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...more
