Micro-fracture surgery. By far the worst surgery I've had. 6 months after surgery my knee "clicks and pops" probably 20 times a day. His nurse is virtually unreachable and the communication from his office is horrible if it exists at all.

I met Dr.Valastro for knee pain. Using X-ray, he educated me with detailed info on where the bone density was low and normal, where cartilage tissue had degenerated and its severity, amount of physical exercise that is okay & not okay, strengthening ex, weight reduction to prolong surgery. When asked question, he took extra effort to pull back the X-ray from system and explain us again. He provided short and long term solution. He was kind, cool & took time to explain even after working hrs.
