      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.
