What People Say About Dr. Ettore Vulcano, MD

Dr Vulcano did a minimally invasive surgery for achilles tendinitis that had been bugging me for 7 years. I went to see him for a second opinion after another surgeon had recommended a big procedure to completely open my tendon followed by almost 2 months of no walking. I ended up trusting dr vulcano who said I would be walking 2 weeks after surgery....and I did. At 2 weeks I started PT and at 6 weeks I was in a sneaker. I am very happy with the outcome and highly recommend to see dr Vulcano

Dr Volcano and his staff are top notch. I had flatfoot reconstruction 6 months ago...I was so flat I was basically walking on the inside of my ankle. The doctor explained the options I had clearly and in layman terms. I am glad to have picked him as my surgeon. Shout out to his amazing assistant, Rosie!

I cannot say enough about my experience with Dr. Vulcano. I came to see him after watching a story about him and his procedure on Nightly News. From the moment I walked into his office, I knew I was in the right place. Dr. Vulcano explained everything to me in terms I understood. I had two surgeries three months apart on my bunions and happy to say my recovery was everything he said it would be. I am in shoes now and almost 100% healed. Dr. Vulcano is a great surgeon and has a caring bedside manner. The office is wonderful...from the front desk to his assistants..everyone so sweet and caring ( just like him) I have recommended him to so many people already... Thank you Dr. Vulcano, Rosie and your staff for everything.

Having experienced bunion surgery the "old fashioned way" 6 years ago, I knew I needed to find an alternative for my next surgery because I could not be laid up for same length of time. I saw an NBC Nightly News segment that highlighted Dr. Vulcano's procedure and the success of his patients with minimal pain and faster recovery times. I scheduled my consult that week. I had my surgery 6 weeks ago. I am now in a sneaker, walking fairly normally, and cannot thank Dr. Vulcano and his staff enough for their kind treatment.

Dr. Vulcano is truly a master at his craft. After having a failed bunion surgery several years ago, I sought opinions from several other doctors to see if it could be corrected. Upon meeting Dr. Vulcano, I immediately knew that he was the surgeon for me. His level of knowledge and professionalism made me feel extremely confident that he would be able to correct the previous surgery. Boy was I right!! The surgery went smoothly and the pain was minimal. The follow up from the hospital and staff was second to none. I would unequivocally recommend Dr Vulcano to anyone in need of orthopedic surgery.

I had minimally invasive bunion surgery a few weeks ago. My experience and outcome have been fantastic, just as Dr. Vulcano promised! The day of surgery was better than expected. From the moment I arrived I was immediately seen by a complete team of caretakers - I barely had to wait! All the staff members were just so wonderful and pleasant to deal with! I just don’t have enough kind words. Post-surgery recovery and the healing process were also very manageable. The pain was minimal all-considering, and I was able to walk with a supportive boot and didn’t need crutches almost immediately. Scarring is also minimal, especially compared to traditional bunion surgery. Dr. Vulcano is truly a master of his craft!!! His assistant and his staff are also extremely helpful and supportive. Dr. Vulcano is a fantastic orthopedic surgeon! I highly recommend him and his practice! Thank you Dr. Vulcano for your amazing skills & wonderful care!

He is a nice, compassionate doctor. I had a surgery to correct a surgically deformed foot and crooked toes. The foot looks a little better but unfortunately, the surgery left me with a new problem, a kind of bunion. I can get another surgery or just live with the pain. I have been trying to live with the pain for over a year.

I still cannot believe what he was able to do with his minimally invasive technique. Incredible, my foot is completely reshaped. Recovery was so much better than I expected.
