Dr Ciccotti is an amazing knee surgeon. 8 years later, the knee in which replaced my ACL is stronger and smoother than my other knee. My recovery was much easier than I expected, and I was back to soccer faster than most anyone said I could be. I can't say enough good things about his skills.

Dr. Ciccotti performed my ACL reconstruction surgery. Prior to surgery he was extremely comprehensive both in diagnosing the tear, explaining my options, and giving me pros and cons for each scenario based on my lifestyle and activity level. The surgery and recovery were smooth and throughout my recovery every check in I was seen by him. Appointments for my next checkup were always made leaving my last, so scheduling was very easy as I know he’s extremely busy and sought after.

Dr Ciccotti is tremendous on a few levels. Firstly, his skill, credentials, and reputation are obviously beyond reproach. This man is genuinely the top of the heap in his field. Secondly, and for me this was the most important, he gave me clarity on what to expect, and reassurance that if I worked hard and followed the plan, I would be able to go back to doing the things I love to do. When I got to his office I was crushed by the prospect of never enjoying the physical pursuits that are my passions in life, but his feedback put those fears to rest. I'm very grateful that I was able to have Dr Ciccotti as my surgeon, and you would be too.

Dr. Ciccotti and his staff at Rothman have always been extremely helpful. I had some issues with my knees and they got me back to doing the activities I love to do. Dr. Ciccotti takes the time to explain things to you so that you fully understand. A lot of doctors dominate the conversation but he allows you to ask as many questions as you need without talking down to you. He's a really great doctor and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a excellent orthopedic doctor.

Dr. Ciccotti and his assistant Jen are great! Doctor listens carefully and explains the issue clearly laying out all the options and always starting with the most conservative and non-surgical option. He puts your mind at ease and is very knowledgeable at knee issues. The usual wait time is 1-2 hrs but it’s worth it.

Dr Cicotti is awesome. He performed two rotator cuff shoulder surgeries and an ACL reconstruction on my knee and my outcomes were all 100% back to normal. Dr Cicotti thoroughly explains all diagnostic tests and procedures and ensures all questions and concerns are addressed. I never feel rushed during my visits but appointments occasionally get backed up which can happen anywhere. I highly recommend Dr Cicotti.

Wonderful. He is always so professional and provide such great explanation of his findings while using pictures and notes to help you understand. I had surgery with him one year ago and is doing great. He spends time with me and made me feel like he really cares for me as an individual. Each time that I have seen him, my outcomes have been great. I would highly recommend him. Thank you Dr. Ciccotti

100% satisfied with my total knee replacement. No problems. Wonderful bedside manner. Followed up with my visits and listened to what I had to say. He provided the very best patient for me. Also his team treated me with respect before my surgery in the O.R. holding area. Care from Jeff nurses upon my stay was exceptional which I appreciated. Thank you DR, CICCOTTI AND TEAM.

Dr. Ciccotti treated my son after an injury during a wrestling match. He explained the injury and upcoming surgery fully and in language that we all understood. He treated my son with compassion and reassurance that he would be back at his sport again. He made the decision easy for us all. From the day of surgery to after, the care he and Rothman Ortho provided was well worth the drive. I highly recommend!
