Fantastic doctor in every area a patient would want a doctor to be. Shows great compassion, listens to every concern you have, answers all questions, and spends time with his patients. Just 2 months out from tendon repair surgery on my elbow, and I am doing and feeling great. I had some concerns,but Dr Aita and his team made this surgery feel like a piece of cake. Office staff always makes you feel welcome and are ready to assist you with any questions you have. Thanks to The Rothman Institute and Dr Aita I am a grateful patient and Highly recommend this office to anyone seeking orthopedic help.Its a great feeling knowing you are going to a trusted doctors office.

Dr. Aita performed surgery of my hand to remove a calcified growth. The surgery was successful, with very minimal scarring. The followup care was excellent, even during the COVID-19 pandemic!

Dr. Aita is the best. He sincerely cares about his patients. He explains his diagnosis in detail. He is a wonderful surgeon. He operated on my wrist and later on my shoulder and my outcome was excellent. I recommend him very highly.

Very attentive, caring physician. I'm thrilled with my operative results and have already referred a family member to Dr. Aita also. I would not do that for a doctor in whom I did not have complete trust and respect.

My son had fractured his right hand and needed surgery. Dr.Aita thoroughly explained to my son and I how he was going to fix it and what the steps will be in the recovery process. We have seen him for the third time now, and he continues to present himself as a very patient, caring doctor with A+ professionalism. If you want to have a doctor who is extremely knowledgeable in his medical profession and who understands your needs, call Dr. Aita! He is the best!

I had broken my wrist just before Memorial Day week. I could find no one in my area to help. A friend helped to arrange for an appointment with Dr. Aita at the Rothman Institute about 40 miles away. I was in pain and frightened. Dr. Aita and his staff were warm and caring. Right from the introduction I knew I was in good hands. His attention to each detail made me confident that I would be back to 100% in time. Thank you Dr. Aita! I followed your instructions and now back to playing with my grandchildren!

Dr Aita (TOG at Rothman Institute)performed complex hand surgery on my mother for a fractured wrist in April of 2019. She was 89 years old at the time of the surgical procedure. His professionalism and expertise put my mother at ease. Throughout the entire preoperative and postoperative period, he kept us informed and explained all of the details regarding her recovery. Knowing that my mother was being treated by Dr Aita made such a difference in the entire experience. We are appreciative for the excellent care she received and would highly recommend Dr Aita to family and friends.
