What People Say About Dr. Michael Nuzzo, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I was referred to Dr. Nuzzo by my primary care physician. He was quick to get me in and diagnose my issue. A torn labrum on my left hip. He clearly explained my options, explained what he would need to do to correct my situation. Scheduled surgery within a couple weeks. I was walking without crutches or a walker within 10 days. Today I went for my 7 week post op review, and while I still have tenderness, and a bit of fatigue, the pain is gone. My wife and I like Dr. Nuzzo and his straight forward approach so much, that she will request a referral from her primary care doctor for review of her knee pain.

Performed an arthroscopic labrum tear debridement, acetabuloplasty chrondoplasty and femoroplasty. In other words, cleaned up my left hip joint that had a bad labral tear. Doctor was very clear about procedure and the results were excellent.

Dr Nuzzo successfully performed reverse shoulder replacement on me. A complicated procedure, no complaints. I believe he is highly qualified and very competent.

Dr. Nuzzo performed my Fresh Osteochondral Allograft Transplantation (OATS) Surgery in December 2017 and I could not be any happier with his work! After a pretty severe soccer injury to the cartilage in my knee, I wasn’t sure I’d ever get back to normal. Today, 6 months later, I am happy to say I’m cleared for all activities and feeling great! I can’t thank Dr Nuzzo and his staff enough for all they’ve done. Appointments were quick, nurses were pleasant, and Dr made me feel at ease!

I have suffered from hip pain for years. Dr. Nuzzo did an excellent job of repairing my hip and now I'm back to walking and biking again. I couldn't be more pleased with having the surgery.

Dr. Nuzzo repaired a meniscus tear in my left knee last year (2016). Surgery was a breeze. Didn't even need physical therapy. Was walking on left leg same day! Dr. Nuzzo replaced my entire left shoulder (reverse total shoulder replacement) on Feb 6, 2017. Gave me a nerve block. When I woke up after surgery, there was absolutely no pain. Even after the nerve block work off, I didn't experience any pain. Went to physical therapy for four months. Shoulder is like new, no pain anymore!

Dr. Nuzzo performed a Rotator cuff repair on my right shoulder August 8, 2016. All my questions were answered to my satisfaction. The surgery went well with physical therapy after. My recovery is progressing and I am able to get back to Pilates and daily activities.

His staff was professional and very well organized. Dr. Nuzzo was very personable, articulating, and easy to understand when he was explaining to me what surgery/arthroscopy he thought needed to done. Everything went as perfect as can be. I only had to take 4 pain pills for pain and was back dancing in 2 weeks. I was fully recovered for my long walks and all types of dancing in 4 weeks with no pain after the second day. I'm pain free and feel great. Thanks Dr. Nuzzo!!!!!!

He did an ACL reconstruction on me after an injury in June 2015. I was unable to go back to work for 2 1/2 months. Still had pain and knee would NOT go straight. Finally got a second opinion in December 2015 where I was shown from imaging that the first surgery/graft was placed completely wrong and had a screw hitting the back of my kneecap, so it could NEVER go straight! Had to have a second surgery to correct it. Getting calls back..............forget it!

Dr. Nuzzo and the staff at SPOC provided excellent care to me when I fell and broke my ankle. It was a traumatic injury for me. I received caring support from my initial visit through the surgery and during these months of recuperation. I have already recommended Dr. Nuzzo to several friends that have orthopedic needs.

Dr. Nuzzo repaired a severe rotater cuff in my left shoulder. He and his office made sure I understood the procedure, the timing and the recovery before committing to having this done. He is direct yet patient. Several weeks following surgery, I began experiencing pain again and he was able to get me in quickly and reassure me that this was normal and my earlier pain-free post surgery status was not average - that the new pain was typical and to keep doing PT and all I had been.

I brought my daughter to Dr. Nuzzo for an ACL repair. It was by far the best medical experience we have had. Dr. Nuzzo and his staff were very professional and courteous. Dr. Nuzzo genuinely cares about his patients. He listened to our concerns and answered any questions we asked. I would definitely recommend Dr. Nuzzo to any of my family and or friends.

I would recommend Dr Nuzzo to anyone who asks, his personality is easy going and he explains things well. I fractured my Humerus skiing, Dr Nuzzo placed some screws and a plate in my arm. This was back in January 2016 and 3 months later all heeled and doing well!
