    Dr. Margolis performed a 5 hour surgery on me in 2011. My elbow had been completely crushed and he replaced my radial head with titanium. To this day (2016) I haven't experienced any pain or problems and have regained full mobility of my joint, which most people said wouldn't be possible. He was absolutely courteous and professional throughout. I truly couldn't be more pleased that I had him as my surgeon. I feel he saved me from what could have been a major disability! Great facility too!
