Dr. Viola performed emergency surgery on me after a major ski accident. He is a very serious, committed doctor who expects excellence from all his colleagues. I was hospitalized for a week, and he visited me often. I am healing well, due to his incredible skill during 3 separate surgeries.

Dr. Viola has once again come to my rescue. He had previously performed surgery on my hand, this time it was on my leg after a traumatic ski injury. I am so thankful he was there to perform a very difficult surgery and I am on my way to getting back on the slopes. He is very professional, meticulous and a perfectionist. Everything a patient would want in a surgeon. I have had 30+ years of experience as an Emergency, trauma and flight nurse so I can say exceptional. Thank you Dr. Viola! Grateful!

Dr. Viola repaired my dominant hand and helped me return to snowshoeing and playing piano. He is a proficient surgeon and took the time to explain all about the procedure and the recovery. I would highly recommend him and will use him again in the future, if the need arises.

Dr. Viola and his crew performed surgery on my shattered arm and hand on a late Saturday afternoon, after surgeons in Denver turned me away. I am profoundly grateful for their time and expertise, and highly recommend starting with them!

Dr. Viola performed multiple surgeries and I have received no relief due to a misdiagnosis of the cause of my pain. I got a second opinion, and due to the surgeries Dr. Viola performed, I am not a candidate for the surgery that would relieve my pain. After 3 surgeries he tried to recommend yet another operation that again would not have benefitted me. I have never written a negative review but I felt it was important to share my experience with others.

Dr. Viola reconstructed my elbow and wrist after an extremely severe mountain biking accident. He's likely one of the only surgeons in the world who would have been able to repair my elbow to anatomically correct condition. I'm working on getting my PhD in Aerospace engineering to become an astronaut, this would not be possible without Dr. Viola's expertise in repairing my arm.

Dr. Viola performed extremely difficult surgery when I tore the tendon in my little finger by replacing it with some of my IT Band. He replaced the IT Band with a cadaver. He also shortened my ulnar bone. I have been told my sutures match the best Plastic Surgeons. When I had a question, he phoned me. He responds to emails. He is very busy because he does procedures that few can perform. His goal is to return the athlete, no matter the person's age, to his or her sport(s).
