Cavallo To anyone who wants superior Orthopedic care!

Yonkers, NY |
Dr. Cavallo got rid of my shoulder pain and I can now get back to playing golf. Excellent orthro
in Greenwich, CT |
Dr. Cavallo is an excellent doctor. He explained my knee problems in layman's language, helped me resolve issues with my knees and didn't try to suggest unnecessary procedures. It was clear he had my sincere interests at heart. I would recommend him to anybody with knee problems.
Mount Kisco, NY |
Great staff and doctor. Two separate knee replacement surgeries with great results. Highly recommend.
in White plains , new york |
I had the best patient Doctor experience with Dr Cavallo who did my knee replacement for both kneese separately. He was kind and very knowledgeable about the procedures
in White Plains, NY |
Great doctor; unfortunately his nurse Ratchet refuses to give him messages which led me to be in unnecessary pain as well as rehab. I would never recommend his Rye Brook office's'nurse'(?). The most passive-aggressive girl I've ever met. So much so that I have been led to question Dr. Cavello's diagnoses and I don't think I'll ever call his office ever again. The nurse Ratchet doesn't & wouldn't give him messages anyway. Evil. If you choose Dr. Cavello I'd recommend his Stamford office instead
in Flemington, NJ |
6 years ago, I received an ACL allograft and MCL repair. I was a very active 46 yr old mom of triplets from another state. I found Dr. Cavallo through Castle-Connolly. He treated me as an active woman not, just a 46 year old. He made sure I was in the OR just 6 days after my 2nd appt. to confirm his diagnosis via CT scan at Greenwich Hospital. I'd never consider any other doctor for knee surgery. I believe Dr. Cavallo's superior surgery is why I'm still very active and physically fit today!!!
in Norwalk, CT |
I needed rotator cuff repair, and Dr. Cavallo reattached a torn tendon in my right shoulder and fixed a bone spur that contributed to the tear. Thank you, Dr. Cavallo, I did what you told me to do with the physical therapist (CT Sports Physical Therapy and Wellness), and my recovery was complete and on schedule. You are a wonderful surgeon, and I highly recommend your services- thank you!
in Mamaroneck NY |
Dr. Cavallo is truly a superb Orthopedist! He knows his stuff, to put it plainly! It's so nice to have a doctor who is kind, knowledgeable, caring and doesn't rush during your appointment. His conservative approach and ability to make the right decision makes him one of a kind. His staff is wonderful, his office is clean and up to date, and I highly recommend Dr. Cavallo to all that are looking for help!
in Trumbull, CT |
Dr Cavallo literally saved my life. He operated on me with several severe infections that left me with infected bones. He expertly removed those bones and helped me to regain my health. In addition I saw this courageous and moral man in action on many levels over the years. I would not goto anyone else.
in Stamford, CT |
My father has been seeing Dr. Cavallo for many years. He's an excellent doctor.
in Greenwich, CT |
I have had many issues with my joints and Dr. Cavallo has always been spot on with his diagnosis. I went for my 2 year follow up for my bilateral knee replacements and I am doing wonderful and am now much more active. I couldn't be more happy with Dr. Cavallo and his expertise in Orthopedics. Thank you for giving my life back.
in New Canaan, CT |
Extremely knowledgeable , friendly and competent. Was back on my feet 1 day after knee surgery. For orthopedic surgery he is the surgeon to go to . Thank you Dr. Cavallo.
in Harrison, NY |
I went to see Dr. Cavallo for a recent bout of shoulder pain. He was able to properly and accurately diagnose the problem without any hesitation. I followed his suggestions and am back to 100%. I have already sent my wife and sister.
in Stamford, CT |
Took very little time to look at my injury. And on second opinion with another doctor, realized that he misdiagnosed my injury. I was in pain for weeks because of it, and was sent to un necessary physical therapy.
