I cannot express the gratitude I have for Dr Vulcano. He is absolutely unique. He fixed my ankle arthritis, which prevented me to walk more than a few blocks. I can go for MILES now.

Not only did my surgery go perfectly, but I had the pleasure of knowing a gentleman. Doctor Vulcano is charming, compassionate, and exquisite. I had a new percutaneous surgery that worked magic. Years ago I had had "traditional" surgery on my other foot and I recall a much longer (and painful)...more
