Best in class. I needed pretty significant work on my ankle: arthroscopy for loose bodies, plus open-incision work to repair torn ligaments and a damaged tendon. The entire experience has been flawless, from pre-op diagnosis to the surgery to post-op. That kind of surgery isn't pleasant, but my recovery has been a close to textbook as you can get. My physical therapist (not affiliated with Palumbo) said it's one of the best ankle repairs he has ever seen. I recommend without reservation.
