Auburn, MA |
Excellent Doctor, great bedside manner, good communicator and highly skilled in his profession. Planning on a knee surgery after he did a great job on my shoulder. I had one other great orthopedic surgeon and a real lemon in the past. They are not all created equal.

Dr. Vinton was recommended by my primarycare physician. Dr. Vinton did my second knee replacement, rotator cuff and reattatched my bicep surgeries. He is kind,competent and fun. My recovery was fast! Highly recommend Dr. Vinton. Thankyou.
in Grafton, MA |
I sustained a trimalleolar break and dislocation of my left foot on Feb. 3rd and had open reduction and internal fixation. Dr. Vinton and his team are knowlegable, professional, compassionate and extremely competent. I highly recommend him.
Worcester, MA |
Dr. Vinton did rotator cuff surgery on my left shoulder in May of 2013. I returned to Dr. Vinton in December 2016 to have my rotator cuff surgery on my right shoulder done. So recovery has been slow with some other medical setbacks PT has been delayed. Dr. Vinton is the best in his field. Knows what he's doing. Answers questions. Good bedside manners. I would definitely recommend Dr. Vinton to family and friends.

Struggled with debilitating hip pain for 2 years. Prior orthopedics missed the diagnosis. Dr. Vinton diagnosed and confirmed the problem immediately. I was in surgery shortly later and got my life back because of him. I wouldn't be walking without his knowledge and skill as a surgeon. I'm now less than one year out of surgery and am back to living a very active lifestyle. I've never been more impressed with a Dr. in my life (and have seen many due to 13 fractures and two prior surgeries).
in Holden, MA |
Dr. Vinton came highly recommended from two other orthopedic surgeons, and proved to excel in skill and compassion in treating an extensive hip injury. I have nothing but the highest of regard for his professionalism and expertise. I would not hesitate sending friends and family to him for care.
