I've had two total knee replacements by Dr. Desio. The first in 2015 and the second in 2017. The care that I've received from Dr. Desio and his staff has been over the top outstanding. Dr.Desio's follow up right after the surgery in recovery and during my physical rehab was beyond expectations. I would and have highly recommend Dr. Desio to friends and family.

I have been seeing Dr Desio for several years now due to an arthritic knee. After exhausting all my other options( cortisone, synvisc injections...), The time had finally come to replace the joint. Starting with the decision, to consultation, to preparation, to surgery, to post-care, Dr Desio and his staff have been fantastic. This is my third day after surgery and I'm well into my recovery with minimal pain.
