I had a total knee replacement done by Dr. Nicholas Colacchio on May 21, 2021. I was understandably somewhat anxious prior to the surgery. Dr. Colacchio and his staff were great to work with. I was already doing physical therapy prior to the surgery, and this helped a lot with the post-surgery recovery. I also attended one of the knee replacement classes hosted by Maine Medical Center which helped me understand what to expect with the surgery and post-op recovery. However, the biggest benefit was Dr. Colacchio and his staff. I was able to ask questions by calling in or through the patient portal, and got quick, helpful responses. They were also very helpful with the insurance and short-term disability paperwork. I highly recommend working with this wonderful group of people if you need to have a joint replacement done.

I had a PKR. Everything leading up to and including post operative visit was top flight. Dr. Colacchio and staff were top notch. He explained everything that was going to happen and he was attentive to all my needs and questions. 2 months after surgery, I am nearly back to normal, being able to do 90% of what I was previously able to do, with no discomfort.

I would definitely recommend Dr. Colacchio to my friends and family! I was referred to him by my sister who had recently had her hip replaced. Dr. Colacchio replaced my hip this past May and I was so happy with him, Patrick, his PA and his nurse Noel! They took their time with me and answered all of my questions. You could tell that they love what they do everyday and my quality of life has improved so much! I have a great life and two wonderful young grandsons but I couldn't do the things I wanted to do. My new hip is allowing me to live my life to the fullest thanks to Dr. Colacchio and his wonderful staff!

In November 2020, I had a much needed hip joint replacement during the pandemic. The ENTIRE team at Maine Med was amazing from start to finish. From x-rays to education, everyone did their jobs to perfection! They answered every question, explained every step and ensured I knew what to expect during recovery and was prepared. But the icing on the cake was when Dr. Colacchio called me at home the night before surgery to see if I had any remaining unanswered questions and to reassure me that all would be ok and that I should have a nice dinner and try to get a good nights rest. Love him!!! I've never heard of a surgeon ding this before. (All you surgeons out there take notice!) He was in my room within hours to check on me. I loved that he showed me the fluoroscope images for each step of the replacement. Very fascinating! This is your surgeon, if you want respectful, compassionate, competent and thorough care. you could not be in better hands. I can't thank you enough, Dr. Colacchio!

Highly recommend Dr. Colacchio. I initially started out in Augusta and went to him in search of a surgeon I was more comfortable with in dealing for my hip replacement. He was great! Took the time to explain, answered all my questions and made me feel very comfortable. He even checked in via phone the night before my operation. Everything went smooth as planned and I am pain free and moving around like a young man again. I am so pleased with the results I have gotten from his practice and would recommend him to anyone needing hip replacement surgery. Thank you!

I can't begin to give my accolades for Dr Colacchio.First of all he is so kind and patient friendly.Because of Covid my surgery was postponed several times. Dr Colacchio himself called me to let me know and see how I was doing.He also called personally the night before surgery.It was so reassuring to hear from him. I had my left knee replaced and between Dr Colacchios surgery and the block they gave me pre-op I had NO pain.Maybe a litle discomfort but for he most part it was a breeze.I myself am a healthcare provider and Dr Colacchio treated me(and I'm sure his all his other patients) with a soothing bedside manner and excellent skills. If and when my other knee needs replacement, I will be returning to Dr Colacchio. Thanks to the entire team!

I'm a 72 year old man that fell and broke his left hip while xcountry skiing in Glen NH at 4pm on a Friday afternoon. I was transported to memorial hospital in Conway NH then to Main medical arriving about midnight, that's when my bad luck changed ! because Dr Colacchio happened to be the orthopedic surgeon covering that Friday night. I talked to him briefly that night then again the next morning at 8am in pre surgery. he reassured me that I was in good hands and a hip replacement would give me the best out come. knowing I didn't have many options I asked him how many hip replacement operations have you done and he said a lot it's my signature operation, I said go for it! So in less than 24 hours from my accident I was laying in recovery with a new left hip and in a lot less pain. I just had my 6week follow up appointment and the hip replacement has been a total success. I can't thank Dr Colacchio enough and would highly recommend him for any hip replacements. :)

I found out I needed a knee replacement due to degenerative arthritis. I'm only 53 and was terrified, but knew that I would ruin my good knee if I kept using it to overcompensate. Dr. Colacchio was wonderful. He was very patient and kind - I had a ton of questions but he continued to ask me if there was anything else I wanted to know. He personally called me before and after surgery to make sure I was ready and to ensure that I was recovering well. The recovery went much better than I expected and the scar is healing well and is much less conspicuous than I thought it would be. The surgery went well, and I did not experience any nausea following surgery - that is a first for me and was a huge relief. I went home the same day due to COVID restrictions. I was fine at home. I had questions a few times and called the office and they responded quickly - it's a very efficient system. I would highly recommend Dr. Colicchio.

This organization is the very best at keeping every aspect of the surgical proceedure transparent and organized. Dr Colacchio has a wonderful bed-side manner, very calm and heartfelt. His team is well qualified to perform the pre and post surgical tasks in a welcoming and reassuring manner. Overall Dr Colacchio and his team provided the best Orthopedic Surgeon support I have ever had (and I've had several!). I'm recommending them with my whole heart, and appreciate their care and kindness.

At 72 years old I had debilitating pain on my right side which (because of long-standing back issues) proved difficult to determine the source of. I had been using a walker for nearly the past year and after several steroid injections with little relief I was finally referred to Dr. Colacchio. He quickly determined that my right hip had severe end-stage osteoarthritis and I needed a total hip replacement. I had that surgery at 7:30 one morning and at 6 the same evening I was walking with a physical therapist and a walker; with less pain than I had walking into the hospital that same morning. Dr. Colacchio was fabulous in every respect. I cannot say enough good things about him. He is helpful, extremely skillful, compassionate, a great communicator, and more. Now at 9 weeks post-surgery I am pain free and walking with no limp at all. Dr. Colacchio tells me that healing won't be complete for a year, but I feel like I did 20 years ago!

Peggy Mayette – Dec 15, 2020
At age 76 my debilitating hip pain reached a point where Dr. Colacchio with his superb technical skill using the total hip replacement anterior approach, made the pain completely disappear. I was back home the next morning after surgery. I was on no pain medication after two weeks ( I do not believe it was necessary at all in my case) and after 3 weeks walking normally with only a minor soreness as the healing progressed. It's like the problem never happened. I am grateful for the enthusiasm and outstanding care provided by Dr. Colacchio and his support staff. Absolutely top notch.

Doctor Nicholas Colacchio preformed my knee replacement the Friday before Labor Day. From my first visit with him throughout the procedure, he and his office staff were phenomenal. Both of my physical therapists were impressed with my progress, commenting on how much more advanced I was compared to the average knee replacement patient. I highly recommend this orthopedic doctor and his entire staff. He is meticulous and highly competent in knee and hip replacements. By the way, I am 77 years old. Thank you, Dr Colacchio.

Dr. Colacchio is one of the most calm, professional and patient Doctors I could ask for. Having extreme hip pain for over 3 years and not finding a solution to my situation brought tears to my eyes. The first time I met with Dr.Colacchio, I knew my life was going to change for the better. His honesty, care and commitment to transforming my new hip has increased my joy and life that is immeasurable. I'm so grateful for Dr. Colacchio , more than he'll ever know.

Maili Lafayette – Oct 20, 2020
I am over the moon with happiness after my total hip replacement with Dr. Colacchio. I was in agonizing pain due to necrosis in my right hip. My hip was virtually gone, and the femur had pushed up into the joint. My right leg was an inch and a half shorter than my left. A few hours after the surgery I was up and walking! My legs were the same length. Dr. Colacchio and his staff were very professional and compassionate. Very little pain during recovery. I was off all pain medication in about three weeks. I am 8 weeks out of surgery and feeling great! I couldn't have hoped for a better experience!

One word, AMAZING! Fell from a 10' ladder, broke hip and shoulder. Wife called 911 and was in hospital Thursday afternoon. Had full hip replacement Friday afternoon. Recovery Saturday and home Sunday afternoon. No pain meds or OTC meds after getting home. I was able to get around including up and down 13 steps in cape cod home on day one. Used walker for 6 days then Caine for 6 days then on my own. Dr Colacchio is one amazing surgeon! I never had hip pain, no limp and all is good. And all this with a mere 3" incision with no staples or sutures, just glue. Two months in and doing fantastic! If you need hip surgery, do yourself a favor and call Dr Colacchio.
