My mother had the partial knee surgery by Dr. Repicci over 25 years ago. She’s now 95 and walking well with only occasional pain. The surgery was easy to recover from and she went on a trip to Paris and walked all over after only 6 weeks. Wish more doctors would perform this procedure rather than taking the whole knout!

I had a partial knee replacement by Dr Repicci in 2002. Have never had a problem. Walked around track on Relay for Life the day after surgery. And have not looked back. It seems like a natural knee nearly 15 years later. Highly recommend this surgery. Why change your whole knee when only one part of it is bad?

Dr. Repicci had no bedside manner and was extremely insensitive with his comments that he made. He spent very little time with me and was very abrupt in his mannerisms.

Dr. Replica replaced 2 hips for me 1 in 2002 and 1 in 2016. Both times my operation Turned out great and returned to work the first time in 6 weeks and the second time in retired but felt great after 8 weeks. The more active you are the faster hips heal I learned. But listen to your Doctor.

He is professional. Takes time to understand patient issues. He would not operate on my hip when he learned I had several teeth removed 2 weeks prior. My mouth had not healed completely. Postponed surgery for 2 weeks. I was next for the OR and he sent me home avoiding possible infection. My surgery was difficult with a few glitches. Just 3 weeks later I am nearly pain free.
