Dr. Selgrath is the all around package when it comes to surgeons/doctors! His care, the time he takes to answer all questions, as well as his surgical expertise are superior to any other physician I have seen in the past. I would highly recommend him to family and friends.

I originally became a patient of Dr. Selgrath's 3 years ago for my knee, I am an athlete so I am always getting hurt. Since then, I only go to him for every injury. He is very patient with me and always makes sure I have complete understanding before leaving the office. He has amazing bedside manner and I always know he will fix me! Highly recommended.

Compound fracture of my right ankle. I called 911 to get to a hospital and I was taken to Mercy Suburban Hospital, East Norriton. I worked with two thoracic surgeons at U of Penn. One said not to have surgery with Dr. Selgrath. Such pain, especially after fixation. NO time to review Selgrath, who is a DO! After all of my rod and screws were in place, I was sent for rehab. My ankle was worse, I went to Dr. Wapner at Penn, he x-ray and said IT'S STILL BROKEN. Surgery, andnow PAIN.
