After having a severe elbow injury, I originally went to an orthopedic doctor that wanted to perform surgery immediately. I knew I needed a second opinion, so I went to Dr. Russonella. He informed me that the other doctor was wrong for wanting to operate so fast, and sent me for physical therapy instead. My elbow has been strong since, and I can’t thank Dr. Russonella enough for steering me away from another doctor who had different intentions. Over the past few years, I had come and go knee pain. I went to Dr. Russonella for X-rays in hopes to find the problem. He quickly found the issue and addressed my options. I am now pain-free 7 months after the visit, and I’m back on my skateboard and hikes. Dr. Russonella is a phenomenal doctor and overall a very professional and respectful man. Thank you again for your continued help and professionalism.

Have visited twice now for a knee injury with an MRI in between. Couldn’t be happier with office staff and Dr Russonella. Have torn MCL and sprained ACL. Not jumping straight to surgery like most would! Allowing PT first and will go from there. Super clean office, easily accessible, no long waits.

I have been seeing Dr. Russonella for painful numbness in my fingers in both hands. (Carpal Tunnel Syndrome). Dr. Russonella was very good explaining the procedure he was to perform. Upon completion of the procedure and therapy, my hands are perfectly back to normal. Dr. Russonella is 5 Stars all the way. His staff is very professional and his office is very clean and well kept. He is top of the line in all areas of orthopedics and sports medicine. I highly recommend Dr. Russonella to anyone who is in need of an orthopedic and sports medicine doctor.

Very kind man. Listens carefully to what you are saying. My mother insisted I see him after I was operated by a podiatrist who screwed up my foot and ankle.Physical therapy was good; they use a laser there and it did help, but I realized that I needed to go to another doctor. Dr Russonella actually suggested that I go to a foot specialist, as this is not his area of expertise. But my mother probably 10 years after the sugery by Russonella still raves about him. Tells me saved her leg.

I could not have asked for a more professional, compassionate and excellent surgeon. He helped my son through knee surgery which he recovered quickly with absolutely no incident. Absolutely no doubt I would recommend to anyone and everyone. Mike Petronaci

Dr. Russonella cared for two fractures in her right arm that she sustained in a car accident. One of the fracture was displaced. This usually requires surgery and the placement of a plate and a screw in order to set the bone in place. Dr. Russonella was able to quickly set the displaced fracture avoiding surgery and a scar. He is an outstanding physician.
