Washington, DC |
He is an excellent surgeon if you like being part of an assembly line. I scheduled surgery and never heard from anyone again till the day before surgery . His surgical coordinator does not answer phone or email. Once in the hospital anything she told me was not done. Pain meds were hard to come by after surgery in the hospital. It was horrible.

I had a total hip replacement May 12th 2017. I can't say enough about the whole team from the Doctors, OR Staff and hospital staff. I was never in pair too long or needed anything.
Ellicott City, MD |
Waiting about 2 hours. No explanation or apology from the staff or the doctor. 7 minutes visit with no discussions. Very disappointed.
in Walkersville, MD |
I'm a 49 year old female that needed a hip replacement due to labrum tear and shallow hip sockets. 7 months out from surgery I and doing everything I love! About a year before my surgery walking more than .5 miles was painful, bringing in the groceries and sleeping. I was very hesitant about the surgery but dr. Ciatola assured me after healing I could go back to the active lifestyle I was use to. I can easily walk 3 .5 miles an hour, exercise, and bike! Love his expertise!

Dr. Citola has gone above and beyond in helping our family with wrist and knew operations. His bedside manners are very personal, kind, understandable and professional. We are very thankful for Dr. Citola and highly recommend him.

I had an anterior hip replacement performed by Dr. Ciotola on February 14, 2017 at Mercy Hospital. I left the hospital the very next day. I had very minimal pain throughout. Most significantly, two days after the surgery I was walking unaided: no walker, no cane. I was able to drive my car three days after surgery. Anyone considering hip replacement surgery should definitely explore the newer anterior approach as opposed to having the surgery done through the back. Much faster recovery

I had the anterior hip replacement. I was never made aware of the potential nerve damage associated with this procedure. Unfortunately, my lfcn was damaged when the surgical incision was made. I have suffered for 4 years with burning, throbbing pain in my thigh. I used to be an active person. I now spend most of my days on a couch. This surgery has negatively impacted my life and made me mistrust Dr. Ciotola.
in Columbia, MD |
Dr. Ciotola is in my experience and excellent surgeon. He replaced both of my knees. Recovery has been minimal and he is very willing to explain whatever you need.
