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.
