My Doctor, Dr. Cannizzaro, did a compartment release and nerve release for chronic compartment syndrome in February, I went back today for the same surgery (fasciotomy) on my other leg. He is an amazing doctor who really gave me my life back as far as being able to exercise again. I recommend him for anyone with compartment syndrome. He also takes his time to explain everything and is very approachable with any questions or concerns. I would recommend him to anyone needing an Ortho Doctor.

I chose this physician as I knew he was an expert in the field of ACL reconstruction. My surgery went very well with good follow up, prompt referral to PT and quick response to issues regarding pain control. I spiked a fever one night post op and received a phone call from an orthopedic attending on call promptly.

Felt rushed, what he told me wasn't what was on the note to my primary doctor, didn't offer anything else, three other staff in room and seemed to be more interested in impressing them with his computer knowledge
