From the first office visit, through hip replacement surgery and follow up visits everything ran like clockwork. Office appointments were on time and all questions answered. Surgery was ambulatory and I was home in a matter of hours. P/T was arranged for in home care and recovery went well.

Extremely efficient, every question was answered prior to surgery. No surprises, professional staff from the first phone call to my follow up staple removal! My expectations were more than I could have hoped for. I am so happy I chose the Drs. Romanowski and ECMC! A great team of nurses cared for me following my TKR. The PT the morning after was encouraging and stimulating. Follow up by VNA, PT, Joanna, at home continues to complete my rehab and the culmination of a successful outcome! Thank you Dr.Cindy and Dr.Marcus Rebecca

At 70, this hip replacement procedure was my very first surgery. From our first meeting to going home, this was a great experience. Dr. Marcus Romanowski and Dr. Cindy Romanowski gave me complete information and made me feel very confident I made the right choice. Marcus stated he did not need my comment, " Good Luck" he stated he had confidence in his procedures and operating staff. The day after surgery, home and working with a physical therapist , Joanna, was perfect, and thanks to all, I'm already swinging a golf club,(slowly). And, A Special Thank You to the nurses and staff at ECMC, they were spot on with my overnight recovery. ( Wish I could remember all the names) I would definitely recommend Dr. Romanowski and the EMMC team to everyone, Thank you,

I had a full right knee replacement in September of 2020 by Dr Marcus Romanowski. Can't say enough good things about him, Dr Cindy Romanowski who organized the procedure and the office staff. All very professional and made me feel at ease during this time. I would recommend this practice to anyone.

Drs. Marcus Romanowski and Cindy Romanowski are absolutely the best from first appointment through post-surgical appointment. I have had both knees totally replaced and got my life back...dancing, gardening, walking, etc. They are both very caring and professional, as are their PA’s and office staff. I was very fortunate to have Michael Dimitri as my in-home physical therapist both times and he is wonderful. He is empathetic, but gets the job done. He pushes you just enough to show you how far you can go. Within a very short time period you are up and walking as if nothing happened. Michael is extremely competent and I believe 100% that my quick recovery was due to his diligence and knowledge.

I highly recommend Dr. Romanowski and his entire staff. I have been a patient here since 2010 and I have had the best care at this facility. I 've had a hip replacement and a knee replacement. All the details for the surgery are handled by a very knowledgeable and friendly staff. There is no guess work when it comes to the step-by-step instructions given prior to surgery or the rehab instructions after surgery. Their rehab employees are great, as well. If you are looking for a wonderful Orthopedic doctor and staff for your needs, you should absolutely call Dr. Marcus and Dr. Cindy Romanowski's practice , you won't be sorry.

very detailed and professional. Entire staff was excellent in each of their fields for preparation of surgery. The prep class performed by Dr. Cindy Romanowski was right on target. All of the PA's were excellent. The PT provider from VNA Tim Anderson extremely helpful. Dr Romanowski was the perfect surgeon, plus I had both knees replaced at the same time.

Dr. Marcus and Dr. Cindy Romanowski are amazing!!! They care about their patients from start to finish. At first I went for injections in my knees to relieve the pain. After a few years, I was re-x-rayed. I was (am) bone on bone in both my knees. My right knee total replacement went better than expected. I am now at 5 weeks post surgery and doing excellent. Once I have full use of my right knee back, I will not hesitate to have my left knee replacement. My surgery was done at the Snyder Surgical Center at the ECMC complex. It's an amazing place to have surgery with a caring staff. My surgery was at 8:30 am, and I came home the same day, and by 2:30 in the afternoon I had a Physical Therapist at my home. The VNA PT was amazing, and the reason why I am doing so well! Not only are they great doctors, but all their staff are just as caring!

My husband had his hip replaced 8 weeks ago by Dr. Romanowski. He was so confident that Dr. Romanowski was the right choice after meeting him and the team of professionals that worked together to help him. From the start to finish they were great and he's much more mobile now without the pain he had been experiencing before surgery. Highly recommended.

I had my left hip replaced by Dr. Romanowski recently. In my opinion the best surgeon in Buffalo. Everything went well and his staff helped me all along the way. I cannot believe how good I feel. All pain is gone and I feel "normal" again. Recovery was fast and easy for me.

This office and all the staff are fantastic!! Dr. Marcus replaced my right hip and the process was incredibly smooth with recovery taking way less time than usual. Dr. Cindy did a wonderful job with therapy and recommendations. They are both fantastic and go above and beyond. I highly recommend them for knee or hip issues. If they aren't the first place you go, they will be the last.

Dr Romanowski and hs entire staff are excellent. My hip replacement went exactly as planned and recovery was very quick. The physical therapy team, especially Tyler Ray provided by Dr Cindy Romanowski provided excellent post surgery treatment. The class provided by Dr Cindy Romanowski was especially valuable in providing early insight into the entire surgical/recovery process. Excellent team.

Dr. Marcus Romanowski and his wife, Dr. Cindy Romanowski, have an extremely efficient and professional practice. Every question was answered and everything ran just as addressed. I had a total knee replacement in March and couldn't be happier with the results. My physical therapist, Joanna, was also the best. I would definitely recommend this practice to anyone needing knee or hip replacement.
