Dr Sacco is a great Dr. He has been treating for knee pain we tried many conservative therapies first even a minor surgery to try and relieve my symptoms. Had a total knee replacement 3 weeks ago and I'm so happy I did this. My range of motion is excellent. He always spends enough time in the room with me and explains what is going on and what he expects of me. I would highly recommend him to friends and family

Broke my wrist, Dr Sacco set it in a cast for 1 month. After removing the cast, sent me to Physical Therapy. For 2 month I complained to Dr Sacco & assistants, I was still in great pain, swollen & my hand & fingers numb. I was told that you need an MRI to see ligament damage, but he did not order one.. I went for second opinion, immediately had an MRI.. And Surgery 2 weeks later to re-break my wrist with a plate, reattach ligament & carpel tunnel. Surgery to fix Dr. Sacco botched job! STAY AWAY

Dr Sacco is is a great surgeon Care is completely appropriate and he is kind and considerate. Spends time explaining diagnosis and test results. Allows time for your questions and concerns. My estimation of any negative review is perhaps the PT didn't hear what they wanted to hear and want to blame their own misconceptions on the dr. I have found him nothing but considerate and has great concern for his pts welfare. And yes he did knee surgery for me and I have had excellent results.

Needed a hip replaced and never got it. Every time i went to him he would send me for shots. I wasted 7 months on this clown. I finally went to another orthopedic last month and I'm having surgery in 2 weeks. Stay away

Dr. Sacco is a caring, considerate doctor who only has his patients' best interests at heart. He was forthright and honest with me in discussing options for my knee pain. He is the kind of doctor you want to have in your corner. For anyone to say he is unsympathetic is a total misjudgment of character.

Health grades will not allow me to put into words how strongly I feel anyone should avoid this doctor at all costs. I had the life changing misfortune of running into him in the ER, and I can just say he is a sadistic, unsympathetic butcher, with no patient empathy whatsoever
