Dr. Axelrod works with every patient to exhaust all methods of conservative care before suggesting surgery.If a condition does not respond to conservative therapies, we can consider additional treatment options that may include minimally invasive procedures or surgery. Over the last 35 years, Dr. Axelrod has assisted his patients through their entire road of rehabilitation and recovery. He alone sees his patients and follows them along their journey back to functionality, mobility and health.Read more

Dr Axelrod speaks to you in a confident way, not an arrogant way. He listens, advises and always asks for your input so that together you can reach a decision as to how to proceed with your care. He will do whatever he can to make you comfortable and prolong surgery until it is absolutely necessary. I travel over 50 miles to his office and find it is worth it.

Dr. Axelrod is a competent and compassionate individual with a smile and warm welcome. I have always been treated with respect and leave knowing what to expect in the future.
in Bridgeport, NY |
Dr. Axelrod has been my orthopedic surgeon for several years. I have arthritis in both knees but want to stay away from surgery for as long as possible. He's never tried to "talk me into" doing anything I wasn't ready to do, or push me into a procedure. Rather, he has helped me to stay on top of my pain and keep my mobility. I have had several injections, which are ALWAYS almost totally painless. His demeanor is very direct, which works for me. But he takes whatever time you need for questions.
in Liverpool, NY |
He replaced both my knees and I've been very pleased.

I have never had a better patient experience in a physician's office. From beginning to end the visit felt patient centric rather than physician centric. I would not hesitiate to highly recommend Dr. Axelrod, specifically, and SOS, generally, to anyone.

in Clay, NY |
In May of 2016, Dr. Axelrod performed a total knee replacement on my right knee. Prior to the surgery he talked to me and made sure to explain to me the surgery and the recovery. He made it quite clear the importance of the physical therapy and made sure that I was committed to going through the entire process. In the end he was correct on all points.
in Liverpool , NY |
I saw Dr Axelrod for follow-up for a fractured kneecap. He explained what the situation was and told me what to expect and what treatment was indicated. I liked the way he treated me and how he approached the treatment that was indicated. Fortunately surgery was not needed. I appreciate that he did not over-treat the case. He was honest and upfront with me and was pleasant in his discussions. If I ever do need Orthopedic Surgery I would definitely want him to handle it.

GREAT JOB, GREAT GUY. I WOULD RECOMMEND DR. AXELROD TO ANYONE, THOUGH I DON'T THINK IT'S NECESSARY BECAUSE SO MANY PEOPLE RECOMMENDED HIM TO ME.
in Oswego, NY |
Very friendly, knowledgeable and caring. Dr. Axelrod explained all the options that were available for my situation so I could make an informed decision. When I finally decided to have surgery Dr. Axelrod went into great detail about the surgery and answered all my questions that I had about the surgery. I have had a great outcome from the surgery and I highly recommend Dr. Axelrod.

Dr. Axelrod made us feel very comfortable with his recommendation for my daughter's surgery. He never made us feel rushed and was happy to explain and re-explain the process to us.
in Syracuse, NY |
Very matter of fact and honest. Good at answering any questions and attentive follow up after surgery. I had a knee replacement and would do another with him again if needed.
