Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Sciortino "As an Orthopedic Surgeon, I see patients with the full range of bone and joint problems, but I am particularly interested in treatment of hip and knee osteoarthritis and shoulder problems, including rotator cuff repair, shoulder replacement, and reverse shoulder replacement. I do hip and knee replacement surgeries, including unicompartmental knee replacement if that is indicated. For total hip replacements, I use the Superpath technique, which eliminates the need for post-THR precautions and allows for faster recovery times."
