Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Romanowski "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."

I have seen Dr. Romanowski several times for knee related problems. He is very thorough as is his staff. They are also very pleasant. I have referred him to other people I know.

Dr. R replaced both of my knees, approximately 8 months apart. He exhausted all treatment methods prior to surgery. I was 69 at the time & back at work in 5 wks. He is a strong advocate of avoiding opoids, which DO result in a quicker, more positive recovery. Also a stickler about post-surgical PT...more

Both of my femurs broke in 2015. Dr. Romanowski operated on both femurs and put rods in them. He is a great doctor. My legs are prefect today because of him. He also gives me gel shots in both knees. They feel great. No more pain. He is so personal. He is not the kind of doctor that rushes...more
