Dr. Ruffolo is the best orthopedic surgeon I have ever had and I have had 2 hips replaced and both knees have a partial knee replacement. I moved to Garner and my last partial knee was done by Dr. Ruffolo. From the moment I meet him I felt true concern and a caring personality with him. It was the most successful surgery I have had. I highly reccomend him.

Dr. Ruffolo performed a total knee replacement for me. He took his time and explained everything and made me feel very comfortable - before and after the surgery. He is very caring and compassionate and I will definitely refer people to him. I have already sung his praises to others with similar knee issues. He and his staff are wonderful.

I needed a total knee replacement. Dr Ruffolo explained the entire procedure and what to expect. The operation was a total success and I feel terrific. He is an outstanding surgeon. Should my other knee need replacement, I am going back to Dr Ruffolo without hesitation!

Dr Ruffolo diagnosed my problem, even though it was not orthopedic in nature. He has a wonderful bedside manner. He listens to what you are saying and responds appropriately. I would definitely recommend him for any hip or knee problems.

Dr. Ruffolo uses the anterior approach to hip replacement which does not cut any muscles. I may have pushed myself a little as I was able to return to my management position in three weeks. Three months post op all looks good. I am still working on range of motion and strength which relates to being 64 years of age. The horrible hip pain I had experienced a few years prior to surgery was gone as soon as operation was complete. Dr. Ruffolo takes time to listen and explain. His staff is good

I would recommend Dr. Ruffolo to anyone needing hip replacement surgery. From my experience he is an excellent surgeon. I could not have asked for a better outcome with very little pain and a quick recovery.

I had a 42 year old injury of my left hip and had experienced many secondary complications. I was not sure if I could find someone to replace it. Dr. Ruffalo assessed my history and current state and assured me he could do an anterior approach surgery. From the beginning and throughout the case, I felt valued, informed and cared for with respect and dignity. His bedside manner was exemplary and he has followed though with my care in a professional and caring manner. He met all of my expectations
