My husband and I have both been patients of Dr. Susini for several years. His care has always been excellent and I had no qualms in seeking his advice and treatment concerning serious knee pain. After the appropriate examination, xrays, etc. he explained my options and we decided a total knee replacement was the best answer. He replaced my knee in November and the experience has been very positive. His care and that of his staff, the hospital and rehab staff were and continue to be excellent

Dr. Susini is a very professional, thorough & caring physician. I had surgery on my knee to repair a crack in my femur bone & remove cartilage that had broken off. He always took the time to go over & explain everything to me & what to expect as a result. I have great confidence in him & highly recommend him as an Orthopedic Surgeon.

I have been a patient of Dr. Susini for many many years & highly recommend him to everyone. He has done surgery on my husband & myself. I recently had total knee replacement and had nothing but the best of care from him, the hospital & the physical therapists.
in Sierra Vista, AZ |
From my first visit with Dr. Susini I knew I needed a knee replacement. It has been 4 weeks since my surgery. I couldn"t be happier with the results. From the nurses who called to schedule appointments to the physical therapists, they were all helpful, friendly and courteous. Dr. Susini listened to all my questions and concerns and explained everything step by step to me. I highly recommend Dr. Susini and his office, you won"t be disappointed in the care they give you.

Dr. Susini performed a full hip replacement on me, at the end of September 2015. After a normal recovery, building up the muscles in my hip with constant exercise for the first couple of months. It is now November 2016 with zero pain for the last for the last 11 months. I just turned 70 years old and can walk like I used to when I was 30. Overall it is the best thing to happen to me, second to marrying my wife.

Cochise County has been my home since 1987. I enjoy living here, the community, the climate and environment. I am an avid cyclist. Frequently you will see me riding on the roads or mountain biking on the trails of our county. Other activities that I enjoy are diving, kayaking, and hiking. I also like listening to music and playing the guitar.

I am blessed to have my wife, Rhonda, six children, and four grandchildren to enhance the joy in my life.
