What a wonderful experience, with a total knee replacement surgery. I never thought I would be using those words together. I had resisted the surgery for twenty years, visited many top doctors across the country, and tried various injections of cartilage replacing fluids. Finally my bone on bone pain and limited mobility made it obvious that I would be watching life pass me by, instead of living it. I heartily recommend Dr. Conguista, his staff and the facilities at St. Peter’s Hospital.

Dr. Congiusta is, not only the foremost orthopedic surgeon in the Ortho NY group, but he is a wonderful human being. His expertise was obvious to me, when I had hip replacement done, I had utmost faith that this surgeon was competent, thorough, and extremely personable. He cares for his patients as though they were family. He NEVER hesitates to take the time to answer all questions, and/or concerns presented to him, before and after the surgical procedure. Dr. Frank, is the best!

I am extremely happy with my surgery and recuperation, I thought Dr. Congiusta was very through in everything he did before surgery and after. His staff called every week after the surgery just to check on my recovery and wanted to know if I had any questions. I liked him very much and I would recommend him to anyone who needs an ortho doctor.

I have previously had Cortisone in my right knee in the past. Dr. Conguista is a terrific doctor who gave me cortisone shots in both knees. With all of the pain I have in other parts of my body, I can now walk pain free in reference to my knees! THANK YOU DR. CONGIUSTA! And I might add that my husband could not be happier with his knee replacement that Dr. Congiusta preformed in 2014! Thank you from both of us!

Very compassionate, takes time to listen. I found him to be very honest and encouraging in every step before surgery, in recovery and post surgery. I have recommended him to others.
