I want to thank Dr. Wellman for performing seccseful procedure on my severely fractured right tibia plateau with use of stem cells extracted from my right hip. This option gave me chance to avoid devastating revision surgery to fix initially unsecseful surgery performed in Spian after a bad bike accident. Dr. Wellman caring and very talented professional and I’m so happy to have him as my doctor since he was available to stop my constant pain and limping. My life is became normal again!

Dr. Wellman is spectacular is all aspects, particularly his surgical ability and bedside manner. He has an amazing (and efficient) team as well (receptionists, assistants, nurses, radiology techs, etc). Dr. Wellman performed follow-up ankle surgery on me, and my recovery and return to function exceeded my expectations. If you look around the internet, you will find he has extremely high ratings. Believe them!

David Wellman is simply an outstanding orthopedic trauma surgeon committed to excellence at every level. He is young, energetic and committed to developing his reputation and achieving long term superior patient care and results. Moreover, he accepts a wide range of health insurers. I am now "back in the game" and my knee joint, which was severely dislocated, is, pain free, fully functional and enables me to live my life as I seek to.....I am grateful....

In 9/2012, I sustained multiple injuries in a bicycling accident in NJ, including broken hip, broken pelvis, fractured clavicle, severe head trauma, etc. Thankfully, my family transferred me to Weill Cornell from a NJ hospital. I am very grateful to Dr. Wellman who operated on my clavicle and treated my hip and pelvis. I have full and excellent range of motion all around. He saved me from being lame unlike NJ dr. would've. Dr. Wellman is Excellent, Attentive & Kind. Now, my 5 year anniversary.

Truly an amazing surgeon! If it was not for Dr. Wellman I am almost certain my father would never have been able to walk again. Dr. Wellman is kind, compassionate, patient, informative, and very professional. From the beginning, he provided outstanding quality of care that greatly surpassed my expectations. I cannot thank him enough for all he has done for us.

Spectacular doctor; He is caring, responsive, empathetic and available when necessary. I smashed my hip on New Year Eve and he put it together again so that I could have hip replacement. His office is responsive and his PA, Ethan Jensen is superb. DR Wellman is the essence of a great doctor; skilled, listens well, responds and cares.
