Dr. Valastro did an excellent job on my shoulder surgery. He replaced my AC joint and my shoulder feels fantastic! Feels like I'm 20 years old again playing college baseball. Highly recommend.

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.
