I was having terrible lower back pain for years that would get worse anytime I had to stand or walk any distance. I tried chiropractors, tens units, and back braces for years with little relief. My primary Dr. said to go see an orthopedic surgeon. I talked to a few of them and did not feel comfortable with any of them. A friend recommended Dr Violante. It took a few months to get in to see him but I am so glad I waited! Dr. Violante did both of my hips at the same time. Yep, both! He told me I was a good candidate for both at once. I was thrilled! Once and done,.. perfect for me. He is an excellent surgeon, and I would recommend him to everyone. He cares and he listens to what you have to say! I have NO back pain anymore. This man gave me my life back with his expertise, knowledge, steady hands and wonderful staff! I will be forever grateful to him.

I would absolutely recommend Dr. Violante to anyone needing hip surgery. I was basically an invalid, unable to walk without severe pain for two years. Dr. Violante gave me my life back. I had a wonderful experience with Excelsior.

Dr. Violante is so kind hearted. He truly listens to his patients concerns. He makes you feel welcomed right from the start. He explains everything to you especially medical terms. He answers all your questions and does not make you feel like your taking up all his time. He doesn't rush you out the door like other doctors do. He takes his time and wants to make sure your comfortable with your medical decision. He is truly a gentlemen with compassion for all his patients. I would highly recommend him to anyone for surgery.

I was referred to him and heard very good things. I was not impressed. I have constant knee pain and was told that my knees are fine. I went to another orthopedic dr and found that their us sn issue with my left knee. Also I was getting pain on my leg and again told me it's ok. I found out again there was an issue. I had an infection. I'm do glad I'm no longer Dr. Dr. Violantes patient. My opinion is his us very judgemental if you are overweight!

Had total hip replacement on February 25 at the surgery center... Three weeks later I'm driving walking without pain and returning to work next week... The whole experience was great and I highly recommend Dr. Violante and his team... Also shout out to the nurses at the recovery suite... Very friendly and professional!!

Waited 3 mths to see him since I heard he was the best to help with debilitating hip pain. On my way to appt, they called & said he was running late & asked me to come in 2 hrs later. Spent a total of 3 hrs there, about 15 minutes with him. He was in & out of the room seeing 3 other patients. Didn't do any kind of exam, rushed through viewing my MRI and said I had a bone spur (MRI report said complex labrum tears). Said he couldn't help me, get on antidepressants & yoga. HUGE disappointment!

Had hip replacement surgery on June 20. I am in more pain now than before my surgery due to scar tissue, inflammation, ripped tissue and a torn muscle. I was told today by Dr. Violante’s PA that they may not be able to resolve this and relieve the pain! There is so much more I could say about this entire experience but it is too upsetting.

Dr. Violante gave me and my family our lives back. I went in for Bilateral Hip replacements late June 2018 and was back to work driving school bus by September. I was up walking the same day, on my way home the next morning! By week four out of surgery I was already able to do more with less pain than before replacement. Surgery went smoothly he said it only took a half hour per side! No blood was needed. Dr. I Thank you and my family Thanks you! Happy holidays to you and your family.
