He is a man of few words but he projects warmth and explains the condition and required treatment so that the patient understands everything clearly and fully. I also need to comment on the fact that he looked where no-one else had thought of looking for over a year when I had been complaining of knee pain. In addition to x-raying my knee, he also x-rayed my hip and this disclosed the fact that I had a completely destroyed left hip and the pain I was experiencing was referred pain from my hip

Dr. Incavo is an excellent surgeon! I had a complete hip replacement in early February, 2016. From start to finish, the whole process was fine-tuned, streamlined and very efficient. I had zero wait time in his office for both of my visits (pre-op and post-op). His staff is knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. The results have been better than I could have imagined. If I were to do it over again, I would have had Dr. Incavo perform the surgery sooner.

I had both knees replaced on Dec. 27th and came out of surgery with almost full range of movement. I was able to perform all therapy at home and returned to work 5 weeks later. Dr. Incavo is far the best in my mind.
