I broke the femor which came out my leg,and broke the other bone also.Tge femor was completely broke out in two places. Also statyered the hip socket. Dr Siska did a remarkable job on me, and I am walking today with a cane, but still walking. I am forever grateful to him and would send anyone to him

I love Dr Siska, he is the best orthopedic dr in Pittsburgh. My husband was in a motorcycle accident and came very close to losing his leg and Dr Siska worked hard at saving it. My husband isn’t a very good patient and Dr Siska was very patient with him. He also replaced my knee and will be replacing my other one. I won’t go to any other orthopedic dr, Dr Siska is just that good and very kind. I recommend him to everyone.

Excellent surgeon! Trauma pt. at Presby and he was my surgeon. It has been 2 years ( broke knee and ankle in a car accident ) and heal time was quick and have had no problems. People actually comment on how they forget my injury due to my mobility.

Patient and understanding of my pain. My THR was a success thanks to Siska. He even did a wall sit with me at my 6 month checkup.
