Las Vegas, NV |
I had a horrific knee injury. Kneecap ended up in my groin. Multiple ligament tears. I called a friend who works with knee implants etc. and asked who he thought was best knee surgeon in LV. He said Balduini and I have to agree. The procedure took several hours longer due to him meticulously going thru my knee fixing not just the immediate problem but decades of other issues...bone chips, scar tissue, etc. It healed great and once fully healed (8-9 months) had no pain or range of motion loss.

I was a trauma patient taken to the ER with a fractured femur. The first surgery failed - reduction was lost and the hardware was out of position resulting in damage to my hip ball and socket. I had 3 surgeries in 5 1/2 weeks. It is now 10 months after my hospitalization and I cannot walk without pain and without the assist of a cane or walker. I cannot help but wonder if I would have had a better outcome with another surgeon. I will never know. I curse the process that placed me with him

Dr. Balduini treated my right knee for several years, & as it progressively worsened, I made up my mind to have it replaced. Dr. Balduini never pushed me toward surgery, but always said, I would know when it was time...which I finally did. He is very compassionate, pays close attention to detail & is an exceptional surgeon. In spite of unexpected challenges, my arthroplasty went well thanks to the Dr. & after 8 weeks of recovery, my "new" knee never felt better!

I'm writing a review to demonstrate that Dr. Balduini's quality work stands the test of time. 30 years ago my father took me to Dr. Balduini for my morton's neuroma. The doctor excised it successfully. 30 years later it's still doing great. I now have more neuromas in different spots and I am thinking of traveling from MD to the NV because I've heard so many horror surgeries resulting in stump neuromas which are just as bad as the neuroma itself. Thanks Dr. Balduini for your quality work!

Did both of my knees and results are great. Great care and bedside matter. Would definitely recommend Dr. Balduini.

Horrible outcome from a botched surgery. Avoid this wicked mans deceiving manipulations. The shoulder surgery did nothing but leave me in excruciating pain, thousands of dollars in debt and with the most nasty looking scar ever. Mr. Balduini had no problem lying to my face scaming me an innocent victim just to perform a needless surgery in order to get paid; ;ruining my life in the process.

He was the best doctor ,very patient caring,and knowledgeable person. It's hard to find such doctors who treat their patients with care and not weigh them with money.
in Henderson, NV |
Dr. Balduini did a fantastic job replacing my knee. While I was in the hospital my range of motion and strengths were so good it inspired the Physical Therapist's to add exercises and take me on nice long walks. When I greeted my Home Health Physical Therapist at the front door and got him comfortable at the kitchen table he asked me where the patient was! I was walking that good. I had heard Dr. Balduini was a great surgeon and now I'm living proof of his dedication to excellence.
