I highly recommend Dr Desio as an orthopedic surgeon. The time line within which I was scheduled for an office apt MRI and surgery was very reasonable. Dr Desio and his office staff were exceptionally accommodating efficient and very pleasant.My MRI displayed a complex injury to my rotator cuff. However through the expertise of a talented orthopedic surgeon my surgery was a success as well as my followup treatment plan. My shoulder is restored to full capacity and I am pain free.

Excellent surgeon! Always felt I was getting the best care. My shoulder replacement went perfectly.. Some office visits waiting time might be a bit long, but I know it is because Dr. Desio never rushes a patient. He will listen to all your concerns and put you at ease. I would highly recommend him.

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.
