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.
