Dr. Susini's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Susini "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."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Susini "My personal goals as a physician are patient safety, enhancing the total patient experience, and providing a positive, transforming medical experience. 

Since 1987, I have been practicing general orthopedics. Over 30 years, and performing over 500 surgeries per year, I have developed a wealth and depth of surgery knowledge, experience and skill.

Using and introducing the latest techniques and implants demonstrates my commitment to keeping up-to-date with the latest medical education and process improvements in orthopedic surgery. I am proud to be an early adopter of Zimmer's cutting edge total joint arthroplasty. I use the Persona Total Knee with FuZion Instrumentation and the Kinective Total Hip replacement with Forever Hip Technology. For sports medicine and arthroscopy, I utilize Arthrex instrumentation. For fracture care, I use Synthes Instrumentation. These and many more state- of- the- art techniques allow me to provide excellent quality surgical outcomes for every patient."

Patient Comments (34)

Dr. Susini has been my ortho guy for over 21 years, it all started when he replaced my hip in 97 and since he did both shoulders, scoped both knees and just did a total knee replacement for me. He is an outstanding surgeon and explains every thing to you in a way you can understand

This is the most unprofessional doctor. Never before have I been treated so rudely. Susini never spent more then five minutes with me and never clearly answer my questions. He dismissed my injury acting as though it was fake. He treated me unfairly and belittled my injury making me feel small....more
