Dr Penna performed biceps re-attachment surgery on me, at the forearm, using the "button" technique. The recovery was excellent and he only uses a splint...Not a full cast like some surgeons. This method had me back to limited duties in a short period of time. 2 years post op., my biceps tendon is stronger than before the surgery and I have no side effects from the surgery. Can barely see the scar. Dr Penna is a great surgeon, very informative and accommodating. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

I saw Dr. Penna for three visits. I can't say enough about the care I received. Very accurately diagnosed my problem, extremely easy to talk to, and took his time with me and made sure all my questions were answered - I didn't feel rushed at all. I would highly recommend him - definitely a five star doc.

I had my surgery 6 weeks ago and j could not be happier with my experience. Doctor Penna is not only one of the nicest people you will ever meet but he's one of the best surgeons around. I know this not only because I feel great but because when I went to physical therapy after the surgery numerous pts said doctor Penna was the best. They said that him and his partner Doctor Paci had a great track record and people had a tendency to heal more quickly with them with no complication!
