take it easy because I do feel so well. I will sing his praises for all he's done to give me my health back. Thanks, doc!!!

After careful review of available options and surgeons to address my debilitating knee pain, I chose to have a total knee replacement by Dr. Pericelli eight weeks ago. I have progressed steadily as predicated by Dr. Perricelli, free of complications and expect to enjoy a more mobile, pain free future. Thank you to all involved in my care. It truly has been a game changer!
in Pittsburgh, PA |
Dr. Perricelli is the most thorough, and professional surgeon I have ever met. Yet he has been very personable and open in his communications with me. Dr. Perricelli is the best!

I had a right hip replacement done at another hospital, it was difficult to get through the recovery and was very frustrating. I decided to go to Dr. Perriceli for my other hip replacement after the pain was awful. He was well worth the wait! He took the time, answered my list of questions, showed me the xrays and the replacement parts. I was only in the hospital for overnight. The recovery was much easier than the other side. He even called me before and after surgery.

Dr. Perricelli's strengths are his training, his sterilization protacol, his bedside manner, his follow up care, his home home care team, and his response to the concerns of his patient. I have just had my second knee replacement. I would not go to any other Doctor. He had years of practice in trauma surgery. I had extremely bowed legs. He straightened my legs. They look so great. I have no mechanical problems. He listens to your concerns and responses immediately. He sees you ASAP.

Dr. Pericelli is "THE BEST". Would not go to another Orthopedic Dr. He did a GREAT job on my hip and made me a new person. Thank You Dr. Pericelli, I can enjoy life now
in Moon Township, PA |
Dr. Perricelli replaced my hip 15 months ago ... before, during and after the procedure he was extremely professional, courteous and compassionate. He called the night before surgery to tell me he would take good care of me ... and he did. Never looks at this watch during an appointment. The strongest pain medication that I ever took was extra strength Tylenol. This guy is the best!
Pittsburgh, PA |
He did my knee replacement 2 years ago and I have seen him the past two years for my follow up. He is kind caring and a very good doctor. I have had no problems with my replacement and he has been very responsive to any concerns I have had. I highly recommend him.

My husband's knee was so bowed out for years he had so much pain and he was so nervous about having knee surgery. We heard about Dr. Parricelli and my husband met with him and liked him immediately. We read about Dr. Perricelli accomplishments and decided this was the doctor for him. everyone is amazed how he has made it through surgery very little pain he did his exercises faithfully all of our neighbors cannot believe how strait my husbands leg is. He can now ride a bike, steps no trouble

Dr. Perricelli is kind, ,caring and experienced. I saw him on multiple occasions for injections of cotizone and synvisc rooster injections. Eventually I had him replace my knee, it was a very easy process, his office staff, St. Clair hospital and home nursing team are the best in the business. I would recommend he and his team to anybody!!! I wish i did it sooner.
in Venetia, PA |
Dr Perricelli replaced my right knee. I had a very difficult knee condition where I had a 20 degree extension contracture combined with a 15 degree valgus position. His experience in revision surgery and technique of pain control gave me confidence with him. He cares for all of his patients and shows it through his pre and post surgical behaviors. I had very little pain through the whole process, amazing. All of the physical therapy and hospital nurses rave about how well his patients do.

Dr. Perricelli replaced my adult son's hip. He was extremely patient and kind to my son, who is intellectually disabled. It was a very difficult time made better by Dr. Perricelli's skill and compassion. Dr. Perricelli also replaced both of my knees. Several personal friends also had replacement surgery with excellent outcomes. I would highly recommend Dr. Perricelli.

Dr. Perricelli is great. I had a bad problem with my trick knee for years, pain and limping. After years of putting up with it I am a new person thanks to Dr. Perricelli. He always had a smile on his face, always compassionate ready to listen and cares...alot. I have my life back!!! What doctor calls you the night before surgery and then also calls you after you leave the hospital to just check in?!?! He is professional, compassionate and treated me like his mother. Highly recommend.
I saw Dr Perricelli on two occasions a year apart. Both visits all he wanted to do was give me a cortisone injection in my knee even though i had an MRI showing that i had a torn meniscus. I told him i have not had relief with the injections but he insisted on giving me the injection. He was very rude and arrogant and would not recommend him to anyone.
