Dr. Peter Sculco is that rare combination of an outstanding skilled surgeon who is also genuinely caring and compassionate. In less than 4 months following complicated emergency surgery to repair a fractured femur along with a revision of prior hip replacement surgery, I am back to doing everything I did before. I am so grateful to be his patient and can't rave about him enough!

I could not walk a 1/2 block without excruciating pain in my right knee. I had cortisone shots and the injections which did not help. Dr. Sculco explained to me that I had bone on bone and arthritis and that a knee replacement would be beneficial. I agreed, had surgery in January, and am back riding my horses and walking again, pain free!!!! Dr. Sculco is The Best!!!!!

After limping along for longer than ideal, I was referred to Dr. Sculco for a revision of a 7 yr old total knee replacement. He was very attentive, esp to my walking peculiarities stemming from scoliosis. His confidence, knowledge & kindness wowed me & on 3/15/17 Dr. Sculco persevered through my arduous knee revision. In contrast to 2 earlier painful TKA's , most remarkably, this expertly managed complex revision enabled me to have a very rapid recovery with minimal discomfort

Dr Peter Sculco is a kind, dedicated physican. He is truly a genius who was willing to take my difficult case. He has created in his practice....along with his competent Jessica and Sophia....a down-to-earth demeanor that is conducive to compassionate healing. This was my first experience with PAs as they were not present when I had my previous surgeries at HSS. I found most of them to be intrusive & somewhat rude as they would relay patient incidents , some of which were not factual.

Dr Sculco took the time and intérest to find out how to fix my knee problems. After two physicians two replacements and a revision surgery I was still in discomfort. Dr Sculco looked at my films and did thorough exams to come up with a treatment plan. Traveling to HSS in New York was the best decision I made regarding my knee. He is thorough, kind, compassionate and accessible with answers to your questions. I would highly recommend Dr Sculco.
