I felt very comfortable right away. I liked that he looked at the films with me there and explained what he saw. I've had both hips replaced by him, and I am completely satisfied with the full experience. I highly recommend anyone looking for hip surgery to consult with Dr. Capozzi.

I've been going to Dr. Capozzi and Kathy Pashos, his PA, for over 5 years and have found them to be responsive, caring and most of all, highly competent. Dr. Capozzi performed a total knee replacement on my right knee on September 24, 2018 and everything has been as expected.

Right hip replacement April 2018. I researched and even met with a trusted spine surgeon prior to choosing a hip surgeon. Upon asking who this surgeon would have his mother use, the answer was Dr. Capozzi, at Winthrop. Capozzi and his team were a blessing. Not only fine tuned veterans, compassionate and conservative; they like their job and hospital. Rare find. Prayed with Dr. Capozzi before heading to the operating room. Needless to say, the experience and outcome positive.

Dr. Capozzi performed my right-hip-replacement surgery on October 23, 2017. Thanks to his A+ efforts on my behalf, I am walking without pain ty this time (February 20, 2018) and have resumed essentially all of the activities I was unable to engage in prior to my surgery. A fine job indeed!
