Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

I offer evidence-based, patient centered care. Having completed fellowships in sports medicine, as well as shoulder and elbow surgery, I have extensive experience in dealing with both "simple" and complex problems. My training in the both the United States and Europe has given me the exposure towards dealing with failed prior surgeries and unsatisfactory outcomes. I listen to the patient, and more importantly, work with the patient to understand the problem and achieve a satisfactory result. Work related trauma, recreational and professional athletic injuries, as well as degenerative problems that inevitably come with age fall within the broad spectrum of disorders that I treat. I offer particular expertise in minimally invasive surgery, arthroscopy, instability management, rotator cuff repair, arthritis and joint replacement, and complex issues related to failed prior procedures.Read more

My first visit was a new patient appointment for a shoulder problem in the morning. Dr R was about 45 minutes late. I could tell he was in a rush. His staff were friendly and apologetic though. He didn't explain my x-rays at all, and the physical exam was not at all thorough in my opinion. My husband was referred to him and had a similar interaction exam-wise. No explanation of how the joint works and a rushed manner. No advice given for pain management either...a key reason we were there.

Dr. Romanowski saw me a few weeks ago and even though I knew i would eventually need knee replacement, told me to first try a scoping surgery and clean out the area. I just had my surgery on 9/14/16 and he was great, he explained everything in detail to my husband and checked up on me after surgery. I would recommend him to all my friends.

Excellent experience. Took time to listen. Reviewed the MRI with me and answered all my questions. I had a meniscus tear and openly discussed conservative treatment understanding that I may ultimately have surgery. Would easily go back or refer a friend.
Hello, I wanted let everyone know how disappointed I am with Dr. Romanowski and his choice to leave an hour early rather than stay for my appointment I had scheduled with him. I had an appointment with Dr. Romanowski on a friday, at 11:50am. I received a call on Thursday, stating that he is cancelling my appointment (because he was leaving at 10:30am for the holiday). I'm in alot of pain and only needed a cortisone shot in my hand. I called the office to see if he would reconsider and the answer

I think he is an awesome surgeon. He explained everything to me in detail and also told me to think about it as far as the surgery if I needed to. I had elbow surgery and he and his staff took great care of me and I appreciate it. I highly recommend him or the practice in general because the staff and nurses are very nice and informative as well. Thanks so much. Trisha

My 9 yr old son broke his arm at school and had to have urgent surgery and Dr Romanoski was on call. Despite not being pediatrics, he was so amazing with him! He did a phenomenal job on Constantine's arm and after physical therapy he is good as new, and this was a horrific break, all the way through the bone requiring pins. I am a physician myself and was very impressed with Dr Romanowski. My patients see him for their orthopedic needs and all come back saying the same thing. I trust him.
in Rock Hill, SC |
He was very easy to talk with. He actually listened to what I was saying. He was very thorough and professional. He connected with me, I did not feel like an object to him, but a live person.

Dr. Romanowski is very compassionate, talks to you so you can understand, and has wonderful bedside manner. My mother is his patient and she tells everyone (and I mean everyone!) about him and how wonderful he is.

I had a bone spur, SLAP tear, and bicep tendon tear. After about one year, my shoulder almost feels like new. The previous Doctor I saw never diagnosed any of these problems.
