Dr. Raffo's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Raffo "I specialize in the treatment of adult and pediatric sports medicine and orthopedic disorders. Surgically, I specialize in arthroscopic shoulder and knee surgery. My practice philosophy is to treat each patient in a professional, cordial, and both time and cost-efficient manner. I coordinate care with a team of athletic trainers and physical therapists to provide comprehensive orthopedic care in the office, employing the latest techniques (such as PRP) to rehab your injuries in a non-surgical environment. When surgery is necessary,you will get the most modern arthroscopic techniques (when appropriate). Finally, our office culture is geared around customer service. We are constantly trying to improve our office based experience. We understand that everyone's life is busy and we make the appointment about you."

I had a shoulder replacement surgery with Dr Raffo five weeks ago, I am already driving and doing everything by myself, he was wonderful and caring, I had the best experience, the pain management was unbelievable, I never took one pain killer!! I would recommend him to my family and friends. E. M

Such a smart and knowledgable Doctor. Helped me with my knee and shoulder problem. I was impressed that he was not accepting of the radiology report of my MRI. Most of my doctors in the past would never go against the report but he was not convinced of his findings. Very up to date with newest info...more
